WCM Summer School background

The WCM Summer School is a yearly Summer School (since 2012) hosted by the Ministry of Defense on the topic of Maintenance Management & Engineering facilitated by World Class Maintenance. The University of Twente and WCM have been responsible for organizing the WCM Summer School since the first WCM Summer School. 

Every year the newest theoretical insights are presented in eight workshops by professors and lectures of seven Dutch universities. Other aspects of the WCM Summer School are working on a case from practise and a leadership training. Participants are young professionals (80%) and PhD and master (20%) students with a technical background.

World Class Maintenance facilitates cooperation between universities

For the WCM Summer School, WCM facilitates the cooperation between seven academic universities in The Netherlands on the subject of Maintenance Engineering, i.e. University of Groningen, Technical university of Delft, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands Defence Academy, University of Tilburg, Erasmus University Rotterdam and University of Twente.

World Class Maintenance and cooperation with industry and education

Under the flag of World Class Maintenance, many companies are in cooperation with educational organizations active in maintenance innovations which are crucial for a sustainable, safe and development of the Dutch economy. In WCM educational organizations of all levels cooperate from a shared vision and ambition to develop and distribute top-knowledge and top-education. The resulting closer cooperation between knowledge centres, participating universities and industry enhances valorisation of maintenance knowledge.
