From July 1 to 26, 2019, RTU Foreign Students Foundation and Short-Term Courses Unit organized its 6th international summer camp “Robotics. Real-Life Applications of Intelligent Design“, where 14 students from 10 countries – Australia, Mexico, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, France, Greece, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, Ukraine and Russia – perfected practical and theoretical knowledge in robotics, 3D modeling, artificial intelligence and other areas related to the industry.
The aim of the summer school is not only to provide international students with high-quality knowledge from RTU faculty members and industry representatives who provide with the necessary theoretical and practical information in developing a functioning robot, but also – to promote a deeper understanding of the Latvian language, culture, history and education. Incorporated activities related to the Latvian language and culture in the summer school program, its organizers hope to enhance the recognition of Latvia abroad and to promote co-operation between RTU and higher education institutions in engineering fields. In this context, the organizers of the summer school are grateful to the State Education Development Agency for the financial support provided to 10 students.
The summer school organizers want to express gratitude to the RTU Datorzinātnes un informācijas tehnoloģijas fakultāte, RTU Design Factory, Lab House and robot development company RobotNest for providing intellectual and technical support. Besides all the activities and practical classes organized students were introduced to Latvian companies representing information technology, mechanics, mechatronics and electronics during the summer school. Robo Camp has been hosted by such companies as HansaMatrix, Mass Portal, Gamechanger Audio and SAF Tehnika.
