In the context of continuing education the RWTH Aachen University is involved by providing the scientific direction and lecturers in particular formats. The RWTH International Academy plans the programmes.
Cooperation with the University
Partners in Spreading Knowledge
Thanks to the close connection with the RWTH Aachen University, the RWTH International Academy as its subsidiary, can draw from the University’s whole scope of subjects. It thereby conceives scientifically sound and practice oriented programmes that are also in sync with market demands. These close ties to labs, research facilities, and testing centres make continuing education an exceptional experience.
The RWTH International Academy offers an array of further services to professionalise and facilitate the activities of the departments, chairs, and institutes of the RWTH Aachen University, as well as the clinics of the University Hospital, in imparting knowledge.
Often, public procurements for projects explicitly request the incorporation of concepts for the transfer of knowledge, so as to lastingly realise project results. The research findings acquired in the funded projects are, most often, subsequently implemented in continuing education and applied in seminars, conferences and e-learning sessions. Thereby, the findings attain a practical value. Through the incorporation of transfer concepts, research projects are expanded and upgraded. Their long-term effectiveness is enhanced.
As a partner for funded projects, the Academy can be of assistance in the context of knowledge transfer, and in determining the needs for continuing education measures. Our experience in the field of seminars enables us to craft customised and certified formats of continuing education developed from research findings and even to provide learning platforms based on the standards of the RWTH Aachen University, or the respective business sector. The conception design of the curricula, its conversion into modules and, if need be, accreditation, the choice of media didactics, and even including the realisation, can all be carried out through the Academy as a project partner.
The Academy’s Conference Office assists the departments and institutes of the RWTH Aachen University and the University Hospital in planning and realising symposia. As a service provider, the Conference Office carries out all necessary organisational measures, from event logistics, the accompanying programme, financial management, management of participants and speakers, to exhibition planning. By commissioning and coordinating professional contractors, we can offer a complete and comprehensive package that can also be booked in modules, according to the individual requirements and needs of the particular institute.
