SDG 4: Quality EducationCopyright: © UN
Ensure an inclusive, equitable and high-quality education and promote options of lifelong learning for all
Competencies in the Technical Sciences for Solving Global Challenges
Within the framework of Education for Sustainable Development, various key competencies are formulated that should enable students to think, act and design in terms of sustainable development.
With regard to engineering education, this means an intensive reflection of one's own role and responsibility in the context of sustainable development.
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.
Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Hub
The activities within the RRI Hub promote a socially responsible and sustainable orientation of research, innovation and teaching. In the spirit of an open innovation ecosystem, a cooperation between science and civil society is facilitated, e.g. by providing the local urban society and students with living lab spaces to meet and experiment.
ENHANCE-MOOC "Responsible Innovators of Tomorrow"
The ENHANCE MOOC "Responsible Innovators of Tomorrow" addresses SDGs 4, 10, and 17, preparing students to take on social responsibility in their future careers by addressing topics such as gender and diversity, RRI, and the SDGs, among others.
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.
