IT Strategy of RWTH Aachen University


Not least due to the increasing digitalization of research, teaching and learning, and administration, the University requires a strong IT infrastructure. RWTH Aachen seeks to establish an integrated information management system which optimally supports the University’s processes and procedures. To guide this process, an IT strategy for RWTH Aachen has been developed.


Based on a concept developed by the CIO Advisory Board in close coordination with various steering groups, group representatives, and staff council members, the IT Strategy of RWTH Aachen University has been approved by the Rector’s Office on December 16, 2016.

One of the tasks for the CIO Advisory Board derived from the IT Strategy is to create an IT roadmap as well as a catalogue of services which is effectively coordinates and integrates the services offered by the IT Center, the University Library, and the University Administration.
