The Business of German Engineering - Summer School at Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences

What do cars, x-rays, and MP3s have in common? They were all first engineered in Germany! Today, Germany is one of the leading export countries of machinery and technology. "The Business of German Engineering" is the topic of the 2022 Summer School of Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences.

Germany's elite status is primarily owed to the German phenomenon “Der Mittelstand“. It is the small and medium sized companies that build Germany’s backbone as a global exporter of machinery and technology. Making up almost 99% of all companies in Germany, each of them has chosen to excel in specialized technologies that together comprise the highly advanced products we use every day. The 2022 Summer School of Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences will thus discss "The Business of German Engineering".

What the summer school has to offer:

- A selection of engineering and science lectures taught by the university’s faculty members
- Topics delivered with a high practical orientation and a focus on relevant market aspects
- Daily visits to successful small and medium- sized companies
- A closer look into the manufacture and distribution of the presented technologies
- Facilitation of networking opportunities with the companies’ professionals
- A series of events and seminars, conveying the cultural and intellectual aspects of the German engineering business
- Planned excursions, get-togethers, and leisure activities
