IAESTE & FISITA
FISITA (Fédération Internationale des Sociétés d'Ingénieurs des Techniques de l'Automobile) was founded in Paris in 1948 (the same year as IAESTE!) with the motto Progressons en Commun – Together we Progress. FISITA’s purpose is the same today as it was then: to bring together engineers from across the globe to share ideas and advance the technological development of the automobile.
FISITA is the umbrella organisation for the national automotive societies around the world - controlled by the engineering profession and supported by the global automotive industry. Their network of Member Societies represents over 210,000 automotive engineers. FISITA’s goal is to provide a forum for dialogue amongst these engineers, as well as industry, government, academia, environmental and standards organisations.
IAESTE and FISITA have many common goals and values and we are pleased to partner with each other to extend our mission to the students of the world. You can see FISITA's latest newsletter here and sign up to receive future editions. There is an article in the newsletter about our relationship and history with FISITA.
For students in the automotive fields, there are great opportunities for internship bursaries, as well as events that could enhance your career. We are delighted to continue this relationship and look forward to developing it further in the future.
