Meet our Alumni

There are a number of events and opportunities for alumni of RWTH to stay in contact with their alma mater and their former peers. Many alumni have joined our online communities in the social networks XING or LinkedIn to network with each other and hear about news and events at RWTH. Other alumni get involved as sponsors, for instance in the RWTH Education Fund or as active members in the association “proRWTH”. Within the program “Job Shadowing” alumni give RWTH students a chance to get a glimpse of their job and an exemplary working day. Read how alumni remember their study days in Aachen and what keeps them attached to RWTH in our alumni testimonials.

  • Research Alumni

Our foreign research alumni, mostly former guest professors and postdoc researchers, make up a significant base of our contacts to other academic institutions, research organizations and research-oriented enterprises abroad. Get to know some of our research alumni in our web section “Bright Minds – Our Research Alumni“!

  • Research Alumni Ambassadors

RWTH Research Alumni Ambassadors are international scientists who have conducted long-term research projects or completed a research stay at RWTH Aachen University. Now they actively promote research opportunities at RWTH Aachen at their home institutions, both among their peers and students.  Research Alumni Ambassadors can help inspire and inform others about the many and varied opportunities to pursue studies or conduct research in their respective disciplines, receive funding for projects, and launch collaborative initiatives with former colleagues at RWTH Aachen University.
