“International Spring School on Systems Engineering” in Paderborn, Germany

intense, compact advanced training on SE, Application deadline 27 January 2013 

The “International Spring School on Systems Engineering” is a cooperative course.

IS3E is organized by the Technische Universität München (Institute of Product Development) and Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT – Project Group Mechatronic Systems Design supported by University of Paderborn (Heinz Nixdorf Institute), the Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, NJ), École Centrale Paris and the INCOSE (German Chapter). It addresses international PhD students of all disciplines whose working areas are intensely dealing with Systems Engineering (SE).

The aim is to encourage international scientific exchange of PhD students.

During the five day course you discuss important literature, definitions as well as current and future topics in SE research. As a PhD student you will receive an intense, compact advanced training on SE and systems thinking by two well-known international researchers. Furthermore, you will gain insight into industrial implementation and application of SE. SE experts from several companies will give invited talks and participate in intense discussions on industrial SE requirements. A great variety of activities beside the academic exchange will complete the program.

The spring school is created for PhD students who want to extend their knowledge of SE. This is a great chance to discuss SE elements within your research topic and enhance scientific work with SE. The number of participants is limited to 18. The course language will be English. Participants gain 3 ECTS points

The Spring School will be held in Paderborn at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT. Due to a funding by the Volkswagen-Stiftung we can support international and national participants financially concerning travelling and accommodation costs.
