The four weeks I spent in Aachen were great. Not only did I learn a lot regarding automation and simulation but I also gained a better understanding about other cultures from all over the world. It was an amazing experience meeting so many different people and sharing different cultures with each other. I am grateful for this great opportunity and hope I come back to this beautiful place in the future.Enes Arda, Turkey | Summer School - Automation & Simulation
