Program Overview

Program Description:

Duration: 4 weeks (July 8 to August 2, 2019)

In this summer school, students receive an introduction to cutting edge computer technology and methods used in mechanical engineering. This program offers an overview of numerical methods used to solve engineering problems, as well as an introduction to calculation and simulation techniques in production. Students will be exposed to such topics as the modeling of physical problems using Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Differentiation and Integration, Finite Element Methods and Numerical Solutions of Differential Equations.

The programme is based on the following pillars: I. Excellent Science and Research in Automation and Simulation Students will be exposed to such topics as the modelling of Physical Problems using Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Differentiation and Integration, Finite Element Methods and Numerical Solutions of Differential Equations. II. German Language and Culture The Language Centre of the RWTH Aachen University provides an intensive German language course of 6 hours per week. The experienced German teachers take great care of the international students and convey not only German language skills but also a sense of German culture. III. Social Events - Have fun while studying! All students attend an extensive leisure time programme during their stay. They will experience German culture hands-on through German cultural events, excursions to cities nearby, sporting events, get-togethers with students from various international Master’s programmes, intercultural events, an intercultural workshop, and a lot more – enjoy your stay!
