Our objectives

The RC Adria Internship is a part of the Regional Center Adria, an EIT RawMaterials Hub.

The main aim of the Internship Programme is to enable students enrolled in the master’s study programmes to work as interns in different companies and institutions, but at the same time, to train a certain number of future trainers at the aforementioned companies/institutions. The matching and cooperation between the students and the industry will help to develop a new generation of young professionals with fresh attitudes, innovative ideas and an already existing awareness of real-life challenges in the raw materials sector. Therefore, the programme is envisaged as a booster to new concepts of high education and early employment strategies.

Internship FAQS

What are the impressions of former ADRIA Interns

I personally see this Internship as a significant and high – quality experience, and I would like the realization to continue.

Jovan Milićević, an Intern, an Intern

The ADRIA Internship program is a great opportunity to gain new work experience and develop work skills and habits. It’s interesting to learn through practice from people who have been in business for a long time and are able to get us through the work assignments, so we really do learn something. Also, through this program, we get to know people who may be of use to us in our future careers. Students have the opportunity to apply the theory in practice and develop communication skills, rational thinking at the moment of action, and develop a sense of teamwork and responsibility towards the work tasks.

We are open to future collaboration and a new year of the Internship Programme.

MSc Nadira Halilović, a Supervisor from AD HARBI Ltd

For me, internship was a once in a lifetime positive experience and I would recommend it to all students. First hand experience and feeling the work on a real job market with adequate mentorship is a great way to finish graduate studies. An excellent kickoff to start your career and to improve professional development.
