I participated to the exchange with LG Krakow in April 2015. Guided by a group of Polish ESTIEMers we visited Auschwitz, Krakow and the amazing Salt mines. We've savored our short stay like polish students would do, having typical meals at 5PM, BBQ at university campus and spending nights in local pubs! I will never forget the last night when we had a party all together at the terrace of an historic building in the central square of the city. The view was amazing! It would have never happened if I were on a trip on my own.Edoardo
I participated to a 6 academic days event organised by LG Bremen. The main theme tackled was wind energy and its future development. We were given specific insights about what is going on in Europe and Germany regarding the issue. We have been exposed to real life esperiences such as having a meeting with a managing director of a project development company. We also visited a wind farm! On the other hand, the nights were characterised by leisure activities, out of which I would highlight for sure the last night where we enjoyed the university summer party which was just insane! Sure a superlative and unique experience I would recommend to anyone.Michele
My team and I participated at the event TIMES, a competition where eight teams had to deliver a solution to a case study that was evaluated by a pool of professors. The competition was very challenging and intense. We had the chance to implement most of the skills that we gained in our lectures. The task that they gave was interesting and needed a lot of patience and analytical and problem solving skills. I can say we totally had fun, even if the competition was tough. We are very eager to participate in the next year as well.Prashanth
