Summer Exchange Programs

internship Program w732

Summer programs allow students to participate in designed and structured courses during the summer semester in an unlimited number of institutions (not limited to partner universities). Most summer programs are not part of the academic calendar, and therefore are not included under the exchange agreements.

Application to summer programs is scheduled by the host institution and is not via the exchange programs. However, the Student Exchange Coordinator would be happy to assist you in the application process and contacts with the host institutions. Tuition of summer programs varies across institutions, and can be quite costly.

We believe this gives the students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding in the chosen field of study by focusing in these areas of engineering. Although it is not a requirement, this programme will be most useful to undergraduate students with an interest or previous knowledge in Mechanical Engineering. Students studying in similar subject areas within the field of Engineering and Sciences are of course also welcome to apply.

Costs:

The total costs are € 2,200.
The application Deadline is 15 March 2019.

The programme costs cover: engineering courses, workshops, company visits, language courses, intercultural competence training, course materials, social activities and excursions, ticket for public transportation, insurances, student services and accommodation (excl. breakfast) in two-person rooms with a kitchenette. However, travelling and living expenses will need to be covered by the participants.
