Visit from our partner university Universidad del Valle de Guatemala
Last Monday we had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Victor Ayerdi Bardales from Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG) to RWTH International Academy. UVG is a renowned private university in the capital of Guatemala with a strong international orientation.
In this year's German Engineering College, a first scholarship holder from our partner university is participating. He will use the program to further his orientation and start one of our English-language master's programs next year. His favorite program is already the M.Sc. Smart Production Engineering.
A great way into the Master's Degree Programs at RWTH International Academy
Debora Greis, Head of Master's Degree Programs and responsible for quality assurance, gave our guest a detailed presentation of the diverse Master's Degree Programs at RWTH International Academy. The combination of practice-oriented, modern subject areas and exciting content create a special interest among UVG students.
The possibilities of individual qualification programs prove to be valuable for those who want to prepare for our master's programs in Aachen. We are now in the process of determining which specific achievements can be recognized at UVG in the future, in order to make it easier for students to enter the different programs.
New ideas for cooperation in the automotive sector
Another motivation for Dr. Victor Ayerdi's visit was his interest in developing a personalized Summer School for UVG students: the vision is that every year a selected group will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of alternative drive systems and future-oriented mobility aspects.
In an inspiring conversation with Mareike Band, Head of of Short Term Programs, and Cassandra Dürbeck, Program Manager, we defined the specific content and framework to offer participants an unforgettable and enriching experience.
Another highlight: A visit to RWTH institutes and factories
The topic of the Automotive Summer School was the reason to visit the involved partners at the Institute Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components (PEM). Here, we exchanged ideas about the future of electromobility. Our thanks go to Tobias Robben and Jonas Gorsch, who provided exciting insights into the state-of-the-art machines and projects at PEM.
In order to gain a more detailed impression of the laboratories and teaching content of our Master's Degree Programs, the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University also opened its doors.
