Summer Schools

We turn engineering training into an experience!

Eight Programmes - One Summer

The RWTH International Academy works closely together with the International Office of the RWTH Aachen University, the Language Center of the RWTH Aachen University and various institutes of the RWTH Aachen University to offer a perfect mix of technical study and cultural experience. Seven technical courses and one German language course offer international students the opportunity to take part in excellent science and research at RWTH Aachen University.
The following programmes are offered:

A collection of videos,pictures and testimonials provide a great first impression about the summer schools at the RWTH Aachen University.

Each of the eight Summer School courses is individually designed for international undergraduate students who want to get to know the RWTH Aachen University and the city of Aachen firsthand. Therefore, the courses are based on the following three pillars:

I. Excellent Science and Research

For each of the Summer School programmes, the content of the courses is determined by the individual RWTH Aachen University institute that conducts the lectures and laboratory courses. These courses are characterised by their interdisciplinary and innovative approach. This alliance between scientific study and practical experience is enhanced by additional engineering site visits and lectures from experts.

II. German Language and Culture

Most Summer School programmes include an intensive German language course provided by the Language Centre of the RWTH Aachen University. The experienced German teachers take great care of the international students and convey not only German language skills but also a sense of German culture.

III. Social Events – Have fun while studying

While participating in one of the intensive academic programmes offered by the university’s institutes, students will experience German culture hands - on through an extensive leisure time programme including German cultural events, excursions to cities nearby, sporting events, get-togethers with students from various International Master’s programmes, intercultural events, intercultural communication workshops and a lot more – enjoy your stay!
