Transylvania Overload: A Robotic Fairy tale!

General description

No, this isn't some cheap Jedi mind trick, this really is the course for you if you have ever wondered about the application of robotics. I mean, just look around you! Robots, robots everywhere. Well, they may not be as sophisticated as C3PO or R2D2, but a robot from Mars is sending data about the red planet as you read this. Robots have a big impact on our everyday life, it makes manufacturing more easy and more precise, we have bionic arms and I can go on.

Sounds too sci-fi? Well let me point out that this awesome course will take place in one of the oldest cities in eastern Europe. Surrounded on three sides by mountains, it was a perfect place for a medieval settlement. The old city, founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211. So basically you will be building the future while visiting astonishing relics from Romanian history such as The First Romanian School or The Castle of Dracula.

Brasov is known to be "probably the BEST town in Romania" for its incredible sights, rich history and friendly people. Situated in Transylvania, surrounded by mountains it surely is the BEST place to learn about this topic while enjoying the beauty of a medieval town.

Your course will include lectures, projects, case studies and practical work (evenly distributed throughout the course's timeline). You will study and practice at:

RESREC R&D Center in two locations of the Transilvania University of Brasov: Colina Campus and the R&D Institute (ICDT)

Besides courses and learning, you will be having a crazy time together with 20 other people from all over Europe, who share the same passion with you. So get ready to party and have the BEST time of your life.

I bet we've caught your attention, so start making plans for this summer, save some money and apply to this awesome event, which will only give you the greatest memories, a more advanced knowledge, and last but not least, friendships that can last forever. So what are you waiting for?

Your summer is going to be legen...wait for it...dary!
