Internship | Various Locations

Each week will take place in a different European country and will begin with basic topics working up to more advanced specialised PM topics and horizontal topics including materials science and engineering and entrepreneurship, case studies in factories or universities and a plant visit.

Following the training weeks, a three-week internship will be proposed to the participants either in a factory or in a university, to practice what they have learnt during the course in an actual working environment. At the end of the training, an EPMA certificate will be granted after evaluation by an exam.

PM Life is aimed at participants who hold at least a Master’s degree and have some knowledge on materials science. They may already work in the PM field or wish to enter this field.
