Welcome to our homepage!
We are the Karlsruhe local commitee of IAESTE, the world's biggest trainee exchange organisation for students of engineering, science, agriculture and forestry. Germany is a member of IAESTE since 1950 and is one of the biggest exchange nations, with a 1000 German students staying abroad every year and over 1200 foreign trainees coming into the country in exchange.
Beyond the actual traineeship, IAESTE provides accomodation in the destination country and offers a cultural program in most countries. The local committees, which are run by students, take care of the foreign students and do the basic paperwork.
If you would like to do an IAESTE traineeship in Germany or in any other member country, you should contact the local/national committee in your city/country. Visit the international IAESTE website to find their contact information.
If you have done all that and you know you are coming to Karlsruhe, well, welcome! You can browse these pages to get a preview of Karlsruhe. Also, please contact us via email as soon as possible so we can greet you when you arrive here.
