The programme is based on the following pillars:
I. Excellent Science and Research in Robotics
Students will be exposed to topics such as OPC UA, DDS and other communication standards in modern industrial applications, as well as the state of the art in behavior generation both for stationary industrial as well as autonomous mobile groups of robots. Topics dicussed and tested will be:
- Smart Factory Intra-Logistics and Robotics
- Communication between heterogeneous Systems
- Advanced Software Engineering and Development
- Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Robotics
The joint Aachen team "Carologistics" from the RWTH Aachen Univesity and the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, won the RoboCup Logistics League in China in 2015 - so you can be sure to be exposed to the latest research and development in the field during your summer stay in Aachen.
II. German Language and Culture
Through the university’s “BeBuddy” programme, 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 “Buddy” who is typically a student enrolled at the RWTH Aachen University and can so offer first-hand experiences in and around the campus, painting an authentic picture of university life.
III. Social Events - Have fun while studying!
The RWTH International Academy offers an extensive support programme next to the academic courses in which participants meet like-minded people from around the world. All students from our different summer school programmes are invited to take part in sporting or dancing events, cooking nights and get-togethers with students from various international Master’s programmes. There is a wide offer of intercultural activities and excursions in and around Aachen – enjoy your stay!
Being in the heart of Europe, summer school students will also have the opportunity to explore Aachen’s surrounding area – be it other German cities close-by such as the former German capital Bonn, Düsseldorf and Cologne or the European diversity in cities like Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam.
