IAESTE LC Darmstadt

Who we are and what we do

The IAESTE local committee Darmstadt assists students in the Darmstadt metropolitan area (students of the TU, h_da and EFH Darmstadt), who wish to complete an internship abroad and also assists foreign students who are completing an IAESTE-organized internship in Darmstadt.

We are the representation of the Non-Profit Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience in Darmstadt. Currently we are a team of 10 people who take care of incoming, outgoing, finances and public relations. We are always looking for new volunteers! You can find more information at the Volunteering-Subpage.

What is IAESTE?

General information about the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience is an international, nonpolitical, independent organization organizing internships abroad.

IAESTE was founded in 1948 in London and has so far sent more than 300.000 students to over 85 countries. Germany is a member of the IAESTE program since 1950. It is represented by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

In every member country there is a national committee (NC) and several local committees (LC) at the universities. In Germany the national committee is represented by a department of the Deutschen Akademischen Austauschdientes (DAAD) repräsentiert. IAESTE wird durch das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Wissenschaft sowie das Auswärtige Amt unterstützt. Vor Ort werden die Lokalkomitees von engagierten Student*innen der jeweiligen Hochschulen gebildet. Wo dies nicht möglich ist, nehmen die Akademischen Auslandsämter die Aufgaben von IAESTE wahr.
