General description

We know you are concerned about our environment, and, lets face it, policy alone is not going to get us there. What will?? Engineering of course!

No, this is not your average course on sustainability. This, people, is the most effin fun effective one! Lets put words into action. Lets talk about solutions, not problems.

Come to Leuven this Summer for an unforgettable course about sustainability in which you will learn about tomorrow’s technology to tackle pollution and reduce waste. Interesting lectures from world renowned professors, a challenging case study, visits to companies which put the theory into practice, you’ll experience it all here! The complexity of the course will be kept to a fairly basic level such that students from different backgrounds can apply for the course.

Together with us, you check out the longest bar of Europe, the best chocolate and yummiest fries, one of our many Belgian breweries, and yes.. you will learn how to draft a decent beer! Of course, we don't waste any food here, so prepare yourself! Besides those jolly visits, you will simply be charmed by our lovely city, owned and ruled by students. Its old center is full of history, but yet so vibrant! A party is never far away!

So if you are ready for this awesomeness AND you know how to ride a bike.. then APPLY for the experience of a lifetime!
