In collaboration with NIKHEF (National Institute for subatomic physics in the Netherlands) the CERN Accelerator school is organizing a topical course on:
Mechanical Engineering for Accelerators
For the first time in the history of the CERN Accelerator School, a course on Mechanical engineering is organized. The focus of the course will be to orient mechanical engineers from their general knowledge obtained during their past education to techniques and solutions, which are specific for accelerator applications. In the mornings, a complete lecture program is foreseen covering a wide range of mechanical engineering aspects. These lectures are complemented by a series of application reports in the field of accelerators. In the afternoons four blocks of so-called “hands-ON” experiments are foreseen, during which the students will be guided to do practical work including visits of professional companies close by. Since a student without prior knowledge of mechanical engineering will not be able to follow the course, we have prepared a self-evaluation test on our website. We kindly ask every interested student to exercise this test and apply only for the course, if a sufficient high score is obtained in the test.
The latest one month before the course starting date we will inform all registered students if the course will take place or not. Only after this date we will proceed with payment requests and with the organization of transport. Still we encourage all interested students to register now, since the total count of interested students is important for us.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT PARTICIPANT SHOULD REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, FIRST COME FIRST SERVED AS THERE MAY BE A LIMITED NUMBER OF PARTICIPANT DUE TO COVID -19 SANITARY CONDITIONS.
