About the IAESTE Internship Program
The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) is an internship exchange organization that matches science, technology, engineering and mathematics students in over 80 participating countries with paid work experience abroad, most often in the form of scientific research or industrial internships. Most placements are for 8-12 weeks during the summer, but fall and longer-term placements are also available.
