Faculty of Mechanical Engineering

Internship for foreign students

  • Are you a motivated student looking for a unique international experience in mechanical engineering?
  • Do you want to join a student research team and learn how to design and implement a unique robot / vehicle / machine that takes first places in world-wide competitions and contests?
  • Do you want to improve your skills and knowledge in automatic control and robotics / biomedical engineering / mechanics and machine design / mechatronics, materials and manufacturing engineering?
  • Do you want to conduct research under the guidance of experienced professors, taking advantage of modern laboratories equipped with top-level measuring equipment?

If yes, you are cordially invited to apply for a student research internship in the Internships for Foreign Students Programme (IFSP) at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Bialystok University of Technology, Poland.

You may choose an internship period that better suits your needs:

  • short-term, two-week internship,
  • mid-term, eight-week internship,
  • long-term, sixteen-week internship.

Two-week internships are for Bachelor and Master students willing to learn on how we conduct laboratory and project classes for our students, how the students work in their student research clubs and how they design their successful robots / vehicles / machines. By taking this two-week internship you will have a unique opportunity to join our laboratory and project classes, perform regular experiments using modern measuring / test equipment, discuss with our students / research staff technical problems that really excite you.

Eight-week and sixteen-week internships are for Master and PhD students wanting to conduct research under the guidance of an experienced professor. You will have an opportunity to fulfill your individual research programme by performing analyses, calculations, measurements using our computer hardware / software and measuring / test equipment located at our modern laboratories. It is expected that your findings will be concluded with a written report (eight-week internship) or a written manuscript ready to be sent to one of distinguished international journals indexed in Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database (sixteen-week internship). You will be also adviced on how to plan your research career towards a successful PhD.

Programme precises dates and other details of an internship. The schedule will be agreed individually with the internship supervisor.


You will be an integral part of Bialystok University of Technology – the modern technical university in one of European Union countries.

As an intern in one of our short-, mid- or long-term internships you will have all the rights of a student of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Bialystok University of Technology. You will have admission (under the guidance of the internship supervisor) to all our laboratories, measuring / test equipment, computer hardware / software, University Library, etc.

After finishing the internship you will receive a written certificate of completing the internship signed by the Vice-Rector for International Cooperation and by the Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering.

After mid-term or long-term internship you will have analytical / experimental data and a written report / manuscript to prepare a joint article in one of distinguished international journals indexed in Journal Citation Reports (JCR) database.


Enrolled Bachelor, Master and PhD students with excellent academic performance records in mechanics and mechanical engineering, automatic control and robotics, mechatronics,biomedical engineering or materials and manufacturing engineering


Vivid interest in science and research. Bachelor students must have completed at least 4 semesters of their studies before starting the internship. High proficiency in English (working language). Official enrollment as student at home University.

Tuition fees

Successful candidate will have to pay the tuition fee. Its amount will depend on the type of an internship and on the individual programme agreed with the supervisor. The tuition covers the costs of implementing the internship (guidance of the supervisor, admission to all facilities, etc.) but does not cover travel, housing, insurance and living costs.
