Are you interested in a stay abroad?
About one third of the students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering spend one semester abroad during their studies. A large part of them use the ERASMUS+ programme and the numerous cooperation partners in Europe and worldwide for this purpose. The ERASMUS programme of the European Union promotes study visits abroad by students between EU countries and partner countries. A stay abroad here lasts at least one to two semesters. There is also the possibility of financial support through the programme. Students are also exempted from paying tuition fees abroad.
