Note on the Corona Crisis

Due to the current developments of the coronavirus, no in-person events are allowed at RWTH until further notice. We are already offering some digital formats with the career@home series, enabling contact between students and companies during this period of physical absence.

Digital Career Days

Making contacts despite the current crisis and recruiting RWTH graduates for cour company – this can now be easily achieved remotely by participating in our Digital Career Days. Our video sessions start with ten-minute company pitches, during which students have the opportunity to submit questions via chat. Subsequently, students can meet up with individual companies in dedicated virtual rooms, engaging in a dialogue by video conferencing or via chat. Companies have the opportunity to provide further information and contact details on an online platform, making it possible for students to access company information after the event.

This new format makes it possible to meet up with our talented soon-to-be graduates without the need to travel and with little organisational effort, even in times of crisis. The new format has been develop to compensate for the fact that holding in-person events is currently not possible, but we intend to keep the format a spart of our service offerings in the longer term to complement our face-to-face events. If you are interested in participating in our virtual events or have any comments or quesions, please feel free to contact us by .

Pop Up Career

We would be happy to help you choose the right location and the right time. The cost of the stand depends on the desired size and location. Please contact us if you are interested.

Business Talk

This format specifically targets the group of students on the Dean's List. The Dean’s List is a measure to determine the top five percent best students in each course of study. With the Business Talk program we offer companies the opportunity to reach out to students on the Dean’s List in a discipline-specific context. The company can offer case studies or strategy workshops, for example, and provides the tasks and the trainers themselves. It is at the company's time and expense if it would like to provide the students with refreshments. We are happy to provide contact information for possible caterers. RWTH Aachen University provides the room and invites students on the Dean's List to the event. Students can be invited by course of study. The company decides how many students are to be invited and from which disciplines. We can also arrange for pre-selection by having the students send us an application including a CV. We would then pass these applications on to the company for selection. Costs begin at 1,200 euros plus tax.


Do you have your own ideas about how to best showcase your company at RWTH Aachen? From straight-forward company presentation (career@...) to whole day event (innovation@...), we will gladly offer you our support. For a typical company presentation, for example, we provide you with a room with up to 50 seats for the duration of two hours and we will furthermore promote the event via our online - platforms. The costs amount to 1,000 euros. For a further 500 euros we will additionally advertise the event via our newsletter. We will be happy to provide you with the cost for individualized programs on request.

RWTH Aachen has prepared the infrastructural logistics (restaurant, special conditions) for you and will invite suitable candidates from your desired subject discipline for you.
