Academic exchange between UFSC and THI

eng.join! is a DAAD-funded project at the Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI), which aims to build a lasting bridge between the Bachelor's degree programs of the Faculty of Mobility Engineering of the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) and THI's Engineering and Management program.

THI awards each 3 scholarships to

- THI students of the Engineering and Management program for a stay abroad at UFSC (Joinville, Brazil) from March-July 2023 and 2024 (4.5 months).

- UFSC students of the Mobility Engineering Faculty for a stay at THI from October 2022/2023 until February 2023/2024 (5 months).

This new AWARE project also enables the exchange of professors who teach in the courses.
