Three elaborate and unique events are the highlights of the anniversary program:

Lernen. Forschen. Machen. The Science Evening

In spring, a Science Evening will be held to develop impulses for the university of the future. Under the title "The New Fiction of Good Science - In Need of a Paradigm Shift?", international experts will come together to question the university system in unusual discussion formats and then propose viable solutions.

Lernen. Forschen. Machen. The Festival

What RWTH is capable of, conducts research on, and is involved in, will be on display, heard, grasped, felt, and certainly experienced to the full at the big University Festival on Saturday, June 20, 2020. RWTH showcases itself to the public on the central areas and buildings of Campus Central, for example on Templergraben and the C.A.R.L. lecture hall complex. Admission to the event is free. There will be a nice finish to the evening with music on a large stage on Templergraben.

Lernen. Forschen. Machen. The Show

RWTH will celebrate the University's actual start – the first lecture at what was then Rheinisch-Westphälische Polytechnische Schule in October 1870 – exactly 150 years later, on October 10, 2020, with a big show for all invited guests.
