You are a BSc/BE student enrolled at a renowned university, have profound knowledge of the English language and are studying 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 and basic knowledge in probability theory.
The minimum age to participate is 18. Students should have completed the first year of their studies.
The Summer School will introduce students to the fundamentals and challenges related to the engineering of mechatronic systems as well as product innovation. Mechatronics is an interdisciplinary field of engineering, including mechanical, electrical and software engineering.
As a result, the Summer School is divided into three subject areas. Firstly, fundamental issues in industrial robotics and related mechatronic systems will be explored. Secondly, students establish an understanding of the properties of transmission and information and the relationship between coding and the fundamental limits of information. Finally, a mechatronic system will be systematically developed.
Three institutes conduct the lectures. The Institute of Mechanism Theory, Machine Dynamics and Robotics focuses on mechatronics and robotics. The fundamentals of mechatronic systems engineering are taught by the Institute for Machine Elements and Systems Engineering. The Institute for Theoretical Information Technology covers information theory and coding.
