Are you looking for new insights through the application of scientific methods? FH Aachen offers you a wide range of cooperation, research and development opportunities! We support your activities and project ideas along with scientists from our 11 in-house institutes and 3 affiliated institutes.
If you have any questions, the heads of the institutes will be available to answer these directly.
In-house institutes of FH Aachen are facilities of faculties and central institutions which are active in the field of research and development, artistic design and/or in the field of teaching and study. They meet the requirements for scientific institutions pursuant to § 29 HG in the version of the HRG dated 30.11.2014 (GV.NRW p. 752).
FH Aachen affiliated institutes are facilities outside the university which perform tasks that cannot be provided by the university on its own.
