The First PIP Summer School in Electrical Engineering and Physics took place between the 5th and the 9th of September 2016 at the University of Bremen (NW1 Building, Otto-Hahn-Allee 1, 28359 Bremen, Germany).
This event was organized by members of the Postgraduate International Programme in Physics and Electrical Engineering (PIP). It was a great opportunity for collaboration between 3 different Institutes of the University of Bremen: Institute of Automation (IAT) with Maria Kyrarini, Institute of the Environmental Physics (IUP) with Evgenia Galytska, and Integrated Digital Systems (ITEM) with Wolfgang Büter as their representatives.
More than 100 registered students of more than 10 different nationalities (Chinese, Dutch, German, Greek, Iranian, Iraqi etc.) from the University of Bremen, Bremen University of Applied Sciences, Jacobs University, University of Kassel, Heriot-Watt University (Scotland), and University of Technology (Iraq) had an opportunity to attend lectures in Physics, Robotics, Environmental Physics and Electrical Engineering.
The opening ceremony, which took place on the 5th of September, with the exciting talks of Dr. Annette Ladstätter-Weißenmayer and Maria Kyrarini was followed by music band performance 'Misha Kapa'. In a cheerful atmosphere the acquaintance of students with each other and with their teachers was much easier.
