RWTH Aachen University
English Name: RWTH Aachen University
Region: Western Europe
Country/Region: Germany
Found Year: 1870
Address: Templergraben 55

RWTH Aachen University is the largest university of technology in Germany and one of the most renowned in Europe. It currently has more than 45,000 enrolled students, most of them in engineering. Every year, numerous international students and scientists come to the University to benefit from its high quality courses and excellent facilities, both of which are recognised at an international level.

RWTH Aachen University is in the process of developing from a polytechnic into an integrated, interdisciplinary technical university. The engineering focus of the University is loosely coordinated with the natural sciences and medicine; the arts, social sciences and economics, structurally linked to the core disciplines, also make a significant contribution to the University’s teaching and research profile. With its 260 institutes in nine faculties, RWTH Aachen is among the leading European scientific and research institutions. More than 45,000 students in 158 courses of study were registered in the winter semester of 2018/19, including 10.500 international students from 125 countries.

Teaching at RWTH Aachen University is first and foremost application-oriented. Its graduates are therefore sought-after as junior executives and leaders in business and industry. National rankings and international assessments attest to the RWTH graduates’ marked ability to handle complex tasks, to solve problems constructively in team work and to take on leadership roles. It is therefore not surprising that one in five board members of German corporate groups has studied at RWTH Aachen University. The work of the research centres of RWTH Aachen is closely oriented towards the current needs of industry. This leads to numerous developments that are patented and utilised. The competence centres of RWTH Aachen University achieve very effective cross- subject, inter-faculty collaboration in interdisciplinary networks while maintaining a high level of specialisation and differentiation into distinct subject areas. Through networking, the University is improving its competitive capacity on the international education market and boosting its appeal for highly qualified and highly motivated students from home and abroad.
