Top Summer Courses in Technology Studies

A summer course can be a valuable introduction to the study of many subjects or can be used to supplement regular coursework. The types of classes available vary widely and can be found at every skill level.

What is a summer course in technology studies? These courses may be exploratory in nature and give those new to the study of technology an introduction to formal technical study. The courses can be taken by those working towards a degree in technology to enable them to finish their degree in a shorter amount of time or to specialize in a specific area. In addition, summer courses in technology can be devoted to advanced research projects or development of software or apps. Students can enroll in summer courses that teach the basics of coding, website development, hardware, or virtually any topic under the heading of technology. 

A summer course in technology provides the advantage of convenience, since these classes are offered at times when school is not usually in session. In addition, summer classes tend to be smaller in size and can provide individualized attention.

The cost of a summer course in technology depends on the institution offering the classes and the materials or equipment used in the coursework. Financial aid may be available for students. In addition, some companies fund these courses for their employees.

Taking a technology course in the summer can develop an interest in pursuing technology as a regular field of study or as a career. Those with technical degrees are sought in almost every kind of field, since technology is at the heart of many businesses in the modern world. Most medium to large companies have departments that deal with repairing and implementing technology as well as developing proprietary technology. Technology engineer and developer, business systems analyst, application architect and technology specialist are some of the jobs graduates pursue.

Technical summer classes are waiting to assist you in reaching your educational goals. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The E.ON Energy Research Center (ERC) of RWTH Aachen University, including the Institute for Power Generation and Storage Systems (PGS), the Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ISEA), the Chair and Institute of Power Systems and Power Economics (IAEW), is responsible for the academic content of the „Smart Electrical Power Systems“ Summer School and conduct the programme’s lectures, tutorials and laboratory classes.

Introduction to Smart Electrical Power

The share of decentralized power generation is steadily increasing, in particular renewable energy sources like wind and photovoltaics. Both wind and PV are connected to the electrical grid with power electronic converters and operated with a dc voltage internally. Also long-distance electrical power transmission systems and consumers of electrical energy like e.g. LEDs, heat pumps, (fast-) charging systems for electric vehicles (internally) operate with dc. Therefore, the applications of dc in distribution grids become more and more feasible and efficient, especially on system level. The lectures will discuss on future grid structures and application scenarios of dc technology. The focus is set on power electronic converters for dc distribution and dc transmission.... [-]

The Data Science Summer School offers a broad multidisciplinary perspective on the different pillars of data science, including data mining and big data analytics, machine learning and AI, network science and complex systems, digital ethics, computational social science and applied data science, featuring lectures by high-level international scholars.

Aim

Data Science is emerging as a disruptive consequence of the digital revolution. It is based on the combination of big data availability, sophisticated data analysis techniques and scalable computing infrastructures. Data Science is rapidly changing the way we do business, socialize, conduct research, and govern society. It is also changing the way scientific research is performed. Model-driven approaches are supplemented with data-driven approaches. A new paradigm has emerged where theories and models and the bottom up to the discovery of knowledge from data mutually support each other. Given the interdisciplinary nature of Data Science this exploits data and models for advancing knowledge in different disciplines or across diverse disciplines (e.g., biology, economics, medicine, etc). The main topics of the summer school are related to big data analytics(i.e., extraction of knowledge from big data, machine learning; providing an overview of the main techniques used to automatically learn and improve from experience and complex systems; methods and technologies particularly related to network science). Moreover, lectures will highlight the ethical implications that data science could lead and the countermeasures that each data scientist can apply to perform analysis with respect to the individuals involved in the data. ...
