Summer schools

The TU/e graduate school encourages students to gain at least 15 ECTS credits abroad as part of their TU/e study program. This international experience can be obtained through a study semester or  (research or company) internship abroad, or by attending a combination of workshops or summer schools. To make it easier for our students to find a suitable internship, summer school or workshop, we, as study association CHEOPS have introduced a page on our website on which these kind of announcements are bundled.

More information on international experiences is available in the TU/e study guide: https://studiegids.tue.nl/verbreding/buitenland-en-stages/   For additional  information students can contact the departmental international office (e-mail: h.a.m.houben@tue.nl).
