ROS Summer School


Due to the Corona Virus this summer school will not take place in 2020. The next ROS summer school will be in 2021.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, in cooperation with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information technology, has been offering an international ROS Summer School during the semester break since 2012, focusing on the area of mobile autonomous robotics and enjoying an ever-increasing popularity ever since. Here, the basics as well as additional topics in the areas of perception, localisation and navigation of mobile robots are worked on. Moreover, everything is presented in English on a fairly high technical level.

Online Industry 4.0 Summer School: 20-31 July 2020

As every year, we are offering an international Industry 4.0 Summer School for all students who are interested in engineering, digitalization, and smart factories.

3D Printing Summer School

Due to the Corona Virus this summer school will not take place in 2020. The next 3D Printing summer school will be in 2021.

3D Printing is about to revolve the way we design and make products. Therefore it is essential for those technically interested in this field to understand the capability, the challenges and the drawbacks of this technology. While this technology marks a hype even in private areas like journals and television it is barely taught in engineering education.

Our summer school provides a comprehensive, theoretical approach to 3D technology combined with hands-on experience.

After one week of delving into the 3D printing topic, you will be able to

  • build your own 3D printer
  • start printing your own portfolio and prototypes,
  • know how to handle the data-chain for printer operation,
  • understand the special challenges of different model types, and
  • obtain reproducible parts.

Our summer school is presented in a relaxed atmosphere where the instructors

  • are always available to answer questions
  • motivate participants to get involved
  • give feedback
  • make sure that’s there is also fun and action.

The students are welcome to bring along a project of their own to be solved during the summer school.

After having completed your 3D Printing Summer School, you will receive a FH Aachen Certificate in 3D Printing.

Materialize your own ideas - if you can image it - you can print it!

Spain: Online Spanish Language Summer School at University of Granada in June, July & Augusgt 2020

I am reaching out to fill you in on an exciting new project the University of Granada’s Centro de Lenguas Modernas (CLM) has set in motion. The Covid-19 pandemic is bringing about a new and uncertain scenery in the field of international education. This situation will relentlessly affect the normal course of study abroad and international mobility programs from now on. As one of the leading centers in the teaching of Spanish language and culture at an international level, we are determined to keep responding to the learning needs and demands of our international students as well as those of our partner programs and universities.

With this in mind, we have created an offer of online Spanish language and culture courses which have been designed to equal the excellence of those CLM traditionally offers on-site.

Let me introduce you to our new online course proposal:

We are sure Spain will overcome this situation in the very near future. When this time comes, CLM will continue to be one of the leading centers in teaching Spanish, and the city of Granada, always ready to embrace students and make them feel at home,  will once again show its usual splendor.
Meanwhile, learning and credits do not need to be put on hold.
