FST Exchange Program Expanding

Since 2006 FST has been running a student exchange with overseas universities, starting with Germany and students from the Department of Computer and Information Science. In the first semester of the 2008/2009 academic year this exchange has been expanding in number: 4 outgoing and 4 incoming exchange students; expanding to more countries: besides Germany also Brazil and China; as well as expanding to the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

For the first time FST received two students from the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS), Germany who studied electrical and electronic engineering for one semester. Also a first was the participation in the FST student exchange by one student from Universidade de Blumenau (FURB), Brazil who also studied in the same major. A student of Environmental Science from Fudan University (FU), China completed a semester of studies in civil and environmental engineering at FST, and FU will send one more exchange student in the second semester of 2008/2009.
