Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Product Innovation

In this Summer School you will have an introduction to the demanding topics of generating product innovations. You will get introduced into the aspects of mechanical engineering to create and engineer cutting-edge innovative products.

The "Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Product Innovation" Summer School is educationally conceptualized and conducted by the Institute for Engineering Design (IKT), Institute for Theoretical Information technology (TI) and the Institute of mechanism theory and dynamics of Machines (IGM) of the RWTH Aachen University.

The Institute for Engineering Design focuses especially on computer-aided product design and development - the elementary ingredients for innovation and technology leadership. Within their very interdisciplinary team, the IKT provides a practice-oriented education, which is based on distinct cooperation with international industry partners and application-oriented specific research. For decades, the IKT has been training outstanding engineers in the field of systematic product development as a worldwide recognized institution in the field of design methodology and product lifecycle management. In our four competency groups, research is being done on a broad interdisciplinary spectrum of current, future and industry-related issues.
