Program outline

The Science & Engineering Research Projects program provides students with a unique opportunity to obtain practical scientific knowledge by being a part of a professional research team at Leibniz University Hannover, Germany (LUH).

Science and Engineering students are fully integrated within their designated institute. During the program, students are introduced to German science & engineering within the university and in an industrial environment. Students will visit international known companies based in Hannover and its region, for example VW Nutzfahrzeuge (VW Utility Vehicles), Sennheiser, or Lenze Electric.

At the beginning of their research stay students are introduced to the basic principles of their designated research project and will then continue to work independently supervised by experienced scientists.

Students will give a presentation at the end of their stay. Upon request, a project thesis may have to be written for further scientific use.

Before arrival, students are matched with a German study buddy who will lend assistance, especially upon arrival and th first few days in Germany.
