We invite you to learn all about the internship process.


  • Making a connection between the academic and productive sectors.
  • Strengthening students’ skills in different areas through several types of internship.
  • Applying students’ knowledge to the productive sector.
  • Promoting social outreach and work participation.
  • Improving graduates’ employment rates.


Our different types of internship enable students to use their theoretical knowledge in some areas of their choosing: research, academic, social, or corporate fields. It is up to them to decide on one of them, fulfill the specific requirements, and develop their skills in that area.

The internship provides the students with necessary experience so that, in future job applications, it constitutes a real advantage and improves their professional profile. This will surely increase their employability for the position.

If the internship has been completed under an internship or apprentice agreement and the intern has shown an outstanding performance, there is a good possibility that the company will be willing to hire this person. This really facilitates their access to the work force, professional improvement, and a better salary. It is more difficult when students have completed their studies and need to look for a job by themselves.

Types of Internship

This type involves a relationship between companies and students that are not necessarily hired to meet intern quota by SENA. We expect to contribute and participate from the specific fields of knowledge of the education programs offered by ITM.

This modality is developed within the framework of Law 789 of 2002, where each company with a certain number of employees has the obligation to hire apprentices. It is considered apprentice to the student who is in technological and professional formation that contemplates business practice in the development of the pensum of his professional career.

Under this model, students can undertake their internship to work on projects run by entities and social organizations that foster social and economic development for the less fortunate sectors of the population or develop projects that aim to improve social stability.
