ESIREM Exchange Program - 2010

2010 ESIREM Exchange Program Students
The 2010 ESIREM Exchange Program students are:
Catherine and Guillaume.

Catherine Le and Guillaume Lelimousin are students from the University of Burgundy's Dijon materials engineering program (ESIREM). We are beginning our second decade (2010) of hosting these students for a six month work experience in Kentucky. The materials science students are assigned a mentor/supervisor from appropriate programs and perform research, which in turn acts as their senior/master's project at ESIREM.

Since 1999 the CAER has hosted materials engineering students from the University of Burgundy's ESIREM program in Dijon, France. These students work at CAER for five months in order to finish their senior internship requirements. This is the tenth year that this exchange program has existed between ESIREM and CAER. The students return to France to present their work before faculty members in September. This is part of a larger university-wide partnering program with the French school that includes UK's Colleges of Agriculture and Business.
