Research Internship Program (REACH)

The Research Internship Exchange Program is intended to provide an intensive research & cross-cultural learning experience for American students from REACH partner institutions at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) in Germany, and for students from the Ruhr-Universität at partner universities in the United States. The program is designed for students in science and engineering. At the end of their internship students will have acquired valuable laboratory and research experience relevant to their field of study, and also have had the opportunity to work systematically in a cross-cultural team, thereby developing their international skills and contacts.

Partners in REACH 2009 and 2010 were the University of Pennsylvania and Princeton University.

You are a student of RUB interested in participating?
