Status: March 4, 2021
Due to the current global situation, we decided to in fact realize our 2021 Summer Schools taking place in June and July as distance-learning Online Courses to ensure the safety of our participants at any time.
Online courses 2021
In Summer 2020 and Winter 2021 we experienced, that distance-learning can also be an excellent option to realize Short Courses - without any boundaries. Please find updated information on these Online Courses on our website:
If you have already applied for one of these programs, you will be contacted individually. Of course, the program fee has also been adjusted: the Online Course fee reduces to a 60% of the regular program fee. Should you have already paid the regular program fee, you will be reimbursed the difference in fees. Please note that the Early Bird discount or scholarships don't apply to the now reduced fee. If you decide not to take part in the distance-learning format, you will be given the opportunity to cancel your participation according to the conditions mentioned in the participation agreement.
On-Campus Summer Schools
Our August Summer Schools are still planned to take place on campus in Aachen:
- Production Technology meets Industry 4.0 | August 2 - 20
- Robotics for Future Industrial Applications | August 2 – 20
In case the situation in late summer still doesn’t allow further travel or requires long quarantine periods, we will also replace these programs with Online Courses. Of course we will keep you updated here and on the respective programs' website.
Please be assured that, if we conduct Summer Schools here in Aachen, we will guarantee you the highest security standard possible throughout all parts of the all-inclusive program:
Once you arrive in Aachen and move into your accommodation you will meet your roommate(s), together with whom you build one reference unit from then on. This peer unit will accompany you though the every-day academic program, social events, excursions and freetime without any distance. Sticking to all common hygiene rules furthermore allows you to connect with the other participants of the Summer School, build great friendships and enjoy your everyday life in Aachen like a normal student.
If our 2021 Summer Schools take place on campus and you are part of it, be assured that we guarantee the highest security standard possible throughout all parts of the all-inclusive program:
✓ "all-inclusive" package
✓ face-to-face lectures and exercises
✓ hands-on learning
✓ institute, lab, and company visits
✓ excursions and social events
Please follow the common hygiene rules:
▶ Wear nose-mouth coverings where mandatory
▶ Stick to your reference unit to protect the whole group
▶ Keep distance of 1,5-2 meters to peers outside your reference unit
▶ Wash your hands regularly
▶ Use hand- and surface desinfection whenever necessary
▶ Stick to hygiene concepts of RWTH International Academy
▶ Follow the regulations at your accommodation and all other service providers
