Since its inauguration in 2012, Heliopolis University launched its Internship Program as a gateway for its students to real life engagement and commitment in partnership with national and international institutions. In 2017, Karim Elwakkad, a Business student at Heliopolis University spent a two-month internship in a company called “Guntrams 11 KG” in Winerneustadt, Austria. Guntrams 11 KG is specialized in food products.
Karim joined Guntrams 11 KG at the start of a new project. His assigned tasks focused on calculating the cost of production and profits as well.
“I worked in the production line as well and I was not on my desk the whole day. I was part of a team with two other Austrians. My training depended mainly on experiencing the whole process and practicing. I had a great time as I got to know new people and deal with different cultures. I also went on a short trip around Europe and visited some fantastic cities as Paris, Vienna, Munich, Frankfurt, Graz, and Stuttgart,” says Karim.
