The first "IP Summer School „Engineering Visions" took place in 2013, the first two sessions being run and financed as an Erasmus intensive programme. Meanwhile, the summer school is run and financed by five partner universities.
After some preparatory assignments at home, a group of 5-7 students from each partner university come together for 2 weeks to develop their engineering vision of and for the future. Students need to combine hard and soft skills as they work together in international interdisciplinary teams with the support of mentors from different cultures.
