FISITA is one of the world's leading advocates for the education of future automotive engineers. In today's global automotive industry, experience of working as an engineer in another country is extremely valuable.
FISITA offers student engineers the opportunity to apply for a travel bursary, of up to EUR 2000, to help with the costs of taking part in organised work placements (internships, exchange programmes, work placements etc.) in automotive companies and research institutions overseas.
These types of work experience can be life-changing and can lead to permanent jobs after graduation. They also allow students to make new friendships, develop professional contacts and gain invaluable experience in an ever-evolving and exciting industry.
