The Academy of ICT and Media welcomes students from partner universities around the world to its International Semester. During this semester, students broaden their knowledge of ICT by addressing the international aspects of the subject. With both Dutch and foreign students from several countries, the program is truly international in both teaching and participants.
The International Semester consists of a practical assignment and theoretical schooling. During the theoretical part, workshops and lectures prepare students for the practical assignment. The students also have the chance to consult experts.
In addition to the theoretical education, students put theory into practice in a practical assignment carried out in groups of 4 to 6 students. The project has an innovative and international character and public relevance. Dutch international business has a prominent position. Possible subjects include: information dissemination during disasters, water management, data processing in developing countries or information security management. Each project includes carrying out a feasibility study and software development. A coach supervises each project group.
Students of the Academy for ICT & Media will be involved in setting up a social and cultural program for the visiting students. The students association for international students (Inter Access) and the study association for the students of ICT & Media (SIM) will also carry out some parts of the social and cultural program. The program will include some site visits of major ICT projects. We will study the use of ICT in, for example: the harbor of Rotterdam (logistics), flower auction (Aalsmeer) and the Delta works.
The program starts every half-year, in February and September. At least 12 participants are required for the program to take place.
