Who are we?
The AK GEARE (Arbeitskreis GEARE) is a registered student association at the KIT in Germany. Most of the members are former GEARE exchange students of the IPEK (Institut für Produktentwicklung). Our aim is to help the GEARE students who are leaving for a foreign country or those coming to Germany by providing documentation and general help in the organization.
What's the GEARE program?
GEARE (Global Engineering Alliance for Research and Education) is a worldwide exchange program for college students. GEARE students attend classes in a partner university and are given the possibility to do an internship in the exchange country.
Students from the Karlsruher Institut for Technolgy majoring in mechanical engineering may apply for an exchange with the Purdue University (Indiana, USA) or the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China). Both programs include an internship abroad.
