Dresden Work-Based Student ExchangeEducational Exchange
Our Sister City
This exchange between Columbus state Community College and Berufsschulzentrum Für Elektrotechnik Dresden began in 2018, when ten students from Dresden came to Columbus for an 8-10 day internship to explore their sister city and learn about the field of Electrical Engineering and IT. In 2019, ten Columbus State Community College students visited their partner school in Dresden to learn about workforce development programs.
Thanks to the support of the City of Columbus, Dresden Sister City and local companies, this exchange is at no cost to the students. This permits the students to learn more about their STEM career field while experiencing a different culture. This program is unique since less than 3% of U.S. community college students study abroad.
