UAS7 is an alliance of seven leading German universities of applied sciences (UAS) in Germany, recognized for their excellence in teaching, their strong professional and international orientation, and their focus on applied research. Research at UAS7 member campuses is application-oriented and typically geared towards the needs of regional business and industry.
Job Title: Research Co-op
Job Description: Details depend on specific co-op/research assignment. Under the direction of a faculty supervisor, the student will work as part of a team in a research laboratory on a UAS7 campus. These co-ops are appropriate for students with a strong interest in applied research.
The Internship Program (IP) is designed for students interested in hands-on research opportunities at a German University of Applied Sciences. Internships offered by UAS7 member faculty allow IP participants to work alongside teams in our campus research laboratories and institutes. In most cases academic credit can be issued for successfully completed internships upon request; appropriate documentation can also be provided for interns seeking co-op rather than academic credit at their home institutions.
Applicants must rank 1-3 projects that they are interested in being considered for. Ranking more than one project increases the chances of acceptance, but applicants should only rank projects that they feel they meet the specified qualifications for.
The research internships have a duration of 2-6 months. The exact length and timing of your research internship is determined by the professor offering the internship, but in many cases there is some room for flexibility. See project descriptions for scheduling options at the internship(s) you are interested in.
Required Job Skills: Depends on specific position. In general, laboratory experience (including classroom) is preferred.
Number of Positions: Numerous
GPA Requirement: Applicants with a GPA of 3.0 or higher will be the most competitive. This is a competitive program.
Language Requirement: German language is an advantage but not required.
Application Process and Materials: You must apply via Drexel and UAS7's site and process. Please review:
Compensation: Some applicants will be awarded a UAS7 Travel Scholarship, which includes a 1000 EUR stipend for transatlantic travel expenses. In some instances, additional compensation in the form of a monthly stipend may be available, but in most cases co-ops are unpaid.
Financial Award: Students will be considered for a financial award from Steinbright
Housing: The International Office at the UAS campus will provide assistance in locating housing, either on or off-campus. On-campus housing is not guaranteed.
Visa Requirement: UAS7 will provide supporting documentation and advice to successful applicants for the visa application process. The visa application and all associated costs (fees, travel to consulate) are the student's responsibility.Resources:
