International MINTernship Program

MINTernship

To address the shortage of skilled labor in STEM (MINT in German) subjects, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) initiated the International MINTernship program. As part of the program, students and doctoral candidates from selected partner universities can pursue internships of up to six-months in companies in Baden-Württemberg or research internships at KIT. In addition, the program offers research internships funded by scholarships at partner universities abroad.

 

Goal

The aim of the program is to establish exchange and internship programs in English-speaking countries attractive for junior scientists. For students and doctoral candidates from KIT the study or research stays at the partner universities are exempted from tuition fees and funded through grants.

 

Partner universities

University of Waterloo – Canada

Since 1957, the University of Waterloo (UWaterloo) has been producing some of Canada’s most innovative leaders and has created an outstanding educational reputation recognized around the world. UWaterloo offers a variety of programs within its six faculties – Applied Health Sciences, Arts, Engineering, Environment, Mathematics, and Science.

 

Queensland University of Technology - Australia

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a highly successful Australian university with an applied emphasis in courses and research. While QUT is based in Brisbane, Queensland, it has a global outlook. With some 45,000 students, including 6,000 from overseas, and an annual budget of more than $800 million, QUT is positioned to grow and develop as one of Australia's leading universities.
