Instructions for composing your training report

The compulsory training in our M. Sc programmes consists of 2 months of full time work, supervised by a qualified engineer in a relevant enterprise. To have your 3 training credits confirmed, you need to report this training.

After the employer has reviewed the report you can return it to study office (TS110-114). The training report will be approved by a representative of CSE: Riku Hietaniemi (TS336).

The template for the front page layout can be found from here. The extent of the report should be 5-10 pages (appendices excluded). It is recommendable to enclose material such as enterprise organizational charts, annual reports or product brochures.

The aim of the training report is to show that the trainee thoroughly knows the company organization, not only the department he/she is directly involved with at work.

The report should present the organization of the enterprise, e.g. as follows:

  • strategy
  • a brief look into the main developments since establishment
  • ownership, partnerships and shareholding companies
  • administration
  • production, marketing, sales promotion
  • turnover, cost structure
  • working conditions
  • leisure activities
  • the tasks assigned to the trainee

The contents of the report can and should adjust to the specific characteristics of the enterprise concerned.
