As any expert will tell you – it’s that moment when you step out of your comfort zone that you really start learning. But when your colleagues are some of the best engineers around, these challenges are easier to overcome, don’t you think? It’s as if you are preparing for an important exam, but you have a bunch of professor-grade students helping you out. An internship at Elsys Eastern Europe comes with a mentorship program, lab practice, lectures and work on an actual commercial project. It’s time to put the theory into practice at a place where your ideas and smarts matter.
The biggest question during studies is choosing the right domain in which to start your career. Direct contact with industry, through internship in company, is one of the best ways for answering that question.
Internship gives you first-hand experience, an invaluable thing when making a decision about future employment. As our internship is entering its third and final month, we’ve found the answers to most of our questions.
Considering that internship is the student’s first real step in an unfamiliar industry, hard work and dedication are essential for further professional and personal development. After initial lectures, more than two months are spent on a single project – a real world example of what client may request.
Internship is demanding and yet entirely tailored to student’s level. Project is done solo, with support from a mentor – an experienced engineer from the company. This definitely makes it challenging, but success is all that sweeter. Another advantage is the possibility for a project to be reshaped into a final thesis.
Unique situation during our internship moved us all to remote work. As we are a service company, work with clients is almost exclusively through online calls. Conversations with the mentor were exactly the same, and it was crucial to be efficient and clear when describing issues and solutions. Although unexpected, it was definitely a welcome experience.
Internship at Elsys EE has given me a chance to work in a serious company in the domain of my interest. It also helped me decide if this is what I want to do for a living.
The domain of my choice is Analog Layout. The work is interesting and creative here, and I’ve learned a lot in the past two months. My mentor is very patient and always ready to provide help and advice. I felt no pressure, the work is done efficiently and without problems. Both the people I worked with so far and the environment are great! I found no difficulties in coordinating my studies with internship, in fact there was plenty of time for some extra activities.
All in all, I’m satisfied and I can recommend Elsys EE as the place to go for all the students that want to learn more about this industry in a pleasant and relaxed environment.
Hi, my name is Valentina. I’m a student of the fourth year of the School of Technical Engineering (ETF) in Belgrade, electronics major. Here is a short summary of my internship in Elsys Eastern Europe.
My internship domain was Analog Mixed-Signal Verification. I applied for winter internship because it went well with my other obligations during the studies. It is possible to focus on both work and your studies if you have strong discipline and work habits (and I suppose everyone at ETF already has those). Worktime is 8 hours (from 9h to 17h). I must admit, this proved quite challenging at first because I wasn’t used to spending so much time in one place.
But my colleagues here at Elsys EE welcomed me with smiling faces, and this left a positive impression on me. You could see there was an overall positive vibe in the workplace. Another thing that surprised me was that they treated interns as equals – nobody was acting older and smarter than the rest.
All the lectures we attended were really well-presented. The lecturers all had years of experience in the AMS domain, and they did their best to explain the verification process. We learned a lot in just one month thanks to our mentors.
I chose Elsys EE because this company is growing and developing. I was looking for a way to learn from progress-oriented people, with knowledge and experience. And I found what I was looking for here!
I can strongly recommend Elsys EE internship program to anyone aiming to improve their verification skills.
Elsys EE got my attention in the second year of my studies. I had some doubts that I will be able to keep up both my studies and internship obligations, but with a little bit of effort everything is achievable. Not once have I regretted my decision to start my internship here.
Most of all, I appreciate the environment and relaxed vibe in the office. I am very satisfied with the the way people communicate with interns – everybody is willing to help! Our mentors are patient and they don’t mind repeating the lecture a hundred times if need be. Overall, my expectations were met and I’m certain I’ve made the right decision in coming here.
Prof. dr. Lazar Saranovac from School of Electrical engineering, ETF, talks about donations that improved quality of lectures and enabled faculty to keep up with industry trends.
Prof. dr. Saša Stojanović from School of Electrical engineering, ETF, indicates how valuable and quite often crucial role silicon chips play in our life, from everyday situations (texting or sending gify to your loved-ones) to life-saving encounters (e.g. life supporting computer). Modern technologies empower us in many ways that we are not even aware of.
Prof. dr. Jelena Popović from School of Electrical engineering, University of Belgrade points out multiple benefits and opportunities a career in semiconductor industry can offer to a freshly graduate student of electronica.
Prof. dr. Radivoje Đurić from School of Electrical engineering, ETF, talks about early beginnings of our collaboration and the impact it has on a practical segments of bachelor and master studies.
Do we run a sweatshop or do we play ping-pong whole day? What kind of people work in Elsys EE: are they young, are they boring, what’s the dress code? What do the offices in Belgrade and Novi Sad look like? We give you behind-the-scenes look at our day-to-day work, a list of benefits, video reports and testimonials from some of our colleagues.
