11.10.2022 | DIT Public Relations

With the conclusion of the third summer school at Campus Cham, the Interreg/ETZ-funded cooperation project “Summer with Industry 4.0” of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) and the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen came to a successful end. The two project partners were funded with a total of 130,000 euros.

A total of around 30 students from Cham and Pilsen took part in the three events, which were held both at Campus Cham and at the university in Pilsen. The range of topics, which was under the overall motto “Industry 4.0 – Digitalisation of Industrial Processes”, included “Predicitive Maintenance”, “Machine Learning”, “Virtual Commissioning”, “Digital Twins” and “Autonomous and Collaborative Robots”. As can be seen from the names of the topics, the events were held entirely in English. According to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Firsching from Campus Cham, this was the opportunity given to international students for professional exchange, but also for gaining experience in activities with cross-border cooperation.”

Another important aspect, besides the teaching of professional knowledge, was the social interaction of the different nations (Czech Republic, Germany, India and Ukraine). Intercultural cooperation plays and increasingly important role in many high-text projects today. Therefore, this project also focused on the cooperation of international teams of experts.
