The International Summer Program offers you the opportunity to undertake a research project in addition to or instead of the track specific courses. When opting for a research project, you are still welcome to join the German language class and the cultural program.
You can participate in a scientific project along with Dortmund Ph.D. students and professors, which gives you the chance to work systematically in a cross-cultural team and to develop your international skills.
If you choose to participate in a research project, you are supposed to work on a topic from a chosen area of your interest. If you are interested in doing a part-time research project as well as attending courses, this can be organized.
If you have a special topic you would like to work on, please check TU Dortmund University's website for a chair and their respective junior researcher who is working in your area of interest. However, please note that we cannot guarantee the willingness of each researcher for leading a project.
You can undertake a part-time or full-time research project with a specialist in your area of interest. For further information please contact Christina Neuhaus.
In the online application form, please indicate that you would like to do a research project and in what specific field.
You will be informed about your admission to the ISP until mid-March 2016. Afterwards we will find a suitable project for you and organize the contact between you and your project supervisor until mid-April 2016.
