The concept of the KIT was one of three university projects, which prevailed among the eight winners of the competition "MINTernational innovative". At the end of June, the universities were invited to present their ideas for more internationality in the subjects Mathematics, Science, Technology, Engenieering and Mathematics (STEM) to a jury. Members were representatives from scientific institutions and sponsors as well as the business community. They selected the concepts with the highest degree of innovation. The funding is intended to specifically develop the respective project idea, extend it to other subjects and be taken over by other universities.
Dr. Kai Rebensburg, who supervises the student exchange program MINTernship at KIT, and Andreas Sexauer (photo above) from the Center for Medial Learning (ZML) at KIT, developed in cooperation with Ulrich Weiß from SCC and Dr. med. Sebastian Stüker from the Institute of Anthropomatics and Robotics (IAR) a strategy that makes it easier for foreign students to successfully complete their studies. Among the innovative measures is the technical simultaneous translation of the lectures in German into other languages, which should counteract the language barriers. With their joint presentation at the Stifterverband in Berlin, they convinced the jury.
