Campus Melaten represents the first expansion stage of the RWTH Aachen Campus. Eleven research clusters are being created in different stages on an area of 473,000 square meters.

Since 2009, six initial clusters have been realized on Campus Melaten:

  • Bio-Medical Engineering Cluster
  • Sustainable Energy Cluster
  • Photonics Cluster
  • Production Engineering Cluster
  • Heavy Duty Drives Cluster
  • Smart Logistics Cluster

Restaurants, shopping facilities, and service providers integrate the campus into public life. Vincerola GmbH already looks after up to 80 children in its bilingual daycare center in the park on Campus Boulevard. In addition, Techniker Krankenkasse and Sparkasse Aachen each have a branch on the boulevard. The Forckenbeck and Boulevard 30 restaurants are the first dining concepts on the campus. Finally, a total of 285 temporary student housing units have been created on Campus Park since fall 2015.
