The Center organizes summer schools open to students at the ETH and other higher education institutions around the world. Each two-week, intensive program brings together 20 to 25 university students who are selected in a competitive admissions process from a wide range of disciplines and nationalities. The curriculum is also interdisciplinary and multicultural, allowing students to work in diverse groups and in collaborative ways. The courses incorporate various pedagogic methodologies including, but not limited to: lectures, workshops, field trips, student presentations, small group and plenary discussions, artistic and creative activities, and small-group case study and project work. This approach allows academic content and rigor to be blended within an immersive and experiential learning context to create a unique opportunity for the participants.
