The GET Program
A multidisciplinary intercultural team of four students works on a project formulated by an industrial partner. Each team is supervised by an experienced advisor and supported by internationally recognized university professors.
Standard university courses rarely provide the competencies required for global team work. In today’s world, engineers are not only required to have state-of-the-art technical knowledge, but also to apply it in global teams. Engineers have to work with colleagues, suppliers, and clients from different cultural backgrounds, operate as part of a team, and master the challenges of virtual cooperation in industrial engineering tasks.
Companies rarely provide training programs for these skills. Therefore, engineers required to learn global team work to succeed in their career. Without proper coaching, this can takes years of experience, making work inefficient. The GET course aims at providing students with these capacities while offering sponsors a qualitative solution to their problematics.
Projects in the following areas are possible:
- Product development
- Process development
- Experimental analysis
