The Research in Munich program is specifically designed for University of Arizona students who wish to gain hands-on experience in research. Projects are offered in several research fields working with professors in their labs. Students must select their top 2 choices for research laboratories as part of the application process. The projects can be independent research projects or part of a larger, ongoing project. Students need to be personally motivated to apply themselves and to ask questions.
Students will receive beginning UA German language credit (GER 101 or higher) and should negotiate internship or independent study credits with their major/minor departments. This means students can receive 3-4 credits of UA German language credits, plus 3-6 credits of independent study or research credit from their major/minor departments.

The University of the Armed Forces in Munich (UniBW Munich) has faculties in engineering, law, business, and the humanities which serve approximately 4,000 students. Many of the degree-seeking students at the UniBW are completing their degrees while they are also serving in the German military. There are also many civilian and international students on the campus to make for a diverse and enriching research experience.
Students are expected spend a minimum of 270 hours working on their research assignment during the 9 week period of the program, for which they will receive 6 units of UA direct credit within their engineering major. Students will be expected to work Monday through Friday in the lab, except for holidays. They may also have some Friday afternoons free. Cultural activities and excursions will be organized by the UniBW staff and students. There will also be regular guest lectures from local faculty throughout the summer.
A University of Arizona Graduate Assistant in Teaching (GAT) accompanies the students during the first month of the program to assist with a positive transition. The GAT also teaches German 101 to help students negotiate their surroundings and to earn UA credits.
