Summer school September 18 – 29, 2017

"Simulation and modeling of technical processes"

 Students, scientists and scientific staff members from Iraqi Universities

The summer school seeks to impart knowledge on mathematical modeling in the fields of mechanical engineering, materials science, Petroleum engineering, civil engineering and process engineering to students of our Iraqi partner universities as well as students of TU Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF). The summer school will combine lectures on simulation and modeling in solving specific problems in engineering with laboratory trainings. Both, lecturers of TUBAF and lecturers of Iraqi partner universities will present and discuss different aspects of modelling as well as problem solving strategies.
