Comments:
The programme lasted 4 weeks and we have visited 4 European countries: France, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg. ICN has 4 campuses located in Metz, Nancy, Nurnberg and Paris respectively. We spent 2-5 days in each of the campuses where we took classes, ate and slept. Besides from having class, we also visited French and German companies where we saw new technology and learned their strategies and history. We had tours in galleries and museums where we knew more about European culture and history. We met the CEO of a German instrument company and learned from his experience. We also visited the European Commission and the Court of Justice in which we learned a lot about the European Union and how it works.
