FISITA (The International Federation of Automotive Engineering Societies) is progressing their plans for FISITA 2018 in Chennai, India, 2-5 October and are looking forward to another fantastic event bringing together students, academic and mobility experts from around the world.
FISITA is working with SAEINDIA to develop the Travelling Fellowship programme; this is a unique programme providing student engineers under the age of 35 the opportunity to experience first-hand the global automotive industry and to interact with fellow students and engineers from around the world. Students will be taken on a number of technical tours to various automotive industry and cultural sites in Chennai and the surrounding region, followed by participation in the Student / Main Congress. Travelling Fellows will take part in the activity‐packed programme starting a week before FISITA 2018.
As in previous years SAE-Australasia has reserved some budget to support one of our student members to travel to Chennai to take part in this fantastic opportunity. The SAE-A will fund the flight and accommodation cost for one student and SAEINDIA will cover the costs of the tours and food.
