RWTH International Guest Student Program - RWTH MEC

You are a mechanical engineering student? You are looking for an exciting study experience abroad? Then join our RWTH International Guest Student Program for an unforgetable time at RWTH Aachen University and brush up your engineering career. You get the chance to write a practical research-oriented Bachelor thesis in a double-tutor system (RWTH Aachen University / your home University) and brush up on some of the subjects required for M.Sc. Programs.

Students in their last year of study with above average achievements from an engineering undergraduate degree program (e.g. Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer and Information Engineering) and sufficient English language skills are allowed to apply for the exchange and qualification program.

RWTH MEC is designed for students in their last Bachelor year who wish to improve on some of the subjects required for the M.Sc. programs and want to write a practical, research oriented Bachelor thesis in a double-tutor system with a professor from RWTH Aachen University and a professor from their home University.

A Master’s program at RWTH requires a very advanced and specialized level of technical knowledge. To obtain this level, the RWTH MEC offers bridging courses, German language courses, as well as close scientific guidance, involvement in practice and research, and intense social support. In our RWTH MEC you can combine this in your last Bachelor year with writing your Bachelor thesis at an RWTH Institute.
