Abstract

Innovation is considered a key factor for companies operating in competitive markets. In consequence, the European Society for Engineering Education (SEFI) considers it as one of the crucial skills that newly graduated engineers should be educated on. It can be seen as a responsibility of universities’ staff to provide the needed knowledge, skills, and attitudes that would enable graduated engineers to identify the companies' needs to obtain effective innovations. To develop this last aspect, the University must allow students to have the opportunity to get acquainted with students from other countries working in the same innovation development project.In this paper, an experience is presented that analyses the collaboration among five university partners. Students of these institutions have collaborated in 8 innovation engineering projects that were carried out in the fall of 2019. In February 2020, a symposium was organized in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where students showcased their innovations. In total, about 67 students from different nationalities collaborated in these 8 projects. This paper will cover the experiences of students and teachers in these international innovation engineering projects.
