Outgoing students

If you wish to study abroad you have plenty of opportunities.  

Internship & graduation project abroad

You can do your internship and/or graduation project outside of the Netherlands. A good starting point for arranging this at a great many of universities, research institutions and companies abroad is the network of the EE staff and EE research groups. Many of our staff have excellent connections with researchers and companies abroad. If you are interested in going abroad for your internship and/or graduation project talk to your graduation supervisor about the possibilities. 

Please visit this website to learn more about the application process (via Mobility Online) for an outgoing internship and/or project. 

It is very important that whenever you receive a contract for an international internship or graduation, to send the contract to the International Office EE before signing the contract. The International Office EE will help you with checking the (legal) contents and will make sure the contract is signed by the right persons within the EE department.  

Courses abroad

You can also go abroad for elective courses. You could for instance combine an internship at a university with a couple of elective courses at the same university. If you are interested in going abroad for courses talk to your mentor about the possibilities. 

Please visit this website to learn more about the application process (via Mobility Online) for outgoing courses. 

International partners

There are many bilateral agreements with ERASMUS partners in Europe (in countries such as Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK).  

The TU/e also has an agreement with the National University of Singapore to exchange some 10-12 students per year. For the EE department one student is eligible for this exchange in the 2nd semester.  

Language

Wherever you go, speaking the local language enhances your international experience. Take the time to work on this. The Language Center (CLIC) at the TU/e has many facilities to help you with this.
