A truly outstanding contribution to enhance the learning experience provided by this SSI Masters Programme is that towards the end of August each year, before the formal teaching semester starts in Budapest, a Summer School event lasting 3 to 4 days is held in Hungary.
In the first year, the Summer School was held in Balatonboglár which is about 150 km from Budapest.
At this first Summer School event, as well as some social activities for the participating students, the main focus was on lectures given by invited high ranking academic experts, not only from Hungary but also from Norway. Topics presented were mainly those closely related to all aspects of Smart Systems and Integration. A truly unique experience is provided to the students following this particular Masters programme.
