Journey through German engineering

Grab your backpacks and start your engines: We’re going on a journey filled with top-notch lectures, insightful company visits and fun social activities. All about engineering and business and how it’s done in Germany.


An academic adventure

Our journey through the business of German engineering starts on campus. Just for you, we chose and invited lecturers who will share their expertise about the field of engineering they’re specialised in. Each of them has a profound academic and professional background, allowing you to gain meaningful and detailed insights into chosen thriving industries– day by day and step by step.

Traveling on a road with several stops

Road trips are fun, right? This is one of a special kind. You will literally hit the road on your journey to learn about German engineering. We have planned courses during the morning which will be topically continued in the form of company visits in regional cities afterwards. In the late afternoon, we drive back to academics as there will be further eye-opening lectures on relevant business topics.

To round up the day, you can engage in delightful social activities in the evening – or take your time to charge your batteries for the next day.

Building a network

  • "The brightest lecture, as well as the last day of summer school with a great party in the evening. The only negative thing is that I was sad to go home, realizing that summer school was over."
  • "The student body of HSHL was very welcoming and eager to interact with exchange students. From ultimate frisbee games to impromptu social gathers, there were a plenty of opportunities to experience German culture from a student perspective."
  • "I would be recommending it to all my classmates. It is an amazing opportunity specially if you are thinking of working overseas after graduating. I would absolutely recommend the program to all students at any stage in their collegiate careers! These types of unique experiences do not come around very often in life and you should jump at the chance if presented with the opportunity!"
  • "All in all, I loved the program. I thought it was a tremendous experience and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to participate. I learned a lot about myself through the experience and developed friendships that I maintain to this day. The program was a nice blend of business topics, engineering, and social experiences that provide a taste of what German culture is all about."
  • "Loved it, especially how the dynamic worked with the other international students, having different viewpoints from all over the world while learning about German culture and seeing how that compares to other than your own was really unique."
