Study Tour October 2023 Info and Application

Scintilla is planning to go on a Study Tour again in October 2023. During this Study tour a lot of interesting companies and universities in a foreign country will be visited and it's culture will be explored. Leading up to the Study Tour is a year of preparation where each participant takes part in organization and taking cases for companies, which leads to a lot of working experience.

What is a Study Tour?

A Study Tour is a three week long trip to explore a foreign country and see how Electrical Engineering is relevant there.  This three week visit is filled with University visits, company visits and cultural activities. As a participant you arrange funding through cases & sponsoring and you organize part of the tour through committee work.

During the trip and the year leading up to it you gain experience with organizing a big international trip, working together in a big group of students, working for companies and new cultures & work environments.


The Destination is South Korea, although which parts will be visited still needs to be determined by the participants themselves.
