Program outline

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

Natural Science and Engineering students will be fully integrated within their designated institute. During the program, students will be introduced to German science & engineering at university and industrial level. Students will visit world known companies -based in Hannover and its region- for example VW Nutzfahrzeuge, Sennheiser, or Lenze Electric.

At the beginning of their research stay students will learn the basic principles of their designated research project and will continue working self-dependently under the supervision of experienced scientists.

At the end of program students are expected to give a presentation and, upon request, a project thesis may have to be written for further scientific use.

Before arrival, students will get matched with a German study buddy to help finding their way.
