European Project Semester outgoing

EPS logo 260

Eu­ro­pean Project Se­mes­ter is a pro­gramme of­fered by 17 Eu­ro­pean uni­ver­si­ties in 12 coun­tries through­out Eu­rope to stu­dents who have com­pleted at least two years of study. EPS is cre­ated with en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents in mind, but other stu­dents who can par­tic­i­pate in an en­gi­neer­ing project are also welcome.

The programme is crafted to ad­dress the de­sign re­quire­ments of the de­gree and pre­pare en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents with all the nec­es­sary skills to face the chal­lenges of today’s world econ­omy. EPS is a mix­ture of “Project Re­lated Courses” and project organized/​problem based learn­ing. Stu­dents work in in­ter­na­tional and usu­ally in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary teams of 3–6 stu­dents on their projects, and most of the projects are in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary. Some projects are done in co­op­er­a­tion with com­mer­cial busi­nesses and in­dus­tries, other projects are more aca­d­e­mic. Stu­dents learn to learn and to take re­spon­s­abil­ity for their learn­ing and their project work and they de­velop their in­ter­cul­tural com­pe­tences, their com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and their in­ter­per­sonal skills.

The department of Engineering encourage our students to participate in this programme as it is unique and offers the opportunity to work in an international, multicultural and interdisciplinary atmosphere similar to most companies today. At EPS it is important that students have a solid academic background and should therefore have completed at least 4 semesters.
