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.

TU Darmstadt – International Summer University 2019

International Summer University: German Engineering and Language programme

The Summer University programme invites Undergraduate students from Engineering Degree programmes to explore German Engineering and to get an insight into the German language and culture.

The International Summer University consists of four components:

  1. Engineering Courses (Automotive Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering and Production Engineering), Workshops and Excursions to German companies.
  2. Intensive German Language Courses on A1, A2 and B1 level
  3. Intercultural Competence Training on Working and Studying in Germany.
  4. Social and Cultural Programmes as well as Excursions in and around the Hessen region.

Courses:

The 2019 programme will hold different modules where students will have the opportunity to choose aerospace or automotive engineering courses in the first two weeks and then continue the last two weeks with production or mechatronic engineering courses. 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.

Credits:

Participants may obtain 9 credit points of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), which accounts for 4.5 US / Canadian credit points.
