IAESTE is an independent, international association that is neither puplicly nor politicly bound. Aims of IAESTE are to provide students in higher education with technical experience relevant to their studies, to be a source of cultural enrichment for trainees and their host communities and to promote the international understanding.
The work of the local comitee in Munich, whose members are students working voluntarily, consists on the one hand of the distribution of internships abroad to students of the Technical University of Munich (Outgoing), and on the other hand to support IAESTE Trainees coming from abroad to do an internship in Munich (Incoming). There are many other tasks for the members of the local committee Munich. This includes the organization of trips, the support of the website or managing the finances.
