The aim of enGlobe is to increase the international visibility of Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI), to expand mobility and digital consulting services, to intensify cooperation with domestic and foreign practice partners, and to consolidate strategic university and practice partnerships. Internationalisation is institutionally anchored within the THI as a management task, there is already an above-average proportion of graduates with international experience. Nevertheless, there are areas in which the THI can develop further - such as the proportion of foreign academics at the THI, outgoings in Bachelor's degree programmes in engineering sciences and the mobility of teaching staff.
Measures within the project include digital application-oriented student projects between the THI and partner universities and partner companies in Brazil, Argentina and the USA. In addition, the THI intends to further promote the exchange of students and professors through so-called "Mini Autumn Schools" at the international partner universities. In return, regular guest lectures by professors from Brazil, Argentina and the USA will be offered at the THI.
In order to enable future engineers to spend longer periods abroad, the THI offers them scholarships for theses or internships at the practice partners in America. In return, Brazilian master's and doctoral students are offered the opportunity to write their theses or complete research internships at the CARISSMA Research and Test Centre and other THI research areas. The exchange of administrative staff at THI is also made possible by a mobility programme.
