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.
