Students and faculty may also be interested in the DAAD RISE Professional Program, which provides internship placements in Germany for students in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Sciences and Engineering (or closely related subjects). Students will have the opportunity to live and work in an international context, to gain confidence in their practical and professional skills, and to improve their German. As well, the internships are a source of mutual cultural and professional enrichment for both the interns and their host companies.
