The International Research Opportunities Programme (IROP)  offers students an exciting chance to spend 8 weeks at one of Imperial’s partner Universities during the Summer vacation. This is an exciting opportunity to broaden your perspective, gain new experiences and develop your skills.  Please note that the Department does not award credit for IROPS (or other forms of out of termtime work).

The Department of Aeronautics participates with the MIT and Cornell University exchanges which are only open to current third year H401 students. There are two places available for each exchange (4 in total) and student selection takes place around the end of February. The students with the best academic record will be invited to apply.

The IROP contact in the Department is Dr Joaquim Peiro so interested students should contact him in the first instance.
