A Good Academic Start in Engineering

In April 2015, RWTH Aachen and FH Aachen kicked off the collaborative project "A Good Academic Start in Engineering." In the project interested individuals can enroll at one of the two universities and try it out for a semester, to see whether they like the subject. The project is oriented towards high school graduates but also individuals at vocational schools and students interested in changing their course of study.

A fundamental program in math, physics, computer science, and mechanics is offered including an elective program with regular offers from the engineering courses of study involved. Participants get to know not only their academic subjects but also everyday University life and their fellow students. There are 200 spots available.
