2020 International Summer University at TU Darmstadt (for Undergraduate students)

The International Summer University of TU Darmstadt: German Engineering and Language will again take place in 2020, from July 05 – August 01. 

The Summer University program invites Undergraduate students from Engineering Degree programs to explore German Engineering and to get an insight into the German language and culture.


The International Summer University consists of four components:

1. Engineering Courses (Automotive Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering and Production Engineering), Workshops and Excursions to German companies.

2. Intensive German Language Courses on A1, A2 and B1 level

3. Cross-Cultural Competencies Training for Engineers

4. Social and Cultural Events as well as Excursions in and around the Hessen region.



The 2020 program will hold different modules where students will have the opportunity to choose aerospace or automotive engineering courses in the first two weeks and then continue the last two weeks with production or mechatronic engineering courses. We believe this gives the students the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding in the chosen field of study by focusing in these areas of engineering. Although it is not a requirement, this program will be most useful to undergraduate students with an interest or previous knowledge in Mechanical Engineering. Students studying in similar subject areas within the field of Engineering and Sciences are of course also welcome to apply.




The total costs are € 2,500, but we are glad to grant1 of your excellent students a program fee waiver.

The discounted fee is € 1,900.

The application Deadline is 15 March 2020 and we would like to ask you to send your nominations on this day at the latest.


The program costs cover: engineering courses, workshops, company visits, language courses, cross-cultural competencies training for engineers, course materials, social activities and excursions, ticket for public transportation, insurances, student services and accommodation (excl. breakfast) in two-person rooms with a kitchenette. Participants will only need to cover traveling and living expenses.


Credits (NEW):

Participants may obtain 10 credit points of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS), which accounts for 5 US / Canadian credit points.
