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 both are internationally recognized. The proximity of Aachen to the Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxembourg and its variety of cultural heritages have 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 a 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 continuous level of quality assurance 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 from 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.

In an increasingly networked world of work, future graduates in specialized fields of employment are immensely sought after. Through three individual specialization courses, prospective students can obtain technology-related qualifications in a highly interdisciplinary Master program at RWTH Aachen University.The English-taught course "Networked Production Engineering” (NPE) includes three focus areas (tracks), which offer students the opportunity for specialization in their field of interest: Additive Manufacturing, Smart Factory, and E-Mobility. Additive Manufacturing Additive manufacturing processes are among the major future topics in production technology that will significantly change the processes of product development and production. Complex metal parts successively built up from metal powder with a laser at lightning speed, and molds made in a 3D printer from sand and a binding liquid - these are examples of previously unattainable additive manufacturing methods that can innovate production chains.There is a high level of industrial, intersectional and international significance attached to additive manufacturing processes in production technology, which is closely linked to strong demand for qualified personnel in the area. Smart Factory The digitalization of production in "Smart Factories" focuses on the long-term goal of networking all plants, products and processes of a self-organizing factory. As a central component of the future-oriented project "Industry 4.0", it will be used in numerous sectors such as chemistry, automotive, electrical and mechanical engineering. In Germany alone, an estimated additional 80 billion euros in net product will be created by 2025, according to forecasts of by BITKOM and Fraunhofer Institute for Work Management and Organization.The implementation of...
