The Summer School is all about German engineering, natural sciences, and German language and culture. It provides students with an introduction into 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 Aachen has to offer. The program also features academic and social events that are related to the German way of life.
The lectures and exercises in engineering include the topics Industry 4.0 and sustainable mobility concepts. The lectures and exercises in the natural sciences include the fundamentals of biology, chemistry and physics, as well as the advanced topic bioprocess technology. The exercises also feature experiments. As highlight, students will visit a surface mine and a power plant.
The German language classes will equip students with the necessary language skills to cope with everday situations at RWTH Aachen University as well as in daily life. There are usually two separate German language classes taking place in parallel, creating a suitable classroom atmosphere for supporting the students' learning success. For experiencing German culture, the students will undertake a city trip and have the possibility to visit museums.
