In Germany, the internship is often a fixed component of most academic studies. The label “Made in Germany” is known and honored worldwide.The combination of theorectical and practical learning is an important factor of Germany’s economic success. Nowadays, many other countries plan to implement the dual principle into their own educational system. Furthermore, it implies a close connection between universities and the industry. The RWTH Aachen University particular holds a traditionally close relationship with the industry.
The Dual Post-Graduate Studies programme of the RWTH International Academy represents itself by high-level learning targets. Besides latest applied-orientated knowledge in Supply Chain Management, Industry 4.0, Innovation Management, Intercultural Training, Application Training and a German Language Course, it’s our goal to further strengthen your team ability, your intercultural competence and your sense of responsibility. By attending our programme, we offer you to grow personally and to extend your technical know-how and your management skills.The implementation of interdisciplinary and engineering training methods will enable you to an independent and pracitical-related way of working. Furthermore, you will be encouraged to solve complex entrepreneurial and technical problems. As an intern, you will reflect your actions and behavior related to the company´s environment, external and internal processes and conditions. Therefore, you can prove your theoretical knowledge on its practical applicability. And you will learn: theory and practice don’t exist only one by one, but are rather closely connected with each other.
From your first day in Aachen, you will be supported by the International Academy. Our study programme begins with an introduction stage which prepares you for your following internship. After the introduction stage, your internship in your selected German organisation begins. At the end of your internship, you will finish your stay in Germany with an exam- and certification week in Aachen. We will have a great last week together with closing courses, final exams, social events and your graduation ceremony.
