Science & Engineering Internship programme
Intellectual property for students in engineering and science
Economic growth depends very much on innovative technology. Intellectual property (IP) is becoming increasingly important, so an understanding of it can be a great asset for science and engineering students. Every year, the European Patent Office offers a limited number of students the opportunity to find out about the work of its patent examiners, all of them leading experts in their technical fields and in patent law. For a limited duration, you will work in a truly international environment, side by side with an experienced examiner, who will be your tutor during the internship.
Every year, the EPO offers a limited number of three to six-month internships to engineering and science students who already hold a bachelor's (or equivalent level) degree.
This is a unique opportunity to discover one of the world's leading patent offices and to work in a truly international environment. Interns work side by side with examiners who tutor them throughout the internship. They carry out complex re-classification work on patent applications and receive training relating to patents and other areas of IP, and various aspects of an examiner's work.
