European Project Semester (EPS) is a one-semester programme designed to train mainly third year engineering and technology students to carry out project work in international teams. The value of working in an international environment and at the same time improving your English language skills cannot be overestimated in today’s global economy.
This programme is designed for third year engineering and technology students. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the project, students with other educational background may also apply (e.g. Industrial Design Engineering, Architecture, International Marketing, Business and Administration).
Proficiency in English is required.
How to apply
International exchange students select courses when applying for exchange.
