Complete Description

EESTEC Summer School will bring together students from all over Europe who are interested in modern applications of design and illustration methodologies on one hand and web development on the other, in the service of entrepreneurship and employability of young people, but of social growth and progress as well.

During one week of intensive work, experts in both design and web development will be delivering lectures to participants in order to transfer them their up-to-date knowledge in illustration and software tools.

Students will be taught how to use IT applications and design, illustration principles, advanced-level tools and will learn how to develop them even further through innovative working sessions. Each student will have a chance to combine personal design and web development techniques for constructing a case-specific personal project, while receiving feedback from specialists and other participants at the same time.

Finally, apart from transmitting state-of-the-art technical skills, the greatest impact this project will have is to promote the cooperation among students, while increasing their productivity and quality of their work.

Parallel tracks

The event will follow two main tracks that will be held in parallel, with 8 hours of workshops and lectures per day; the main topics will be:

  • Graphic Design
  • Web Development

The school will take place from August 5th to August 12, 2012; during this time we will offer free board and lodging to:

  • 10 trainers that will lead and motivate the work groups.

Moreover, we will provide free access to the event to up to 30 local students.

Part of the program will be devoted to a hands-on competition between groups of 5 participants mixed between designers and developers.
