Program description

I. Academic Content

The Summer School covers the fundamentals used in automation and simulation. The topic simulation features various exercises in a computer lab. As a result, students solve real world problems by applying software commonly used in industry, thus, acquiring a better understanding of methods used in mechanical engineering. The topic automation provides students with an overview of modern automated production systems, covering all the major cutting-edge technologies of production automation. It also features an automation related company visit.

II. German Language and Culture

Summer School students gain insight not only into the student life in the beautiful city of Aachen but also into the rich and vibrant German culture and history. Through the university’s “Summer Mentor” program, international students have the chance to immerse themselves in the vibrant student community at RWTH Aachen University. Participants will get to know Aachen from a true student’s perspective: They learn more about academic and cultural practices in Germany with the support of their German “Mentor” who is typically a student enrolled at RWTH Aachen University and can so offer first-hand experiences in and around the campus, painting an authentic picture of university life.
