The Local Committee of IAESTE Munich provides technical internships abroad primarily for students of the Munich universities in all technical and scientific disciplines. In addition, we also like to students from universities in the immediate vicinity of Munich without its own IAESTE representative (eg, Deggendorf, Ingolstadt, Landshut, Rosenheim, ...). There are places in both the industry and at research institutes. Most IAESTE internships last 2-3 months, and often take place in the summer months. The internships are usually paid, the credit is calculated according to the typical cost of living. The IAESTE local committee of the host country responsible for the trainees to find accommodation and carry out all necessary formalities. This service is free for enrolled students in Germany. This is made possible by the inclusion of the IAESTE program in the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
