ARBURG Summer Academy

Practical technical degree programmes

8 students once again took advantage of the opportunity to find out all about the technical degree programmes offered by the Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW) during the holidays by attending the five-day Summer Academy at ARBURG.

Exciting and varied programme provides insights
Under professional instruction, the final-year school students were awarded the unique opportunity to learn all about the DHBW degree programmes in Mechatronics, IT, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at the Summer Academy 2017. The students also gained insights into daily working life at ARBURG and into what it's like to attend a lecture.

Robot competition with special highlight
During small workshops and team activities, they actively and independently developed their own projects and technical solutions. The students produced their own robots based on a kit, which they then programmed themselves and had compete against one another. On a winding course, including a see-saw, it soon became evident who had worked conscientiously and programmed with precision. The winners whose robot reached the finish line first received non-cash prizes as a reward.
