Summer School 2021 | Online Course
German Engineering & Culture
Beginning in August 2007, RWTH Aachen University and Keio University have staged a Summer School in Aachen for around 20 selected students from Keio's Graduate School of Science and Engineering. This program is an important part of the cooperation between RWTH Aachen and Keio and supported by numerous institutes of RWTH, including the Institute of Applied Microbiology (IAMB), Institute of Inorganic Chemistry (IAC), III. Institute of Physics B, Institute for Combustion Technology (ITV), Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design (SLA), Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL), Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, Aachener Verfahrenstechnik (AVT) and the RWTH Aachen University Language Center (SZ). As we established this successful cooperation, we like to invite other Japanese students, too.
The Online Course is all about German engineering, natural sciences, and German culture. As a student, you are provided with an introduction to selected topics. At the same time, the interdisciplinary approach allows students from different fields of study to gain new insights into some of the most interesting fields of study RWTH has to offer. Topics include Industry 4.0, sustainable mobility concepts, fundamentals of natural sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) and bioprocess technology. Basic knowledge of and interest in these topics is what you need in order to participate successfully. The program features academic and social events that are related to the German way of life and enables you to even learn a little bit of the language in an applicable and fun way!
Especially important is our Summer Mentor program: Various online events with German students who study Japanese as a language or include a semester in Japan in their studies, take part in this program and are there for you to connect, learn about German food, culture and maybe even stay in contact to make a new friend in the long run.
Participation in the Summer School is open to students from Keio University, to students from all of RWTH Aachen's Japanese partner universities as well as to students from member universities of the ASPIRE League.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to this year's German Engineering & Culture Online Course!
