A group of RWTH Alumni of varied ages – having completed their Diplomas anywhere from 1952 to 2015 – met up at the "Kitzmann Bräuschänke" in Erlangen. Most of the alumni who were present work at the renowned businesses in the area, such as Siemens or Bosch, or also at the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen/Nürnberg. "I organized the meet-up, because I wanted to meet RWTH alumni from other companies and other work areas, and to strengthen the RWTH network further away from Aachen," said initiator Sarah Estarabadi, who is employed at Siemens in the Energy Management Division. At the social gathering ideas for further meet-ups were also discussed. In Spring of next year, for instance, there is talk of going on a hike in Franconian Switzerland.
