Are you interested in getting a special insight into Wind Turbine Technology together with International and Danish students in your summer holidays?

In close cooperation with representatives from the wind turbine industry in Denmark, the Engineering College of Aarhus offers a Summer School with focus on Wind Turbine Technology from 9-21 August 2009 at "Fuglsøcentret", Denmark.

The purpose of the Summer School is to enable you to apply your engineering competences to Wind Turbine Technology problems, and to gain an insight into the functions of the turbines and the interaction between the different sub-components and their demand profiles.

The Summer School will especially focus on mechanics and control engineering problems.

A considerable part of the course will be carried out in cooperation with the Danish wind turbine industry. Several days the lessons will be conducted by the companies at their localities.

Course Description – Summer School Wind Turbine Technology
