Besides high quality education, applied research, digitalization, cooperation with the public, industry and society, Aalen University of Applied Sciences is dedicated to its internationalization. For this purpose internationalization is not only integrated part of the university’s structure and development plan but also the academic senate has decided the implementation of an institutional internationalization strategy.
Within the frame of internationalization activities the university also participates in international oriented projects such as the project ESTRATEGIA DE INTERNACIONALIZACIÓN to support internationalisation efforts of partner institutions and to strengthen its own capacities. Together with the Ulm University of Applied Sciences, the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP), Perú and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV), Chile, Aalen University of Applied Sciences implemented this project within the frame of the DAAD program Dialogue on Innovative Higher Education Strategies between 2012 and 2015, which was funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The result of this project was among others A PROCEDURES MANUAL FOR INTERNATIONAL OFFICES AT HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS TO IMPROVE THE MANAGEMENT OF INTERNATIONALIZATION PROCESSES, which is available in English and Spanish in the following.
