Ich will noch viel mehr wissen - und vielleicht mal studieren!
Ich will immer wieder Neues kennenlernen!
Ich finde Wissenschaft toll und will Forschern über die Schulter schauen!
Ich will experimentieren und auch schon forschen!
Ich will schon jetzt die Zukunft denken!

A Little MINT for Everyday Life!

RWTH Aachen's profil has been always been characterized by the fields mathematics, informatics, natural sciences, and above all, technology - the so called MINT subjects, that are now advertised together nationwide, in order to fight a future lack of specialists. For this reasons, we at RWTH Aachen, offer special projects in these fields for pupils through the framework of our MINT-Cooperation Program, among others:


Something for Girls!

Some of our offers are targeted specifically towards girls, in order to give them a glance at the multitude of possibilities in the technological and scientific fields and to get them interested in and excited about them:


Something for Those Particularly Motivated!

We wish to target particularly talented pupils with these programs. There are offers for various age groups and in widely varying subject areas. Some are open to all interested individuals and some are possible through registration in collaboration wtih the schools and teachers, and are specially funded by endowments.


And Something Else!

Aside from our own programs, we at RWTH Aachen, work with other partners in the framework of schools.

In special laboratories for pupils, that are situated at RWTH Aachen, school knowledge can be applied and further developed. Partnerships have developed between individual institutes and schools in the city and Aachen region. Additionally, RWTH Aachen collaborates with various networks and institutions, in order to promote further extracurricular learning. We also support and promote the participation of pupils in different regional and national competitions, or are involved the implementation of these.

Those who wish to understand university language a bit better, can take a look at the UniDuden we have created.
