The Summer School CESI

The Summer School is characterized by the active project-based teaching methods inherent to CESI. Participants will put the theoretical knowledge they gain to work by designing an environmentally friendly solution to a construction problem. 3D printing machines, laser cutters and virtual and augmented reality equipment are just some of the tools that students will use to bring their projects to life.

Participants will get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in the innovative French culture and learn from professional experts, receiving 4 ECTS credits at the end of a project presentation.
