International Study and Education Partnerships: USA, Australia and Mexico
At the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, various institutes have entered into cooperation agreements with US, Australian and Mexican universities to facilitate student exchanges. As a rule, no tuition fees are due at the host university and financial support through the DAAD ISAP program is possible in some cases. The exchange places are primarily (but not exclusively) for students of the subject area represented by the respective institute.
The following partnerships currently exist within the ISAP programe in Faculty 4:
Institute of Plastics Processing - University of Wisconsin Madison:
Up to three Master students can study at the UW Madison each year through the partnership of the IKV. The exchange is designed for two semesters; the main aim is to take examinations at the partner university. The application deadline is always in autumn for the winter semester of the following year. All further information can be found on the IKV website.
Aachen Process Engineering - Carnegie Mellon University:
Up to three advanced Bachelor students are allowed to study at the CMU for ten months each year through AVT's partnership. Written exams and project work can be written at the CMU. The application deadline is always the end of the second week of January for the winter semester coming up. All further information can be found on this website.
Chair of Technical Thermodynamics - University of California Davis:
Every year, the LTT offers up to three students the opportunity to study for nine months at UC Davis and to write a scientific paper in addition to exams. The programe is aimed at Bachelor's in 3rd and 5th semester. The application deadline is always the end of the second week of January for the winter semester of the following year. All further information can be found on this website.
Institute of Textile Technology - Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology:
Every year, up to four bachelor's students from the sixth semester or master's students may study one semester at RMIT in order to take exams there. The application deadline is 31.07. All further information can be found on this website.
Institute of General Mechanics - Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey:
Every year, up to 6 students are offered the chance to attend courses and work on scientific research projects (project or bachelor thesis) at ITESM. The exchange is financially supported for two semesters and addresses bachelor students, enrolled in Mechanical Engineering, Business Administration and Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) and Computational Engineering Science. The ideal application period is the 3rd semester at RWTH. All further information can be found on this website.
