Wind Power Summer School - In Cooperation with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy A/S & Vestas Wind Systems A/S

Are you interested in getting an insight into the latest developments in wind power along with other international and Danish students during your summer vacation?

In close cooperation with representatives from the wind turbine industry in Denmark, Aarhus University School of Engineering offers a summer course with focus on wind turbine technology in August 2019 in Denmark.

The purpose of the summer course is to enable participants to apply their engineering competences to wind turbine technology problems and gain an insight into the functioning of turbines and the interaction between the different sub-components and their demand profiles. The summer course's main focus is on mechanics and power engineering problems.

A considerable part of the course will be carried out in cooperation with the Danish wind turbine industry. Also, part of the teaching will be conducted by the cooperating companies.
