“A Good Academic Start in Engineering”: Since 2015, the joint project between FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences and RWTH Aachen has provided orientation for prospective students in the engineering subjects. Registration for the first phase is open until February 5, 2017.


“A Good Academic Start in Engineering” offers prospective students the possibility to register for the 2018 summer semester at both universities simultaneously and to attend regular classes. Participants can find out for themselves which university and what subject, including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechatronics, and civil engineering, best suits them.

So far, more than 430 prospective students have participated in the program.
