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.
The minimum age to participate is 18. Students should have completed the first year of their studies.
The winter school provides students with an introduction to new production technologies in connection with Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 is an initiative by the German government that promotes the integration of industrial production with information and communication technologies. Students will explore fundamental areas of Industry 4.0 and acquire a better understanding of current and future requirements in production technology. Subjects include but are not limited to the following topics: modern and smart factories, digital supply chains, robotics, networked production systems and human-machine interaction. Throughout the programme, students will study the generation of applied and innovative solutions in production technology.
The winter school is headed by the Cybernetics Lab, which is part of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of RWTH Aachen University. It is supported by the Institute of Mechanism Theory, Machine Dynamics and Robotics, the Chair for Digital Additive Production/Fraunhofer ILT, the Institute for Industrial Management and the Institute of Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics.
