The Keller Center is pleased to welcome nine international students to campus to participate in the summer REACH program at Princeton University. The program, founded in the summer of 2010, is an international research exchange program. Princeton University partners with three German Ruhr universities: Ruhr University Bochum, University of Duisburg-Essen and TU Dortmund; as well as The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and ASTRI, a Hong Kong government sponsored research center.

The mission of the REACH program is to offer students on both sides an 8-week, hands-on research internship in an international context. Participating students are immersed in a new culture while working on a research project in their field of study. The program aims to broaden students' perspectives and enable them to become globally minded researchers and technologists.
In total, twelve Princeton engineering undergraduate students will be in either Germany or Hong Kong this summer to participate in the program. In exchange, Princeton is hosting nine international engineering students: five graduate students from Germany, and four undergraduate students from Hong Kong. The students are each paired with a faculty advisor in their field of study with whom they will work throughout the summer.
