most of which come from Europe, is increasing rapidly. There were around 50 interns at the top

September, October. In July and August you should never leave the house without an umbrella

accommodation

I was housed in a dormitory on campus, which was for us interns

was free. Like everything in India the dormitories were of course strictly gendered

separated and everything strongly regulated. So it was officially entering the campus and admission to the

Dormitory banned or made a criminal offense after 11 a.m. Fortunately, these rules were made

mostly relaxed for us.

Otherwise I had to change my accommodation once. The first accommodation was very simple

held and I had to share the room with another intern. That's what she was for

centrally located in the campus. The second accommodation was luxurious by Indian standards

means it was new, had hot water (even from the shower) and all the furniture was

also new. In return, my commute to work was extended from initially 10 minutes to over 20 minutes.

There weren't any cooking facilities or washing machines, something through restaurants and laundries

was replaced.


internship

I was employed at the “aeronautical and automobile department” and worked in one

interdisciplinary project. It was about the mechanical consideration of dental implants.

The overall goal was to make your own implant while mine

The area of ​​responsibility was the mechanical analysis of existing implants using FEM software

understand the different mechanical mechanisms. This is the basis for designing a

new implant.

My working hours were very flexible because I got the software from the employer

and was therefore able to work on my own computer. I have regular meetings

coordinated with my supervisor about the professional approach and results,

as well as with the supervisor on the dental side. Overall, the care was very good as she

found time for me regularly. On the other hand, you have to state that you are in India

but should bring a little patience every now and then.

Leisure and everyday life

Due to the high number of international interns, there was always something going on. The

affects both daily food in the restaurants, sports or relaxed bar evenings.

Weekend trips to nearby attractions, whether organized by IAESTE or privately

the rule. So you could negotiate with your supervisor over a long weekend

or use one of the numerous public holidays. However, it should be noted that traveling in India very

takes a lot of time as it is slow. Officially it is in India Saturdays working days, what for

but not for me.

Conclusion

Overall, it can be said that it was an experience that I don't want to miss. I have many

met new interesting people, was able to expand my professional knowledge and

saw a lot about the country, people and culture.
