E.ON Energy Research Center


The RWTH Aachen E.ON Energy Research Center (ERC) realizes its international orientation through the "International Energy Cooperation Program" (IECP). E.ON ERC and RWTH Aachen target collaborations with universities and research institutions at the international level through this program. Within the framework of thie collaboration, the exchange of students and researchers (research internships for Bachelor, Master, and doctoral students) is particularly promoted.

The following partners can already gained for collaboration:

  • FREEDM Systems Center
    North Carolina State University, Arizona University, Florida State University,
    Missouri University of Science and Technology and Florida A&M University

Research projects of three to six months in length in the field of energy, analogous to the E.ON Research Center focuses, can be completed through a student exchange. Final projects or theses can also be completed at E.On ERC.

Students from Faculties 4, 5, 6, and 8, who are interested in completing a research project at one of the named institutions, should submit the following application documents to the Mr. Torsten Blut of the RWTH Aachen International Office:

  • Application for a stay abroad
  • Transcript
  • CV
  • Cover letter including description of research interests
  • Proof of language skills
    • English skills (fluent)
    • Basic skills in the country's national language (if not English)*

Students in neighboring subject areas, such as environmental engineering, can also apply. Please use the E.on ERC website, to find out what topic areas are relevant to energy as a research field.
