General Information About Summer Practice

There are two internships in METU PETE undergraduate program. The rules and procedures for those two internship activities are explained below.

You yourself should find a suitable place for the summer practice. It is solely your responsibility.

The quotas are determined by the companies and distributed by the department considering CGPA of the applicant students. Note that those quotas are usually very limited in number. You will be informed about the quotas and application period during the semester.
