Summer course 2017 Ljubljana

Have you always been fascinated by lights? Light is both obvious and mysterious. We bathe in the sunlight each day and repel the darkness with light bulbs and LEDs. The nature has evolved its own ways to produce light, which we admire (think of fireflies and shining plankton). But what exactly is light? What are its properties? How have humans been able to master light and what do we need to connect so that there will be light? How have animals mastered production of light?

If you have ever wondered what is the way of light or if you are eager to learn new things, then our summer course is perfect for you! Join us and 23 ambitious students from all over Europe between 12th and 19th of July in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Ljubljana. Each summer course is attended by technology students like you, who have something in common: they want to live a unique experience, different from day-to-day school life!

In one week, you will learn what is light, how do lasers and LEDs function, how do animals produce light by themselves, how to produce optimal lighting conditions for your own house, how the high-speed internet is made possible using optical fibres, and much more. In addition, you will learn what are the latest innovations through company visits.

Besides academic activities, our organizers will make sure you always stay on the light side of life. Throughout the week there will be a variety of social activities and city trips through Ljubljana. During the weekend we will take you on a trip to Posočje, where you will be able to experience the full beauty of Slovenia.

Our summer course is the perfect opportunity to complement your field of study, increase your international experience, set up contacts, improve your English level and have fun!
