Caucasus Summer School

The Caucasus Summer School has been organized since 2016 by Koblenz University of Applied Sciences and its partner universities in Azerbaijan and Georgia.  Since then it takes place annually in September alternating between Baku and Tbilisi. In addition to teaching units at the partner universities, practical student assignments in local companies are a central component.  The aim is for students to gain international team experience, to apply their expertise to practical challenges of companies, and to improve their personal job market opportunities.Even the Covid 19 pandemic did not cause a break in 2020, but moved the Summer School into virtual space and provided new approaches and project impulses. What remains constant is a triad of teaching, excursion and project work.
