International opportunities

The programmes organized by DCSC offer several options for students to study abroad. These include opportunities to do internships, to follow courses as an exchange student, or to do an MSc project with an international industrial partner.

Recent examples include an MSc project on the subject of atomic force microscopes, performed within Veeco (USA), an MSc project on Hybrid Systems at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), and an MSc project on automotive steer-by-wire technology with SKF in France. Students have also completed between 12 and 20 EC of coursework at the University of Nantes in France and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden, among others.

Through its teachers, PhD students and other temporary staff, DCSC maintains a strong international network with contacts in many leading industries and research institutes.

About 30% of the MSc students at DCSC have an international background.
