IAESTE


The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience, IAESTE, is a worldwide network that organises paid, course-related traineeships for students and recent graduates of technical subjects such as Engineering, Science, and IT. Traineeships are offered by a huge variety of employers, ranging from multinational companies to university research departments to start-up enterprises. The programme was established in 1947, operates in 87 countries worldwide and has approximately 4,000 international participants each year. IAESTE aims to enhance participants’ professional, technical and intercultural skills while providing employers with well-qualified and highly motivated trainees. IAESTE is based on mutual exchange, so every country both sends trainees abroad and hosts trainees thanks to local employers.

All IAESTE countries have a national office to coordinate the programme and liaise with employers and trainees. The majority of countries also have a wide support network of local volunteers who help trainees settle into and explore their host countries. In Ireland, IAESTE works with diverse employers including Trinity College Dublin, SAP, Ericsson, and Threefold. We host trainees from all over the world every year, and as a result Irish students from almost every third- level institution in the country have taken up traineeships abroad.
