The REACH program is an International Research Exchange Program (REACH). Princeton University partners with three German Ruhr universities: Ruhr University Bochum, University of Duisburg-Essen and TU Dortmund) and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and ASTRI, a Hong Kong government sponsored research center.
The mission of the REACH program is to offer students on both sides an eight-week, hands-on research internship in an international context. Participating students will be immersed in a new culture while working on a research project in their field of study. The program aims to broaden students’ perspectives and enable them to become globally minded researchers and technologists. In total, twelve Princeton engineering students (excluding seniors) will be abroad to participate in this program with eight being sent to Germany and four to Hong Kong. In exchange, Princeton will host international engineering students at Princeton during the summer.
