The UZH International Summer Schools offer interdisciplinary programs for bachelor and master students from all over the world. The programs combine classroom instruction, group work, and individual study with industry expertise and academic travel. They have been offered at the Faculty since 2019.
The following Summer School programs from WWF will be held this summer, 1-19 July 2024 in a hybrid format (on-campus and online):
This summer school programme will give you a complete immersion into the topic of blockchain from world-leading experts and practitioners in the field at Europe’s No. 1 university in Blockchain education (ranking by CoinDesk 2022 and 2021). Blockchain-based systems, with cryptocurrencies as the most prominent example, have disrupted and reshaped the way we now think about digital finance and other similar applications, such as supply chains. Blockchain and related technologies allow to store sequential, trustful information without enforced consensus by central authorities or trustees.
For a full understanding of Blockchain, with all its implications and potential for application in practice, it is absolutely crucial to look at it from a multidisciplinary perspective. This is exactly what the UZH Blockchain Center offers during the three weeks of this course: you will understand the three key pillars of blockchain systems, namely the technology, the economics and the legal aspects behind it. Building on this, we will then explore other fields of application, such as forensics and data analytics.
The program is offered as a hybrid summer school: Students can choose between an online participation or to travel to Zurich and attend in person.
If you are interested in participating in the Summer Schools, please refer to the UZH course catalog for details on how to book the module.
