We are pleased to inform you that TU Darmstadt again offers summer programme next year. The International Summer University: “German Engineering and Language” will take place from June 06 to July 16, 2022.


The ISU programme invites undergraduate students from engineering degree programmes to explore German Engineering and to get an insight into the German Language and Culture. Starting with a two-week virtual phase, we continue with a 4-week on-site period here in Darmstadt.


The International Summer University consists of four components:


1.Engineering Courses

a.Mechanical Engineering: Automotive Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering and Production Engineering

b.Electrical Engineering: Electromagnetic Field Simulation and Microfluidics + bioMEMS

2.German Language Courses – STEM (beginner to pre-intermediate level)

3.Cross-Cultural Competencies Training for Engineers

4.Social and Cultural Events as well as Excursions.



The 2022 programme will hold different engineering modules where students will have the opportunity to choose two courses of either Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering. We believe this gives students the possibility to gain a deeper understanding in the chosen field of study by focusing in these areas of engineering. Although this is not a requirement, this programme will be most useful to undergraduate students with an interest or previous knowledge in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering. Students studying in similar subject areas within the field of Engineering and Science are of course also welcome to apply.


Please find the syllabus attached for more information on the engineering, language and cross-cultural courses offered for the programme this year.




The total costs are € 2,500.

Partial Scholarships available for students of TU Darmstadt’s partner institutions.


The programme costs cover: engineering courses, workshops, company visits, language courses, cross-cultural competencies training for engineers, course materials, social activities and excursions; public transportation ticket, health insurance and student services; accommodation.


Credit Points:

Participants may obtain a total of 12 ECTS (credit points of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), which accounts for 6 US/Canadian Credit Points.


Application Deadline:

The application deadline is March 15, 2022.


You can find more detailed information about the programme on our website: www.tu-darmstadt.de/isu
