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).

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 the university and industrial level. Students will visit internationally 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 be introduced to the basic principles of their designated research project and will continue working independently under the supervision of 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 will get matched with a German study buddy to help find their way.
