I am Master student of RWTH Aachen. one of the best university in world that’a what other people thinks but that’s not true. My course is on Railway engineering which duration is 2 years. There are many subjects they teach on railways and only field of Electronics field. Here i observed one thing is that people taking 4-5 years to complete their course so most of students stuck here. If i share my opinion on student life so it is not so good. Getting accommodation is not an easy task, Poor transportation system. One thing is good here is only professor are super genius. From my point of please not choose this university .View more
With over 50 thousand students, RWTH Aachen University is one of the best and largest Universities in Germany. I am currently studying Master’s in Railway Systems Engineering since 2020 at this University. The university buildings are scattered in a small but beautiful place called Aachen. Every year, more than 5 thousand students come to this University from various parts of the world and hence finding accommodation in a student dorm is quite difficult. The university is located on the western border of Germany. Netherlands and Belgium are very close to Aachen. The university organizes good intercultural and sports activities. There are paid courses as well as free courses for Master’s and Bachelor’s programs depending on your interests. Finding a part-time job is quite hard in Aachen, and students prefer working outside Aachen. Cologne, which is one of the major cities in Germany, is close to Aachen. Students enrolled in RWTH Aachen, get a semester ticket, through which they can travel the entire NRW state for free. This includes Cologne, Bonn, Düsseldorf and Dortmund. With high-quality education and top-notch teaching faculty, I would recommend this university to everyone.View more
My study programme is called Railway systems Engineering. The study programme is a bit difficult but the way, it is organised by professors, is remarkable. The Infrastructure is state-of-the-art and all the facilities are there like sports, Gym, etc. There is only one problem that I want to mention, departments of the specific fields are located at a certain distance from each other so, sometimes it feels hectic to switch departments. Overall, I would strongly suggest choosing this university for getting a better career.View more
There is no doubt that my university is one of the best in Germany. Ranks admit that and all numbers say that as well, but no one talks about how much stress the student program is actually causing. It is full of theory and very little practical hands-on on what you should be doing in labs and so on. I enjoyed their facilities very much. It is unbelievably huge and spread out across the whole city. The location of the University seems too far from the typical “city-like” cities, but I have to admit it might have been the best thing to ever happen to any student. The fact that this whole city is for students only, and having the access to cross the border and go to Netherlands or Belgium at any time throughout semesterticket, it is unbelievable.View more
As you might guess from the title itself the huge plus of this programme at my university is a general overview of the whole process of producing vehicles. Do not get tricked by ” general “.
Yes, you are given a general idea but every course in itself is highly detailed. In this very digital century, I believe we all have to agree about being specified is vital but at the same time if you’re lacking a general idea such as other department responsibilities then you do not have a solid connection with them. And without the connection, your ideas are not gonna represent your work as you might want.
So RWTH Aachen Automotive Engineering gives you the general but also the specific details in each department itself.
I believe I do not have to mention that more 50 per cent of the patent related to the futuristic topic “self-driving” belongs to Germany and it’s the heart of the industry.
I took the condensed matter physics class, but the professor was not on top of the materials. She could not explain the concepts clearly, and when asked questions, she missed the key points. Luckily we got help from other senior students, otherwise, the whole class would have been wasted.View more
Great facilities, diverse resources and knowledge base. The various subjects offers can be taken advantage of to hone your skills. Good tie ups with the industry and amazing student life. The city is affordable to live in and student life is quite vibrant with lots of opportunities for fun as well as learning.View more
RWTH Aachen is known for its very good education in engineering related studies, such as Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The university has a lot of good professors that have experience from work in the industry. Exams are quite challenging, so that the degree is seen as a very good qualification in Germany, and also abroad in Europe. A negative point are the very large classes, especially during the Bachelor degree. In my class, there were 200-300 students, while in other classes it went up to 1000 students in one lecture which makes it tough to actually listen. As most classes are not obligatory, many students do not attend classes in the Bachelor study anymore.
Besides the study, Aachen is a very beautiful city and very enjoyable. The university brings a lot of life to the city, as the number of students is quite large (ca. 50,000). You will definitely not get bored.
University has a lot of international exposure, encourages students to tackle the challenges with proper study guidance. offers a wide variety of research-oriented programs. A lot of opportunities for Scholarships as most of the researches is funded by OEM’s, some by the government, and sometimes even by professors.
A lot of fun activities involved apart from studies. Opportunities to develop one’s extracurricular activities apart from studies. Work culture exposure through student internship opportunities. University provides excellent guidance to career growth even after studies.
I am a first-year student and I really enjoy studies and life in Aachen. There are many students in the Uni and hence many people to get known to. The Campus is spread all around the city. It is very easy to get a room in the dormitory, the city is not that big, but there are many other famous German cities around, you can get there for free by train.View more
