Currently, the institutionalization of professional internships is under discussion in the PPGEE Collegiate, especially for the masters level, even for the academic modality, extrapolating to the professional masters modality. Such strategy can be implemented due to the strong interaction that PPGEE researchers have with the companies that work in the region. There are basically two types of professional internship: 1. Direct action of the students in the parks of the companies, based on agreements signed with the PPGEE for this type of specific training. Some of these agreements are already in progress, notably in the areas of Telecommunications and Electrical Systems, such as ERICSSON and ELETRONORTE; 2. Development of collaborative solutions, from the research laboratories of the PPGEE, where both PPGEE researchers / students and professionals from the involved companies.
