Welcome to APESS 2020!

In 2020 Purdue University will host the 13th Asia-Pacific-Euro Summer School on Smart Structures Technology in West Lafayette, Indiana, USA.

The program is intended for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers in civil and mechanical engineering, and related disciplines. Following upon successful programs in past years, leading experts in Smart Structures Technologies from around the world will deliver lectures and guide students through interactive activities.

Through this intensive 3 week program of coursework, lectures, labs and site visits, civil engineering graduate students will learn about smart structures technology in an interactive setting. The curriculum will address the hardware, software, data informatics, and applications of smart structures technology. Laboratory experiences and site visits will extend knowledge beyond the classroom, providing students with practical, first-hand experience.

Social and non-academic activities will round out the experience, providing opportunities for interaction with fellow students, speakers, and faculty in relaxed settings.
