The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience



IAESTE TUL   provides traineeships for students of Lodz University Technology including PhD students.

IAESTE TUL provides 30-40% of global polish IAESTE exchange and probably is the biggest Local Committee in the world  (http://65th.iaeste.org/news/sci-in-probably-the-biggest-exchange-lc-in-the-world-of-iaeste/)

Mission of IAESTE is to operate a high quality practical training exchange program between Members in order to enhance technical and professional development and to promote international understanding and goodwill amongst students, academic institutions, employers and the wider community. IAESTE operates irrespective of race, colour, sex or creed.

Through the IAESTE exchange program students may secure training abroad, usually for periods up to 12 weeks in the summer time. and may be taken in ‘one to one’. This means one internship at home is exchanged for another abroad.

All fields of study where practical experience is an essential adjunct to the study course are included in the IAESTE exchange. IAESTE training placements are available in industrial and commercial Organisations, Research Institutes, Laboratories and Academic Institutions, covering a wide range of disciplines.

Students then apply in their home countries where the most qualified candidate is selected and their nomination is sent to the receiving country which then forwards it to the Employer, who has the opportunity to accept the candidate.

Once the candidate is accepted, the receiving country works with the sending country to ensure that the student has all the necessary permits and/or visas to go abroad and undergo the traineeship.

Students can obtain paid practical experience in their field, make professional contacts - the building blocks of tomorrow's world - and participate in organised leisure time activities and excursions with IAESTE all over the world, being supported with practical arrangements (i.e. work permits, visas and accommodation).
