Gain professional skills in an internship-like experience

IEU Labs are IE University’s alternative to traditional work placements. They provide hands-on, internship-like experience on campus to first and second year students that wish to start gaining professional practice. There are many IEU Labs for you to choose from, and by joining one you will not only get to build your professional profile and gain valuable practical knowledge of different sectors, but you will also have direct contact with managers and directors of leading companies, extending your professional network.

What are the IEU Labs?

Fully-tutored working spaces where students develop professional projects and work closely with companies and institutions. An excellent opportunity for students who want a hands-on experience, and to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge and professional skills.

Who can join?

IEU Labs are aimed to 1st and 2nd year students, but seniors are always welcome. All students from any program are welcome to apply to any IEU Lab.

How much work?

Second semester: Work during 5 continuous months (workload: 4 to 6 hours per week). Intensive period: After your exams until the end of June (workload: 4 to 6 hours per day).
