150 years of RWTH also means 150 years of a successful internationalization strategy. The University benefits from a global network consisting of partnerships, cooperations, and liaison offices. But it was not until October 2019 that a liaison office was opened in Seoul, South Korea. This was made possible thanks to RWTH Representative and President of the RWTH Alumni Association in South Korea, Dr. Josef Kim, who generously provided space and resources for the office.

In order to further boost RWTH's reputation in the country and strengthen ties with its partners, friends, and alumni there, a ceremony marking RWTH’s 150th anniversary will be held in Seoul on March 20, 2020. The main feature of the ceremony will be a lecture on RWTH’s 150-year history by Professor Dr. Manfred Martin, Rector's delegate for Cooperations With South Korea. South Korean doctoral jubilarians will also be honored as part of the celebration.
