Enabling students in engineering sciences the perfect career kickoff - that is the objective of the UNITECH International program. As one of many opportunities, the partner company ZF offers students the chance to complete an internship abroad.
The UNITECH network consists of eight European partner universities and around twenty partner companies, including ZF. Participants of the program may be students enrolled at a partner university in engineering sciences. UNITECH partner universities amongst others are RWTH Aachen University , ETH Zürich , Delft University of Technology and Politecnico di Milano .
UNITECH International enables students to study abroad for a minimum of one semester at one of the program's international partner universities. The participants are able to gain important experience there and exchange their knowledge with future engineers from other countries. In addition, students complete a three to six-month internship abroad at one of the UNITECH partner companies. As a result, they are exposed to work at an international company and are able to establish contact with a potential future employer. As a partner company, ZF suggests participating students for internships abroad at international ZF locations and presents itself at the program's partner universities. Additionally, ZF employees are involved in the regularly held meetings where students and representatives of the partner companies meet. Here, in presentations, case studies, discussions, and interviews, tomorrow's engineers can demonstrate their competence to their potential future employer ZF.
