    Inter in a Microwave and RF Research laboratory

    Test and Development Engineer (Intern) (Former Employee) Limours (France)

    Proshighly equipped environment, great amount of knowledge and skilled people on the field, challenging projects

    Consnone, it's still one of the best opportunity one can get for a internship

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would advise to keep recruiting students from which aren't in the heights of the School ranking in France. Especially in a really technical environment similar to the labs I worked in, practical task are very well handled by student with good practical background.
    Despite this, my direct management was really great and I had a really good experience working over there as an Intern
