The event is over.

17-07-2016 to 13-08-2016


Our summer school, Which is funded by the Hessen State Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts, is on the topic "Energy-efficient and sustainable building" and takes place from 17 July until 13 August 2016. It is an English- taught course and we will Provide students with knowledge about the use of green energy and innovative materials in planning, and Maintaining constructing a building. We will give participants insight into environmentally friendly technologies and sustainable energy production. Students will learn how to apply the "Hottgenroth Software" used by energy advisors for simulating the behavior of a building, taking into account detailed climate data and calculations of the cooling-, heating-loads and air temperature.


The academic courses taught by our Civil Engineering professors (and other experts) are complemented by field trips to building sites, companies and public institutions, enabling students to apply their knowledge at first hand. An additional one-week excursion to southern Germany will bring participants to passive houses, the hydroelectric power plant Walchensee (renewable energy generation) and cultural highlights (e.g. traditional Bavarian festival).


Our agenda also includes a German-as-a-foreign-language-course and a variety of leisure activities prepared for all participants outside of the classroom. Students can earn up to 9 ECTS credits for this 4 week intensive-programme.


Participants: The academic programme is suitable for students from a variety of backgrounds, such as Civil or Electrical Engineering, Architecture, Energy Management and related disciplines. International as well as German students will attend the ISU and give your students a unique global experience.


Programme fee: €1990 - including 4-weeks tuition, field trips and excursions, accommodation in shared twin rooms, health, accident and liability insurance, and social activities.

Students who submit their applications before April 1, 2016 can qualify for the early-bird rate of € 1790.


Final application deadline: May 8, 2016

This is a unique chance to learn more about energy efficient technologies and solutions for eco-friendly buildings and thus contribute to a reduction in global warming.
