The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) is an independent, non-profit and non-political student exchange organisation. It provides students in technical degrees (primarily Science, Engineering and the applied arts) with paid, course-related, training abroad and employers with highly skilled, highly motivated trainees, for long or short term project.
Work. Experience. Discover.
Volunteering with IAESTE can be a rewarding experience. Many IAESTE national committees are run by students, as well as the hundreds of local committees that support their work. By getting involved you can develop new skills, organisational, managerial, financial, social, and most importantly, you can make new friends and be a part of something special.
If you’d like to get involved please contact your national committee. They will let you know what opportunities are available and connect you with a local committee if there is one. Although volunteering for IAESTE doesn’t guarantee you an internship, it certainly doesn’t hurt!
In many countries IAESTE is organised by student volunteers and members. There are many benefits to joining IAESTE as a member or volunteer, including:
- Improving cross-cultural understanding – a must in today’s global marketplace
- Learning management, organisation and leadership skills
- Networking opportunities with IAESTE alumni and friends from around the world
- Filling your summer with exciting international events
- Accessing a network of technical students and professionals, your future colleagues
For more information on joining us please contact the IAESTE committee in your home country.
