International Design Project
Engineering students of Leibniz Universität Hannover who want to improve their knowledge of technical English, realise a technical idea from scratch, experience work in an international team and visit one of the most beautiful cities have now an opportunity to participate in the International Design Project 2016 within the programme “Strategic Partnership” with Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. During the project the students from both universities will develop in interdisciplinary teams a concept for a new product, design and manufacture it. They will get input and support from the specialists from St.Petersburg and Hannover (Dr. Thomas Jambor from the Centre for the Didactics of Engineering and Mr. Christopher Tidy from the Centre for Applied Linguistics and Special Languages).
The first part of the project will take place during the school of FabLab from 4.-11. April in St.Peterburg. The presentation of the project results will take place in Hannover in June.
The shortlisted candidates will receive a travel and accommodation grant for the trip to St.Petersburg.
To apply, please send a letter of motivation in English, a copy of your travelling passport and a copy of your current transcript of records by 15. February to christopher.tidyfsz.uni-hannover.de
The first organisational meeting will take place on 18. February 16:00.
