Summer Engineering Academy

The Summer Engineering Academy is a great opportunity to gain first impressions of studying engineering and to learn more about a possible future career in the field of Mechanical Engineering!

Join our international team at the Summer Engineering Academy in Suzhou, China. Our Engineering Academy is three days course, compact with the unique combinations of practical and theoretical course programs in engineering as well as leisure activities. The course is aimed at secondary school students that have a passion for mathematics, physics, and technics and are between the ages of 16 and 19. 

The many exciting workshops and lectures provide great insight into the world of mechanical engineering. Lecture topics focus on the compelling subjects of mechanics, mathematics and thermodynamic and are exemplified within practical workshops. Additionally, we contribute insight into the specifics of what it will be like to study Mechanical Engineering at an international university level. The young talents also learn about future job perspectives of an engineer that holds an international profile.

Parents of the bright students are invited to listen to a separate, exclusive presentation and are welcome to ask any questions about studying, engineering or life as an international student.
