RWTH International Academy / RWTH Aachen University

Introduction

Aachen (Aix-La-Chapelle), the westernmost city in Germany, accommodates not only the Aachen Cathedral, designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, but also one of Germany’s Universities of Excellence.


Study at the Elite University RWTH Aachen


RWTH Aachen University is the largest university of technology in Germany and the most important economic factor of the city. Every year, a large number of international students and scientists come to the university to benefit from its high-quality study programmes and excellent facilities,from which bothare internationally recognized. The proximity of Aachen to the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg and its variety of cultural heritages has placed the University in a unique position for international collaboration with other educational and research institutions as well as with business and industry. The RWTH Aachen University has a long history of close and wide-ranging cooperation with national and international industries and research centers and contributes effectively to the success and development of the German economy with an increasing extension of this role with regard to the European Union.



RWTH Aachen International Academy – The Difference


The RWTH Aachen International Academy is a non-profit subsidiary company of RWTH Aachen University. In close cooperation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering the Academy offers Master programmes, particularly designed to meet the needs of international students. The Academy’s responsibility enfolds organizational, administrative and economic aspects, whereupon the scientific leadership lies with RWTH Aachen University, which awards the academic degree "Master of Science".



Accreditation by ASIIN e. V.


The partner of RWTH Aachen University and RWTH International Academy for certification of quality management systems in systems accreditation is 'ASIIN e.V.' This accreditation agency for degree programmes sets standards for programmes in engineering, computer science, natural sciences, mathematics, and teaching qualification. All master programmes offered in cooperation with the faculty of mechanical engineering of RWTH Aachen University and RWTH International Academy have been accreditated by ASIIN. The accreditation needs to be updated in regularly timeframes to ensure a continously level of quality ensurance and improvement.



Advantages as RWTH Aachen University Student


Students who take part in a Master’s programme at the RWTH International Academy receive an official Master’s Degree of RWTH Aachen University. Naturally they are also officially recognized members of the RWTH Aachen University during their time of study and are eligible to benefit from all advantages and student offerings within the university: to browse and do research in the libraries, to make use of WLAN and software offers, to utilize various sport and leisure-time facilities, etc. Also ask about student discount opportunities for going to theatres, museums and cinemas or for certain telephone and mobile communications providers.

Master's College Physics

Online & Campus Combined Full time 6 weeks October 2017 Germany Aachen

The Master`s College in M.Sc. Physics is able to offer the most excellent preparation for the Master`s degree programme in Physics at the RWTH Aachen University. [+]

The Master`s College in M.Sc. Physics is able to offer the most excellent preparation for the Master`s degree programme in Physics. In addition, social and organisational support is provided throughout the Master`s degree programme. The Master's College was developed by the RWTH International Academy in close cooperation with the Physics Institute and complements the Master's degree programme at the university. The Master's College is designed specifically for students who need to fulfil conditions for admission. A Master’s degree programme at the RWTH Aachen University requires a very advanced and specialized level of theoretical Physics. To obtain this level, the Master's College offers bridging courses, German language courses, as well as close scientific guidance, direct involvement in research, and intense social support. During the first weeks of the Master`s degree programme, plenty of question come up. We guide our students through this difficult time. We offer support with all bureaucratic processes, e.g. opening a bank account or visa extension. During social events, we help to make our students feel comfortable in their new environment. The Master's programme in Physics at RWTH Aachen University requires a profound knowledge of theoretical physics. Every year, RWTH Aachen University receives numerous applications from high-potential students who, however, do not possess the required undergraduate curriculum. Often, national and international students do not completely fulfill the entrance requirements for M.Sc. Physics as their universities do not have as strong a focus on theoretical Physics as the RWTH Aachen does. To these students specifically, the Master's College gives... [-]
