Do you want to come to study at the EETAC?
If you are reading this section, it is likely you are thinking of spending part of your studies abroad. This may be difficult decision to make, and it may be even more difficult to choose the country and the school. However, for sure, this is the best period of your life for doing it, there are lots of universities with similar educational programs, more facilities than ever before for getting scholarships and covering travel expenses... Don't doubt, this is an experience you will never forget.
There are plenty of personal benefits; obvious ones like broadening ones horizons, immersing oneself in a foreign culture, learning a new language, new viewpoints and methods of teaching, new friendships... And others like increased self-reliance, self-assurance, maturity, adaptability and increased employability. Mobility is an excellent medicine against shyness, intolerance, racism... and is highly addictive!. Most students that travel during their Bachelors degrees repeat the experience for their Masters degrees.
We encourage our students to spend part of their studies at universities abroad, especially in European countries. This is usually accomplished through institutional Student Exchange Agreements which can be arranged in very short time and with little paperwork. Students stay at least one semester and usually extend their stay to a full academic year.
EETAC is open to host foreign students at bachelor and masters degrees. You can choose whether to take some courses with us or prepare your Diploma or Master Thesis in our research labs under the direction of EETAC professors. You can also choose both options, that is, finish your courses while elaborating your Thesis.
EETAC participates in several universities consortiums such as CLUSTER, CINDA, CAESAR, orientated to provide "High Quality" Engineering Education and improve links between Engineering schools and universities. There are several official exchange programmes which offer scholarships, for example: Erasmus Studies, Erasmus Training, UPC-Europe, UPC-America Latina, UNITECH, etc
If your institution is not one of those in the lists, but you are interested in joining us for a period, please send an email to EETAC.firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the receipt of your application form, you will receive an Incoming Student Manual from the International Education Office at the EETAC, containing useful information about, for example, accommodation facilities, amongst other things.
There is an EETAC Orientation Programme for Incoming Students, which introduces the services available at the school, academic issues, students associations, sport facilities, cultural life and entertainment, etc. As a part of this, there is a mentorship programme to ensure that foreign students have a smooth integration into the EETAC.
Hope to see you at EETAC!
