The UNITECH mobility programme is designed for high-achieving engineering students who also have the ability to lead, be proactive, communicate effectively, work in a team and other cross-disciplinary competencies. The programme is carried out within the framework of the UNITECH network.

The programme consists of:

  1. An exchange with one of the universities in the UNITECH network. During the exchange, participants must combine technical courses with economics and business courses.
  2. An internship at one of the UNITECH businesses.
  3. Three compulsory sessions of activities and workshops in which personal skills, group work abilities and other competencies are developed.

The UNITECH programme requires an academic exchange and an internship. Its average, and desired, duration is one year.

To complete the UNITECH programme:

  • Students must pass a minimum of 20 ECTS credits in the academic exchange.
  • The internship must be equivalent to a minimum of 30 ECTS credits. (2.5 credits=1 week of internship; therefore, a minimum of 12 weeks of internship.)
