Evaluation : The work placement will be evaluated by means of a detailed report (8,000-10,000 words) and an oral defense of 10 minutes (5 minutes PowerPoint presentation and 5 minutes question and answer session). The report and oral defense must be in one of the students' major languages and will be evaluated by a supervisor (teacher) appointed by the master committee.
A fail for the written report or for the oral defense means an overall fail for the internship.
