Top Summer Courses in Engineering Studies

Pursuing a summer class in engineering studies is a great option for both the student and the professional. Currently enrolled students can speed ahead in their studies and shorten the length of time it takes to complete their degree or diploma. For professionals already working in the field of engineering or wishing to advance in their field, taking summer classes can provide a steppingstone via additional credentials or specialization.

In making your decision, you have probably wondered, “What is a Summer Course in Engineering?” The field of engineering is very broad. At its most basic, the field is divided into electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering. However, there are many more divisions within those general fields of specialization. Therefore, you will find a large number of classes offered within the scope of engineering. The summer course itself is an accelerated class that covers the same material that would be covered during a normal semester, but in an abbreviated time period.

The benefits of studying engineering are many. Since the field is very broad, there are many career options and specializations. As an engineer, you will have the opportunity to use your love of science and math to solve many of society’s problems. The field is both disciplined and creative. Taking a summer course could help you decide if this is the career for you, or it could help you move forward in your current career.

The costs of taking a summer course can vary widely depending upon the institution you choose and whether or not you live on campus. You might decide to take an online course instead, which can greatly reduce your costs. Each prospective student should perform due diligence to insure a productive experience.

Obtaining a degree in engineering can lead to a fulfilling career with many future opportunities to move off in another direction, if you choose. As time progresses, many new branches are being added to the field of engineering such as aerospace, biomedical, nuclear, electronics, robotics, and acoustics.

Many institutions offer summer classes on their campuses, and you will find a wealth of online offerings, too, including international options. Enrolling in a class online offers the benefit of flexibility, allowing you to fit the class to your time schedule.

»FORECAST ENGINEERING«

FROM PAST DESIGN TO FUTURE DECISION

The design of engineering structures takes place today and in the past on the basis of static calculations. The consideration of uncertainties in the model quality becomes more and more important with the development of new construction methods and design requirements. In addition to the traditional forced-based approaches, experiences and observations about the deformation behavior of components and the overall structure under different exposure conditions allow the introduction of novel detection and evaluation criteria.

Bauhaus-Universität Weimar presents special topics of Structural Engineering to highlight the broad spectrum of civil engineering in the field of modeling and simulation. The expected outputs of the summer course are to enable the participating students to deal with advanced methods in model validation and simulation and its practical application, as well as the exchange of ideas between the participating students....
