SDG 4: Quality Education
Ensure an inclusive, equitable and high-quality education and promote options of lifelong learning for all
Introduction to Scientific Work in Engineering
The course offers an introduction to scientific work by providing a theoretical overview, which is then followed by practical application in the form of a seminar paper. The course lays the foundations for high-quality education and the critical, objective analysis and discussion of scientific questions.
Skills for Social and Sustainable Technology Design
Technology, science, society and the environment are in a reciprocal relationship that poses new challenges for future graduates. The seminar discusses the academic concept of competence as well as the competences that engineers need for sustainable technology design.
BIOS – Cooperative Course in Civil Engineering with Orientation Semester
In the cooperative study programme with the FH Aachen, an inclusive, equitable and high-quality education is promoted and enables especially first generation students to get a better (university) orientation. Furthermore, courses on socially responsible technology development are anchored in the curriculum. An additional eighth semester offers students at RWTH Aachen University the opportunity to gain experience abroad and practical experience and extra-curricular skills shortly before graduation.
Talent Scouting Aachen
Within this project, the talent scouting programme is being researched using the example of Aachen. The aim of the programme is to promote equal educational opportunities of children from families without academic experience in the region of Aachen, Düren, Heinsberg and Euskirchen by identifying talented students and supporting them individually in the transition between school and job/study.
