Since 2011 every year in December, a team of students from the University of Applied Sciences Schmalkalden organizes the International Engineering Week with many exciting lectures, given by International Professors, from all fields of engineering, Workshops and numerous events. Meanwhile, you can improve your English skills and have the opportunity to earn 2,5 ECTS trough the optional exam at the end of the week.

The portfolio of events includes the full range of technical topics. The main goal is to offer all participants a lot of new impressions, practical knowledge and a pleasing atmosphere for international networking.

Because we care about our students, Professors and guests, we've decided to do this years IEW a little bit different! So we present you the International Engineering Week 2020 - Virtual Edition!

From 7th to 11th of December we have planned a very awesome Week for you in an online Version.

So save the date and please also register on StudIP to take part of this years IEW.
