Professional Integration

To aid in the process of making a seamless integration into the professional world, throughout their education, 42 students will have numerous opportunities to gain real-world experience.

They are encouraged (and required) to participate in internships during two key intermediary periods of the academic career: at the end of the first third as well as at the end of the final third of the learning experience. Furthermore, 42’s service of corporate relations organizes events throughout the year such as: get-togethers, hackathons, conferences, etc. in order to help guide students in finding internships. Lastly, there is no geographical restrictions when it comes to internships: they can take place in Paris or throughout France, in the San Francisco Bay Area or even abroad.

In addition to the required internship periods, the work that they perform on company projects provides them with multiple opportunities to implement their acquired knowledge in a workplace environment. Growing out of these internships and company projects, where their overall technical levels are broadened in ways that studies alone cannot always ensure, students begin to form and expand their professional networks.
