Internships

Integrated internships (case studies or introductory case studies) are completed during the course of study. The second such internship (Case Studies II in the Master Statistics or Case Studies in the Master Data Science and Master Econometrics) can also be done as an external internship in a company or in another statistical institution.

General conditions

An agreement with a professor of the Faculty of Statistics has to be made in advance (internal supervision). Further details and explanations can be found in the General Notes on External Internship.

The general notes summarize the ideas and conditions arising from the examination and study regulations and describe basic features of such internships. The checklists are intended in particular as brief information for the internship institutions. Fundamental for the recognition as Case Studies II or Case Studies (in each case a graded certificate of achievement) is the corresponding examination regulation.

Search for internship institutions

It is expected that students who are interested in an external internship will largely take care of finding a suitable institution themselves. Possible companies and institutions that offer internship positions to statistics, data science, or econometrics graduates can be found on the Internship Board or also on the Job Board.

The "Statistik im Beruf" lecture series also frequently provides information about internship opportunities at the featured institutions.

Contacts for external internships (throughout Germany and beyond) can also be made with the graduates of the faculty in the Alumni Association Dortmunder Statistikerinnen und Statistiker e.V..

The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
