Munich Summer School of Applied Sciences
July 13 – August 13, 2009

General Information
Aim of the international Munich Summer School of Applied Sciences is to offer you a highly interesting study program in automotive engineering, business and management. You will be prepared for challenging tasks in technical development and management departments.

You get to know Germans and German culture by meeting local students, the teaching and support staff as well as through participating in the social program and the field trips. Eventually, all participants will be accepted into the university’s Alumni network.

Subject Courses
As the automotive industry is searching for more efficient modes and materials, the summer school offers credit courses in Automotive Mechatronics, Thermodynamics and in Design of Lightweight Structures. In order to give future engineers the opportunity to learn more about entrepreneurship and management as well, they can take a course in Innovation and Entrepreneurship and International Management. For cross-cutting issues in engineering and economics, you can also choose Product Development in the Global Context (each worth 4 ECTS or 3 US-Credits). All courses are taught in English by multinational teams of two or three renowned.

Intensive German
Hochschule München is aware that language matters, even for a short stay in a foreign country. For this reason all international students participate in a week-long German language course (various competence levels) prior to the start of the summer school. It continues with morning classes during the second week of the summer school. You receive 3 US-credits (= 4 ECTS) after having passed the final exam.

Cross-Cultural Communication
Engineers and managers – even in small and middle-sized companies – increasingly deal with international partners and clients. During the international Munich Summer School of Applied Sciences you study and work together on projects. This prepares you to work in multinational teams in your future career. Apart from such experiential learning Hochschule München believes that a more structured approach to learning about intercultural communication is in order. This is why all students – including the German participants – will attend a course on cross-cultural communication (2 ECTS or 1, 5 US-Credits).

Courses and Credits
You will select two credit courses that are taught in English by multinational teams of two or three renowned lecturers from the University of Applied Sciences – München, from the Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship as well as from our US partner California Polytechnic State University

48 student-professor contact hours will be covered in all courses including laboratory experiments and simulations. This is equivalent to 4 ECTS-credits or 3 US-credits. All courses will be assessed and marked so that you can receive credit for the program at your home university.

Target group are international and German students who are enrolled in mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering or business degree programs. The courses target advanced Bachelor students; there is no age limit.

The program fee of 2,190 Euros covers tuition for two subject courses, the German language class, the intercultural communication class as well as housing and the cultural program. It needs to be paid by April 15, 2009. Scholarships are available this year.
