Upcoming schools

Where

Sint-Michielsgestel, Holland

What

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.

When

25 May - 7 June 2020

Where

Chavannes-de-Bogis, Switzerland

What

This Introductory CAS Course represents the core teaching of all CAS courses and also represents the ideal opportunity to be introduced into the field of particle accelerators. This course will be of interest to staff and students from laboratories and universities, as well as companies manufacturing accelerator equipment. The course will focus on various aspects of beam dynamics and will provide an introduction to the underlying accelerator systems.
