You are a BSc/BE student enrolled at a renowned university, have profound knowledge of the English language and are studying computer science, mechanical engineering or a related field.
Ideally, you should have taken classes that address the following areas and thus already have basic knowledge in the following areas: mathematics, mechanics, materials science, thermodynamics, computer science/programming techniques, machine drawing/machine elements, and modelling.
The minimum age to participate is 18. Students should have completed the first year of their studies.
The Summer School covers the fundamentals used in automation and simulation. In hands-on exercises and computer lab lectures, students solve real world problems using industry standard and open source software. As a result, methods used in mechanical engineering are tried, tested and acquired, enabling students to better use their skill set in the interdisciplinary engineering world. In addition, students learn about German language and culture in the language classes.
The teaching is divided into an engineering part and a German language part. The Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) and a visiting scholar and long-standing friend of the IAM are responsible for the automation and simulation classes. The Language Center of RWTH Aachen University conducts the language classes.
