The European Project Semester (EPS) is a programme offered by several European universities to students who have completed at least two years of study. At the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences, the EPS is embedded in the Department of Media and Digital Technology and the Department of Computer Science and Security.
EPS students work in international project teams while simultaneously attending lectures related to the successful completion of their project. They acquire expert knowledge in their area of specialisation as well as soft skills which help them prepare a convincing project presentation. Teambuilding events and organised social activities also play an important role in the project semester.
The European Project Semester is designed for students from all over the world seeking to expand their intercultural and interdisciplinary competencies.
All classes are taught in English, which is also the language of communication.
Students receive 30 ECTS credits for successfully participating in the EPS. International students whose home universities do not use the ECTS credits system, are advised to consult with their international office about recognition. US students may transfer up to 12 course credits with the approval of their home university.
