Three institutes are conducting the lectures: The Institute of Mechanism Theory, Machine Dynamics and Robotics focuses on mechatronics and robotics. The fundamentals of mechatronic systems engineering are taught by the Institute for Machine Elements and Systems Engineering. The Institute for Theoretical Information Technology covers information theory and coding.
The Winter School will introduce the fundamentals and challenges related to the engineering of mechatronic and robotic systems. Mechatronics and Robotics are dynamic, multidisciplinary subjects combining three engineering fields: mechanical, electrical and software engineering. This complex inter-meshing of disciplines requires profound technical expertise.
At the end of the program, students will take part in a written final exam or final presentation over the course. Upon successful completion, you will receive an Executive Certificate from RWTH Aachen University stating your final grade of the course.
Certificate and Workload
At the end of the Winter School program, you will receive a Certificate of Participation together with a Certificate Supplement from RWTH Aachen University, stating the workload and the academic content of the Winter School.
Upon successful completion of the Winter School, you will furthermore receive an Executive Certificate and a Certificate of Performance from RWTH Aachen University, stating the final grade.
Have a look at the workload of our Winter Schools:
|about 60 hours||2 ECTS credits can be awarded|
|about 90 hours||3 ECTS credits can be awarded|
|about 120 hours||4 ECTS credits can be awarded|
Ultimately it is up to your home institution as to how many credits may be awarded. For details, please speak to your home institution’s Study Abroad Adviser!
