International Summer School on Sustainable Buildings for Europe
In corporation with CEEPUS
Our annual summer school is a 10-day residential programme organized by the Department of Energy and Environmental Management of the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland (Austria) at its Pinkafeld campus.
The summer school is an integrative part of the curriculum of full-time bachelor students enrolled in courses of the Department of Energy and Environmental Management of the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland. Foreign students from partner universities have to apply and register to be eligible for a CEEPUS grant to cover travel and maintenance costs. Registration is open to science, architecture and engineering students enrolled at the participating universities.
The language of the summer school is English.
Topics central to the course include renewable resources, such as heat pumps, biomass and photovoltaics, opportunities and limitations of such renewable energy technologies, as well as energy efficiency of buildings and ecological assessment of energy systems. Course leaders and guest lecturers cover a broad spectrum of international experience. Apart from the theoretical input, the aim of the school is to offer some practical solutions, especially with the help of laboratory work and field trips.
The main emphasis of the summer school is on the elaboration of a design plan in international project teams guided by one of the invited professors whose expertise will help students from different fields and countries to find creative solutions to a concrete task.
Field trips and participation in regional cultural events are also planned to facilitate cultural exchange and also to make this cooperative work more fun.
The date for the 9th International Summer School on Sustainable Buildings for Europe will be announced in May 2020.
