EEQuS conducts a survey to identify reasons and casual relations that courses failure rates and obstacles on the way to a successful graduation. The project goal is to explore specifics of studying at the faculty of civil engineering and to expand the internal instruments of RWTH Aachen University. The survey instruments, recommendations for action and measures resulting from the project should supplement the internal instruments of faculty quality management of teaching in the future.

BIOS – Cooperative Course in Civil Engineering with Orientation Semester

BIOS is the result of the successful project experiences with the "Good start of studies in engineering". The eight-semester bachelor's course is aimed at students who want to get their bearings in the field of civil engineering between the two universities. There is a clear focus on the topic of socially responsible technology design.

Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries Copyright: Cluster of Excellence

The GDI is represented in two sub-projects within the Cluster of Excellence. Within the sub-project "Equal Opportunities", the GDI is researching the implementation of a diversity management approach in complex organisational structures. The sub-project D1 "Integrated Usage" places human users and workers, who are a crucial component of social-technical production systems, in the centre of attention.

Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) Hub

The aim of the RRI Hub is to become a nucleus for a sustainable and socially responsible orientation of teaching and research. The hub provides a platform and creates momentum for existing and future initiatives and projects while also enhancing the involvement of civil society and politics. The RWTH aims to establish an extensive cooperation between science and civil society, which not only contributes to more mutual transparency and acceptance, but also offers socially responsible solutions for complex problems.

SFB sub-project Equal Opportunities

Within the context of the Collaborative Research Center/Transregio 188 "Damage-controlled forming processes", the GDI is investigating the implementation of diversity management in engineering research networks. In particular, the application and sustainability of the anti-bias approach is being investigated and further developed in a target group-adaptive manner.

The Talentscouting Aachen project is evaluated by the GDI. In the framework of this, an analysis of the processes and impacts of the Talentscouting Aachen will be accomplished.

Talentscouting Aachen is a collaborative project of the RWTH Aachen University and the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences. The main objective is to encourage pupils/students from families without an academic background in the region of Aachen, Düren, Heinsberg and Euskirchen regarding their aspired educational paths.
