Brazil: Ciência sem Fronteiras – Science Without Borders

The Chinese-German University of Applied Sciences is an educational model project of the Chinese Ministry of Education (MoE) and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). In cooperation with a consortium of German Universities of Applied Sciences, a German-Chinese University of Applied Sciences is being established at Tongji University in Shanghai based on the model of German "Fachhochschulen" (Universities of Applied Sciences). The goals of the project are the practical training of engineers with interdisciplinary knowledge, international competencies and problem-solving skills for the benefit of the economy of both countries.

At this time, four Bachelor's degree programmes are being offered: Industrial Engineering, Mechatronics, Vehicle Services / Customer Support and Facility Management. As one of the consortium universities, the FH Aachen is responsible for the setup of the Mechatronics degree programme. After the fulfilment of the requirements defined by both sides, a Bachelor's Degree from the CDHAW as well as the German partner institution is awarded.

The range of courses is open for students of both partner countries. Further information can be found on the CDHAW website

FH cooperates with Université Moulay Ismaïl

In cooperation with the Centro de Ingeniería y Desarollo Industrial (CIDESI), the FH Aachen offers the degree programme Mechatronics with a dual German and Mexican Master's degree. The programme was accredited by the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) and Public Education Ministry (SEP) in Mexico and has been added as a "Consolidated Programme" to the National Register for Quality Postgraduate Programs (PNPC).

The degree programme is based on the international Master's degree programme in Mechatronics, which has existed for several years now. Students spend their first semester at CIDESI in Queretaro/Mexico, and their second and third semester at FH Aachen. They can complete their Master's thesis either in Mexico or in Germany. German students are very welcome to this German-Mexican degree programme as well.

By signing the "Memorandum of Agreement", the Rector of the FH Aachen and the President of the Polytechnic of Namibia have agreed on a partnership between their universities. The cooperation in the field of civil engineering aims mainly at improving the tertiary education of Namibian students of civil engineering. The ambitious project is supported and funded by the Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ). Every year 5-6 students of the Polytechnic of Namibia spend an academic year at the FH Aachen. Students of the FH Aachen have the opportunity to carry out a combined study and practical semester in Namibia. Professors of the Faculty of Civil Engineering regularly give lectures at the Polytechnic of Namibia.

ROS Summer School

Due to the Corona Virus this summer school will not take place in 2020. The next ROS summer school will be in 2021.

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, in cooperation with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information technology, has been offering an international ROS Summer School during the semester break since 2012, focusing on the area of mobile autonomous robotics and enjoying an ever-increasing popularity ever since. Here, the basics as well as additional topics in the areas of perception, localisation and navigation of mobile robots are worked on. Moreover, everything is presented in English on a fairly high technical level.

European Intensive Programme Nuclear Chemistry

Due to the Corona Virus this summer school will not take place in 2020. The next 3D Printing summer school will be in 2021.

3D Printing is about to revolve the way we design and make products. Therefore it is essential for those technically interested in this field to understand the capability, the challenges and the drawbacks of this technology. While this technology marks a hype even in private areas like journals and television it is barely taught in engineering education.

Our summer school provides a comprehensive, theoretical approach to 3D technology combined with hands-on experience.

After one week of delving into the 3D printing topic, you will be able to

  • build your own 3D printer
  • start printing your own portfolio and prototypes,
  • know how to handle the data-chain for printer operation,
  • understand the special challenges of different model types, and
  • obtain reproducible parts.

Our summer school is presented in a relaxed atmosphere where the instructors

  • are always available to answer questions
  • motivate participants to get involved
  • give feedback
  • make sure that’s there is also fun and action.

The students are welcome to bring along a project of their own to be solved during the summer school.

After having completed your 3D Printing Summer School, you will receive a FH Aachen Certificate in 3D Printing.

Materialize your own ideas - if you can image it - you can print it!

ROS Summer School

For everyone who would like to spend about 4 weeks of the summer in Aachen improving their language skills, learning about Germany and its people, and exploring Aachen and some of the neighbouring countries (e.g. trips to Paris and Amsterdam), the FH Aachen is once again offering German Language Summer Courses.

In July and August participants from all over the world will be given the opportunity to join an intensive course on one of various levels (beginners to advanced) and improve their German.

Please find the details on the website of the Aachen Language School (Sprachenakademie Aachen)!

Industrie 4.0 Summer School

The summer school “Industrie 4.0” gives an insight into the objectives and strategies of Industrie 4.0, shows the current status of activities and provides information on how to benefit from the ideas linked to Industrie 4.0 today. In addition to a theoretical introduction to Industrie 4.0, the main technologies and processes for the implementation of Industrie 4.0 will be introduced and then addressed in greater detail in a workshop. The aim is actually to enable digitisation. Starting from the process itself, the digitisation of processes will be introduced and then expanded on using hands-on examples. A model system will be used to demonstrate the technological possibilities.

The Freshman Programme is the preparatory year for the Internationally Oriented Studies (IOS), three-year Bachelor's degree programmes in Applied Chemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Physical Engineering. It is a unique pilot project at the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, at Campus Jülich, approved by the Ministry of Innovation, Sciences, Research, and Technology of the Federal State North Rhine-Westfalia.

The language of instruction is English, the entrance exam of the Freshman Programme can supersede other university admission requirements.

Students from all over the world study in small groups and live in a unique intercultural environment, while preparing for a future as engineers in today’s global economy.
