On February 15, 2017, the graduate survey closed.

We invited about 6,500 graduates in the class of 2015, that is, students who completed their degree in the winter term of 2014/15 or the summer term of 2015, to participate in the survey.

RWTH Aachen and the graduate survey team would like to thank all participants very much!

Why Have a Graduate Survey?

RWTH Aachen is convinced that graduating from RWTH Aachen is an excellent ticket in the job market. This conviction is supposed to be tested by the RWTH Graduate Survey. The goal of the project is to use graduates' responses to improve the quality of academics. While the first survey, completed as students are entering the job market, greatly serves to improve the quality of academic services, a follow-up survey offers valuable information about RWTH students' preparation for the first five years of their career. The repeat survey is planned for 2015. Initial results reportsare available to download.

The survey is part of a nationwide implemented research porject, and is implemented annually with the support of the International Center for University Research at Kassel.
