UROP International

Body: 

The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program at RWTH Aachen University fosters research partnerships between qualified undergraduates from top US and Canadian universities and research faculty at our university. The program is specifically designed for students who wish to attain hands-on experience in fundamental research at one of the top universities of science and technology worldwide. The program‘s duration is ten weeks. The first two weeks are dedicated to an intensive German language course and an introduction to research and culture. Weeks 3 to 10 are settled around the research internship in one of the departments of RWTH Aachen University. UROP International offers undergraduate students the unique chance to conduct their own research project, thus actively experiencing what research is like at an early stage of their academic career. While pursuing their projects, students are mentored and supervised by the excellent research staff of the host institute at RWTH Aachen University. Besides obtaining research experience, the students participate in German language training and workshops on intercultural and research-related issues. Leisure activities complete their international experience in Germany. Due to the huge success of the UROP International program, RWTH is doubling the number of research placements available. Now 60 students can take part in the program!
