Coordination Office of Projects for Pupils

  various flyers RWTH Aachen

A broad range of services should pique motivated school students' interests, increase their potential, and identify their weaknesses, in order to support them in the process of choosing their studies and career. Early interest in RWTH Aachen's topics also promotes identification of the university as a possible future research, study, and training location.

Our Responsibilities

In accordance with the intentions of "RWTH 2020 Excellence in Teaching and Learning – Together we are improving the learning conditions and quality of teaching", respective possibilities should be collectively presented and made accessibly to prospective students before their studies. For this reason a coordination office was established which supervises, adapts, and supports the various services across the university. It is funded by the "Gemeinsamen Bund-Länder-Programms für bessere Studienbedingungen und mehr Qualität in der Lehre“ through the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

Externally the Office of Projects for Pupils as the contact person offers direct information and personal assistance in choosing a project - in person and directly via email or phone. Simultaneously we are the direct contact for collaboration between schools and the university, in order to strengthen application and research oriented lessons or extracurricular learning. Important news and reports about various projects or about the individual events will regularly be gathered in newsletters and social networks for various target groups.

We also gladly provide support in planning and orchestrating an internship here at RWTH Aachen. Additionally, we will provide institute visits and subject specific presentations at RWTH Aachen or for school lessons or will help find the correct contact person for your questions.

The Office of Projects for Pupils also internally outlines a grouping of interests and services to all members and various collaborative partners within RWTH Aachen. It serves as a cross-secion for efficient collaboration and a collective appearance. For this reason, a platform has been created and is maintained, on which important concerns and experiences are documented, and information and materials can be posted.
