Since 2002, RWTH Aachen University has been offering particularly high-performing students in secondary school the opportunity to take part in complete courses in selected subjects before graduating high school. The aim is for students to reflect on their decision to study and decide on an individually suitable course of study.
Before starting to attend courses, an advisory meeting must be arranged with the Coordination Office for Student Programmes. The coordination office provides support in planning, organising participation, assessing requirements and deciding on the subject of study. An appointment is then made with the relevant departmental coordinator so that subject-specific questions, among other things, can be clarified. The departmental coordinators also provide information on the participation modalities of the individual departments as well as on the requirements for the recognition of examination results.

Industry of the future
The topics that will become more relevant for geoscientists in the next decades are diverse and challenging at the same time. Due to the change to a sustainable energy policy, completely new topics and questions arise, such as the final disposal of nuclear waste or CO2 storage. Other important topics are energy storage, battery technology and the associated lithium extraction. read more
