KurzbeschreibungThe ETH Summer Schools provide young researchers with the opportunity to work on current and sustainability-related topics in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams. Focus is given not only to teaching theoretical knowledge but also to solving specific case studies.
LernzielWithin the ETH Zurich's new Critical Thinking Initiative (CTI), students are being guided to become critical and independently thinking individuals. During the course of their studies, they will acquire the following key skills and qualifications: the capability to analyse and reflect critically, to form an independent opinion and develop a point of view, as well as to communicate, argue and act in a responsible manner.

Based on this concept, the ETH Sustainability Summer School is providing its students with the following qualifications and learning outcomes:

- Improved scientific competence: Students gain basic knowledge in different scientific disciplines that goes beyond their selected study discipline.

- Methodological competence: Students gain basic knowledge in different scientific methods that goes beyond of their selected study discipline.

- Reflection competence: Students will learn how to work in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams to critically reflect their own way of thinking, their own research approaches, and how the academic world influences society.

- Implementation skills: Students will apply creative technologies in solution finding processes to gain knowledge and prototyping-skills to increase hands on experience by applying knowledge in concrete cases.
