REACH International Summer Research Exchange Program

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 (HKUST) and the Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (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.
