Student exchange project Oldenburg-Kiev

Since 2015, an annual student exchange project has been carried out with the Kyiv National University for Construction and Architecture (KNUCA) in Ukraine. The project uses terrestrial laser scanning and photogrammetry to record complex objects and process them into 3D models. The project takes place in the summer semester, one week in Kiev and one week in Oldenburg. Participation is free of charge, as the project is financed by the Internationalisation Fund of the Jade University of Applied Sciences.

German and Ukrainian students work on their project independently in mixed groups, from planning the measurement to managing time and resources to evaluating and presenting the results. Communication takes place in English. In addition, there are excursions, evening meetings and intercultural exchange at all levels.
According to the unanimous opinion of all participants, the project is a highlight in the studies, has brought completely new experiences and a comprehensive learning success. Genuine friendships have developed among the students that will last far beyond the project period.
