International Week of School of Technology gathered engineering-orientated participants from European partner institutions of HAMK together.
In early April, HAMK's School of Technology hosted an international week for the staff and teachers from their engineering oriented partner institutions. During the week, the participants were hearing more about HAMK education and presenting their higher education institution and it's exchange possibilities to week's participants and HAMK staff and students. The week was successful and full of fruitful discussions, laughter and new beginnings for future co-operation.

Big part of the week was to give HAMK students international lectures of their field and better look to the possible exchange study destinations. In example, Leszek Szojda from Silesian University of Technology, Poland, had lectures for construction engineering students about the deep excavations, special feature of his home town Gliwice, where coal mining tunnels crisscross under the tow. International skills were trained with lecture “International Civil Engineering” where Christian Brewer from Germany, Mainz (Hochschule Mainz) told some reasons for gaining better ability and skills for international cooperation.

One of the aims of the International Week was discuss about possible future co-operation in joint student project field. During the week it was decided that partners will start a common student project together. The project will include Electronic and Automation Engineering, Information and Communication Technology and Mechanical Engineering and Production Technology from HAMK and the counterpart programmes of Vives University College (Belgium), ENIT - Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs (France) and Deggendorf institute of Technology (Germany). New project will be start immediately and coordinator of the first round will be Vives University College.
New joint project will start with participants from HAMK, Vives University College (Belgium), ENIT - Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs (France) and Deggendorf institute of Technology (Germany)
