International Summer University on energy efficient and sustainable building and construction in July/August 2014

The summer university is dedicated to one of the major environmental topics nowadays: how to use our natural resources wisely and – through improved buildings, materials and technologies – consume less energy. The academic program is suitable for students from a variety of backgrounds, Civil or Electrical Engineering, Architecture, Energy Management or related disciplines. We will combine lectures and seminars by our professors from the department of Civil Engineering (and other fields) with hands-on experiences as well as lectures of practitioners during a number of field trips in Germany. We will visit building sites, companies and public institutions. As Germany is one of the pioneers in “Green Buildings”, you will learn about technologies and solutions which are unique in the world.

Our agenda will also include a German-as-a-foreign-language-course and a variety of leisure activities prepared for all participants outside the classroom. The ISU team will be available around-the clock during the summer university. International as well as German students will attend the ISU and give your students a unique global experience. Students can earn up to 9 ECTS credits for this 4 week intensive-program.
