Unified Program of Internship (PUE)

The Unified Program of Internship (PUE) at CNPEM stands out for its training and development aspects through the constant monitoring of the activities carried out by the interns.

The program is aimed at Brazilian students from technical courses and undergraduate that are looking for opportunities in the scientific, technological or administrative areas.

Guided mainly by its educational aspect, the internship program has trained hundred of students on high-school and higher education, some of which later came to join the team.

The unified program selection occurs annually, always in the second semester, so that the trainees can commence activities in January of the following year. The duration of the course is 1 year and may be extended for an equal period. The selection process phase consists of the analyzes of curriculum and school history, written evaluation, group dynamic and interviews.

A Training Plan will be presented to students during the admission process, with the activities that will be developed, under qualified supervision, throughout the period of the contract established with the institution. While serving as a guide to their development, the Training Plan is also a guarantee that their training will be a priority and that it will be completed.

The Program offers:

  • Scholarship (with values regarding training of 30 hours/week, and may be readjusted according to the number of hours assigned);
  • Medical Assistance;
  • Life Insurance;
  • Transport and bus passes;
  • On-site meals.
