Four Reasons to choose this Summer School
This Summer School introduces the mathematical and physical basics of building energy performance modeling and simulation and the implementation of models using computer-based numerical methods, computer algebra systems, and object-oriented modeling language Modelica. As a student, you learn about different methods of heat generation of renewable energy sources and dive into the topic of electricity trading in a computer simulation. This approach provides you with a broad insight into building performance simulation, the energy supply of buildings and districts, and also high-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs).
Special Program Features

Application Procedure & Selection
My two weeks in Aachen passed by so quickly, however, I gained a deeper understanding and knowledge about structural engineering as well as many great friends from all over the world. The courses were well-organized and the professors had a really high level. The social activities were fun too, it was a perfect combination of leisure with work. I really want to visit Aachen again in the future.
