Summer Research Program with Yale

Following the success of the MIT-UCLouvain student visiting program, the Louvain School of Engineering has sought to broaden its collaboration on the American East coast to include yet another university of excellence: YALE.

The dynamic of the program remains the same; i.e. to allow qualified candidates from each university to advance both their studies and global competencies with HANDS-ON-INTERNSHIPS overseas.
Each summer,Yale students will be able to complete an internship in a lab linked to the Louvain School of Engineering, in one of the following research institutes:

Or in a Belgian company partner of UCLouvain on the Science Park. Although some students may choose this program to improve their French proficiency, knowledge of French is not a prerequisite to participating in this exchange.The focus is really on the opportunity to offer students at the Bachelor's and Master's level an enriching experience.

After the 2-year pilot phase of this programme, a longer term agreement with Yale will allow up to 5 Yale students to be hosted in Louvain-la-Neuve and 5 UCLouvain students to be sent to New Heaven as from summer 2021. We look forward to continuing this new collaboration with Yale!
