The prospects of an energy system and a whole economy relying solely on renewable energy is the topic of the 2019 Hessen International Summer University "In Transition to a Pure Green Energy Economy" at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.
The Hessen International Summer University Darmstadt brings together technical and business perspectives and focuses especially on three challenges on the way towards a green energy economy:
1. Transforming supply: Technology as the driver for real competitive renewable energies
2. Transforming demand: Smart homes and smart cars for smart people
3. Transforming business: Strategic impacts for business models
The programme combines scientific knowledge taught in English with hands-on experiences during field trips to companies and public institutions. Students will have the opportunity to establish valuable contacts for their future careers. To complement the classroom work, excursions to near and distant sights, cultural learning and lots of leisure activities outside the classroom are included in the programme.
German language courses:
In addition to the academic seminars, all students attend intensive German language courses. These courses are offered at three different levels (ranging from beginner to intermediate). Participants will have the opportunity to practise their language skills with German students who also attend the International Summer University Darmstadt.
