Pisa was „Bellisima!“- Summer School in Pisa, Italy

This course was about the applications of the Industrial IoT and its practical applications.

The application process was simple and entirely online. I had to fill in all my details and upload my resume. The result was announced via email within a few days.

For the accommodation search, the university provided some options. But I was looking out for cheaper accommodation with the provision of a kitchen too. I was along with 2 other friends from TH Rosenheim who were doing the same summer course as me in the shared room. The arrival session was smooth and welcoming. We were given Canteen Cards and Bags. Learning environment was a Classroom equipped with projectors and speakers.

There were also many hardware demos provided by the respective professors.The language was comprehendible. Although some lectures were challenging as it needed the pre-requisite knowledge. Otherwise, the topics covered (RFID, Connected Vehicles, etc.) were also super interesting. Overall, an interesting and comprehensive course for the students who have a focus on Embedded Systems and IoT. I would recommend this course to the future students.


Visit the Leaning tower of Pisa, Arno River walk during the evenings, enjoy delicious Italian food and wine. Travel to Cinque Terre!. We were taken to the Computer Museum in Pisa where we got a guided tour of the oldest computer in Italy.

Overall, the summer school was comprehensive and highly informative. The learning outcomes from the summer course have helped me understand the possible topics I can consider for a Master Thesis. Getting to interact with the different students, the session on Connected Vehicles by Prof. Saponara and the great food shall be the top-of-mind recalls from this course.











„If you are free in the summer, please pack your bags and join this kind of summer course!“ Summer School in Prague, Czech Republic

I started looking electives to my degree and I saw European summer school option in last spring. Then I found course Online Marketing in Prague in Czech which was 2 weeks face-to-face course.When I found Online Marketing course in Prague, it was the best options which could fit for me. Topic, time, and location were great. Application to the course was easy because it happened online. Accommodation option came from Summer European summer school, and it was Botič Student House in Prague. It was normal student house for semesters, but in summer time there is a lot
of free space available.

Studying in school was great and there were many good lectures. In my course we got different lecturers which was nice experience. Every students had to have own computer that practicing was possible. Otherwise support and material came from course and there was a lot of concrete examples what we did. English language of course was understandable. I would recommend this course students who wants to develop their marketing skills.

After lectures and in the evenings, there was a lot of different opportunities to join different
activities. Summer school offered advised activities for the evenings.

I would say course gave me good experience to my academic and personal side. It was nice to
understand online marketing important for the future and also get some basic how you can
develop it by self.
In personal side, I got many friends and contacts around the world from this 2 week.

“Energy challenge: An interdisciplinary approach”- Summer School at the University of Groningen, Netherlands


Application process was easy, there were some forms on the website that needed to be filled out plus a short essay why I wanted to attend the summer school. The host university provided me with all the necessary information (Pre-Departure guide etc.).

There was a city walking tour and welcome drinks on our first day, so we really got to know each other and the program hosts. We had another introduction round on Monday morning. We had five lectures, played the WeEnergy Game, visited the company Gasunie, visited a hydrogen and renewable energy research center of the university.

The learning environment was supportive and fun. The size of about 15 people and the excitement of all the participants added to the good work atmosphere.

Groningen is a small city, I recommend staying in Amsterdam before or after the summer school for a couple of days. In Groningen you should see the Forum, go to the market and get a Stroopwafel, see the St. Martins tower, enjoy the vivid city and nightlife, walk or bike along the canal and do a city tour, Groningen has an interesting history!

In this summer school I learned a lot and met the most amazing people from nearly every continent in the world who are very passionate about the energy transition and helped me grow personally and academically.

„This summer school – with the topic: Enabling Technologies, Opportunities and Research Challenges Ahead – can really help me with my future projects!“

The university website provided me all the information about the Erasmus program and summer school programs, through this I got to know about the summer course. This course is specially on Industry 4.0which is the current technologies that are most used. As an Engineer knowing about the currenttechnologies is a must.

Co-ordinator’s from both the universities had help me to go through all the administration work in completion of my application.

The University had also offered us a tour to the Museum in Pisa and during the Leisure times, I travelled with other students to Florence and Viareggio city both are beautiful places. They are many international students in the course, we went out for dinners which was good and got to know many things.
Though Pisa, is very small city but it is filled out with 50,000 students so the city is very bright with the people which I love it, and the main attraction of the city is leaning tower of Pisa, they are few other parks near to the city to sit and relax.“

Through this course, I learnt many things from Industry 4,0. Which I don’t know them before and got a full overview about how the things works. This application can reallyhelp me in my future projects. When I was talking with many students from differentcountries get to know about different experience from them.
Overall, the course was really good for the students both educationally and personal experiences.

„The conference was an ever memorable experience for my academic life.“ – My trip to the 2022 IEEE SENSORS APPLICATIONS SYMPOSIUM in Sweden

„SAS 2022 conference was organized at Quality Hotel Sundsvall. Participants are provided with discounted stay facilities at the same. Sensors Applications Symposium is prestigious Conference which started in 2006 in Texas and is conducted in a hybrid model in 2022. I came to know about the conference as my co-authors of publication were already part of SAS Conferences before. Each publication team need to submit an abstract first followed by first draft of the publication and scrutiny of the applications takes place. (…)


Programs at the 2022 IEEE SENSORS APPLICATIONS SYMPOSIUM (SAS 2022) were divided into separate sessions. Presentations could be either of Poster Presentation or Slide presentation. Each day focuses particularly on a specific topic and journals which are related to topic are presented. (…) On the next day me and my project advisor Mr. Maximilian Wohlschläger started early to explore the city before the session starts and stunned by the Scandinavian architecture style. The second conference day started with a Keynote and followed by regular sessions and the main attraction of the day was Gala Dinner. Attendees were taken to a hilltop where we had an official dinner. Awards were distributed on different categories. I was stunned that I have been awarded “Student Travel Grant Award” among other 5 winners during the ceremony. (…)“

The conference was an ever-memorable experience for my academic life. I was able to meet and bond with people from different parts of the world. Since I was the only master student attending the conference, this opportunity was a major eye opener for me to pursue a career as a researcher or not. I am happy to find out the ongoing research in my areas of interest and there was a lot of interesting research happening. As an Indian student studying in Germany, I was able to extend my international exposure and proud that I have a group of international friends hailing from Germany, Austria, Italy, Canada, and United Kingdom. It is a dream come true moment for me to present my master project as a paper publication in an international Conference and indeed an indelible experience. I would like to extend my gratitude to my project guide Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Versen and project advisors Mr. Maximilian Wohlschläger and Ms. Nina Leiter for the guidance and wholehearted support.

Summer School in Prague: „One of the best things I will remember is the contact to an international group from almost thirty different countries.“

Preparation: Searching of universities and programmes abroad

  • I found the programmme on the summerschoolsineurope.com website. This programme fulfilled my criteria best. Interesting course program, good location in an international city and a good aftercourse programme.
  • Planning, application process and coordination at the host university
  • First step was a pre-request for a scholarship. Second was the application for the programme on the website of the Prague summer school. Third booking of the course the actual request for the scholarship.

Programme: At the arrival day there was a come together at the accommodation place with a personal introduction round. All necessary information’s were provided. The organisation was in general well thought through.

  •  I choose the project management course which was a course on introduction level. The learning environment was good and there was always assistance available when needed.
  • The course level was well balanced, and the teacher was native speaker with good teaching skills. I would overall recommend the program for future participants as it was a very good experience.

  • There was almost every day after work activities offered with two local guides who organised all the activities. They put a lot of effort in the organisation which was very appreciated by the participants.
  • There were for example a beach volleyball activity, a pub crawl, a karaoke night, a movie night, and several other activities. The activities were very appreciated by the participants.
  • Despite there were a lot of organised activities, there was also enough spare time beside the studying and course times.
  • A must see is in Prague is the well-preserved city centre. Prague is famous for its night live with pubs and discotheques, also the river side with bars and party boots is recommended.

Some of the course contents can surely be transferred to my future working life, as in engineering the work is lot of times organised in projects. One of the best things I will remember is the contact to an international group from almost thirty different countries. It has been a very good atmosphere in the course and during the leisure activities. It was a very nice experience with a lot of fun and very interesting to get to know a lot of different cultures.

Summer School in Pisa? „Geniale Sache! Ein Interessantes Thema in einer wunderschönen Stadt.“


„Über die Website: summerschoolsineurope.eu bin ich auf die Summer School der Universität Pisa gestoßen (..):

  • Universität: Universita di Pisa, Italien
  • Titel: 5G: „Enabling Technologies, Opportunities and Research Challenges Ahead“ im Juli 2022

Da ich selbst mit meinem VW-Bus anreiste, hatte ich keine Schwierigkeiten beim Finden einer Unterkunft. Direkt am Rand der Stadt habe ich einen Platz auf einem Campingplatz bekommen. Und das Beste: Ich hatte mein Fahrrad dabei. Somit konnte ich in nur 3 Minuten zum Schiefen Turm und in 5 Minuten zur Universität radeln.

Das Programm war strikt geregelt und es gab jeden Tag von 9:00 Uhr bis 18:30 Uhr Vorlesungen. Die sehr engagierten Professoren haben diese interessant und interaktiv gestaltet, wobei das Level der Vorlesungen auf einem sehr hohen Niveau war. Auch die technische Ausstattung der Universität war beeindruckend. Angefangen bei der (etwas übertrieben kalten) Klimaanlage bis hin zur multimedialen Gestaltung, alles war auf dem neusten Stand und hat super funktioniert. Zwischen den Vorlesungen wurden wir mit Pizza, Brötchen und süßem Gebäck versorgt 🙂

Tolles Networking: In der Mittagspause und nach den Vorlesungen gingen wir meist als geschlossene Gruppe essen. Auch den Abend verbrachten wir gemeinsam an einem Piazza, in einer Bar oder am Meer. Pisa ist eine wundervolle Stadt, die nach Sonnenuntergang erst so richtig zum leben erweckt. Egal ob am schiefen Turm oder am Fluss Arno, überall herrscht eine angenehme Atmosphäre und es wimmelt nur so von jungen Menschen. (…)

Mein Fazit: Die Summer School hat mir sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Trotz dem straffen Zeitplan der Vorlesungen und den anspruchsvollen Themen habe ich viel mitgenommen und neue Freunde kennengelernt. Das erlernte Wissen wird mir sowohl im Studium als auch im späteren Berufsleben mit Sicherheit weiterhelfen. Ich kann jedem nur ans Herz legen, so eine Erfahrung zu machen.“

My summer school experience in Finland: „Good academics, nature, white night and sauna – given a chance I would love to go back again.“

Hyvää matkaa! Jasim from the Master’s degree Engineering Sciences joined the LUT Summer School in Lappeenranta, Finland.

How did you prepare your stay?

„After being aware about the scholarship for Summer School from TH Rosenheim International offers, I started searching through all possible resources online. The website www.summerschoolsineurope.eu made the searching job easier. I was looking for relevant courses with respect to Engineering and I ended up finding LUT University offering course on Control Theory. My area of study is inclined to Control Engineering and I was fascinated by the Magnetic levitation topic which was offered in one of the three weeks. I filled up a form in their university website https://www.lut.fi/en/studies/lut-summer-school and later the Project Manager of the course contacted through E-mail.“

How was your leisure time and what did you do?

„Even though Lappeenranta is a small harbour city, the host university took a lot of efforts to arrange several activities to engage students after lecture hours. Sauna evening besides a the lake were organised every week. In addition a cruise trip in Saimaa lake with dinner was arranged. The most exciting programme was a weekend trip to Saimaa geopark where we got to stay under the tent for a night, kayaked in a clean water lake Kuolimo and cycled around the Geopark for a while. As the sun sets around 23:30 and never gets dark throughout the night time, we had plenty of time after lectures for get together, swim in the lake and chill at the beach.“

Overall, how do you look back on your stay abroad?

„There are possibilities to visit Helsinki and Tallinn if we plan according at beginning or at the end or during the weekends. Without a doubt, The Summer school helped me gain better understanding on Control Systems and its applications. (…).“

Summer School in Spanien

„(…) Ich war komplett zufrieden mit der Entscheidung in Strandnähe zu wohnen, da ich den Spaziergang zum Bus, die vielen gute unkomplizierten Nachmittage/Abende am Strand und in der Stadt mit den vielen guten Restaurants, gegen nichts eintauschen möchte. Allgemein war die Stimmung zwischen den Studenten sehr gut und es ergaben sich während der zwei Woche viele enge und hoffentlich auch langfristige Freundschaften. Allgemein ist Coruna eine sehr schöne Stadt mit einem schönen Strand (kaltes Atlantikwasser – baden jedoch durchaus möglich an heißen Tagen), einer schönen Strandpromenade, sehr gutem Essen, einer schönen Altstadt und einigen kleinen Sehenswürdigkeiten und einer gut organisierten Summer School. Ich kann die Summer School jedem empfehlen, es lohnt sich!“

Summer School in Spanien

„Auf die Summerschool in Nordspanien bin ich zusammen mit einem Studienfreund aufmerksam geworden. Nachdem wir bereits sehr gute Erfahrungen mit einer Winterschool in Finnland gemacht haben, wollten wir nun die Möglichkeiten für eine Summerschool nutzen. Dazu hatten wir auf der Seite des international Office erste Informationen eingeholt. Da ich sowohl von Verwandten als auch Freunden häufiger gehört habe, dass sich der Norden Spaniens sehr stark vom Rest des Landes unterscheidet und kulturell sehr viel zu bieten hat, fiel die Wahl schnell auf die Summerschool in Coruña.
