In today's global automotive industry, experience of working as an engineer in another country is extremely valuable. When it comes to applying the scientific knowledge learned in the lecture theatre, there is no substitute for experience: real vehicles, real people and real problems to solve.
FISITA offers student engineers the opportunity to apply for a travel bursary, of up to €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.
To be eligible to apply for FISITA Travel Bursary, you must:
1. be studying engineering at undergraduate or postgraduate level at a recognised college or university
2. have arranged an industry or research placement in an automotive company or organisation overseas
3. be a member of a FISITA member society
