How to apply?
Send the following documents:
Your motivation letter should tell us:
Students are selected based on their motivation, interest in the project and profile fit to the project- mainly to the company assignments. Suitable candidates are invited for personal interview to assess how well they are prepared to participate in the project. After interviews, the committee chooses the top 10 candidates which will participate in the project. If you are not in the top 10 selected candidates, do not worry. The committee also creates a waiting list in case that some of the top 10 selected candidates are unable to participate in the end. All candidates will be notified in time about their results, and the successful ones will receive a further information.
Creation of the Teams
At the beginning of January, the teams will be created based on interests of individual students. Each team will be composed from MIAS CTU, MRU and Lille students. Committee will take in account individual personalities of students so that the composition of teams is balanced and teams can work effectively. During the working time on the projects, tutors will be observing cooperation between students in the teams apart from the progress the teams have made on their projects. Each team will be working with one company and will be solving its assignment. Committee and tutors will decide which project is the most suitable for each team based on the team compositions and its interests. So, you do not have to be afraid that the project would be out of your skills or from the field you are not interested in. During January, students will be invited for their first team meeting.
Once a week all MIAS CTU students will have an online lecture with MIAS CTU tutors to discuss progress in the project, check whether there are any obstacles or whether they need help with something. The rest of the time during the week will be up to the students and representatives of the companies, how often they will meet online to discuss the project and other matters.
Each student will receive an evaluation of his/her performance during the whole project together with a certificate about successful participation in the project. After submission of all required documents (questionnaires, team assignment poster, feedback on the project: 2-4 sentences and 3 photos from the stay at partner university with personal project evaluation) to the project coordinator, student will get 6 ECTS.
