This section is intended to provide interested applicants and enrolled master students with important information about academics as for example the course's structure as well as rules and regulations in academic matters.
Please find the curricula under the section Program Structure.
Information connectivity (cyber-physical systems) for the entire value chain in real time is one of the new fundamental philosophies of smart factories. Creating intelligent robotic systems requires specialized skills covering a broad range of scientific fields. The development of robotic systems technology poses fundamental questions about design, physical modelling, and control of complex and highly interactive systems.
This program features two main themes:
1) the optimal application of robots
2) the development and construction of new robotic systems.
Bridging gaps between engineering disciplines, Robotic Systems Engineering offers you a unique and multidisciplinary learning environment that will enable you to develop innovative and intelligent robotic solutions and systems to meet today's most pressing global challenges: industrial productivity, energy efficiency, environmental responsibility, health care issues, and mobility services.
All RWTH International Academy Master's degree programs start with the winter semester in early October of each year.
The German academic year is made up of a winter and a summer semester. Lectures are held until the middle of February in the winter semester and until the middle of July in the summer semester. Most exams are held in the lecture-free period (mid February to the end of March/mid July to the end of September).
For more info, check the RWTH Aachen University Academic Calendar.

All courses and examinations at the University are subject to the General Examination Regulations. This legal document together with your course's specific Examination Regulation form the legal basis of any program offered by the University. These important documents determine the scope of your studies and inform about all rules and regulations regarding admission, exams, course structure, master thesis, etc.
The Robotic Systems Engineering Examination Regulation will be available here soon.
All matters concerning examinations are dealt with by the ZPA - the Central Examination Office. You can go to the ZPA with questions relating:
