Hannover, 10 - 16 September 2014

Institute of Electrotechnology (ETP), Leibniz University of Hannover

The aim of the course is to bring together up to 15 PhD students from European Universities and PhD students from the host institution to take part at intensive courses on induction heating and induction melting processes including related power supplies and to work together in theoretical and experimental work as well as in mathematical modelling and numerical simulation. The students will participate in lectures, discuss their own scientific topics and existing problems under the guidance of well-experienced supervisors in order to take profit for their research studies.

The 6-days programme of the Intensive Course for PhD students (see below) gives the general guidelines, whereas the participants themselves according to their interests could also develop the details of the contents. As a result of this process, the created working groups have to carry out the chosen small projects and to present the received results finally.

The project oriented teaching and learning is the basic idea of this kind of intensive course, where the interests of the PhD students are in the centre of the activities. Not only passive listening but also active participation in the work is expected.
