"The RWTH Aachen International Academy was there from the beginning to assist through the process of arriving and living comfortably as much as they could."

We asked one of our recent graduates Mohammad A. Shehadeh, who is recently doing his doctoral studies as a PhD student at the IAM institute of RWTH Aachen University, what state in your mind about ...

Your recent job situation and your future career:

"Amazingly this program gave me the possibility to apply to any job I think about, and I had many chances; but my dream was always to pursue a doctor's degree, and that is what I am doing."

Your choice to study Master's at RWTH Aachen University

"RWTH Aachen has been always one of the top universities in engineering nationally and internationally. Moreover, it has been chosen as an elite university for the last five years along with the main governmental funding; and luckily for me, this year the funding has been renewed for the next five years which will cover the period of my Phd studies hopefully."

Your Study Programme Computer Aided Conception and Production

The study program CAME is a unique program that was designed specifically for students of non-industrial countries in order to help them gain as much as possible of the knowledge required to at least try to do a bit of effort to change that situation in our countries! Unfortunately, most of the graduates of this program remain to work in high-wage and developed countries; fortunately, it might be a good thing to gain experience and then go back to make some change. In all cases, I see no drawback of this program at all; and it gives you a bright and wide future and career wherever and whenever you desire.

Your benefits of the International Academy’s Master Office

The RWTH Aachen International Academy was there from the beginning to assist through the process of arriving and living comfortably as much as they could. And personally, I say they have done an wonderful job. They were always there when students asked for help, from finding accommodations, helping with paperwork and visas, and guidance for life. Thank you IntAc Team.

And last but not least, what is your advice for prospective students

Dear Prospective students,
The German education system is a very challenging and intriguing system; in order to finish and succeed, you have to learn how to be independent and do everything yourself and do it when the time is right without anyone having to tell you so. After acquiring this skill, there is no challenge that you may stumble upon. That is why Germany is one, if not the one, leading countries in the world in engineering.
My advice is that you make a study plan and manage your time accurately and perfectly, if you do that you will be able to finish with great success and speed. Moreover, if you do it smartly, you will definitely be able to be involved in all sorts of extracurricular activities and explore Europe as well.”
