Summer Camps 2017

„Innovation, Creation, Diversity”

At Jacobs University Bremen, we bring together bright minds from around the globe to live and study on one campus. With over 1100 students from almost 100 nationalities we are proud of the community we have built. Our students are remarkable not only academically, but through their social involvement, their awareness and appreciation of diversity, their creativity, and their concern for humanity and for nature.

The summer camp offers pre-college students the chance to experience such a unique environment for one week. Students from different corners of the world will live and eat in our colleges, take part in workshops, and participate in excursions and team building exercises.

This year’s international summer camp is, for the second time, offered in collaboration with the VDI (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure), Germany’s largest association of engineers. Together we will offer workshops in several different study fields.
