IAESTE recognizes the long standing support of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture with award

(02-03-2020) IAESTE presented this award to Ghent University's Faculty of Engineering and Architecture for their ongoing contribution to IAESTE by actively promoting the exchange programme and providing traineeships for international students over 20 years.

Four members of IAESTE Belgium attended the IAESTE Annual Conference in Tatranska Lomnica, Slovakia. There, 76 internship offers in Belgium were exchanged for technical internships abroad for our students, in more than 35 countries worldwide. That means that 76 students will get the opportunity to go abroad for a technical internship. 

IAESTE Belgium also received 7 employer awards, for employers that have been offering placements for at least 5 years. The biggest award, for a cooperation of over 20 years, went to our very own Faculty of Engineering and Architecture, Ghent University. Our faculty also hosts the National Office of IAESTE Belgium and is the most active member in the Belgian branch.
