NOW ONLINE! Since 2015, we have been providing you with useful information about our IT services for your studies or your work at RWTH Aachen University on our blog. With fun & facts on various topics, we lighten up your everyday life at university. After seven years, a relaunch was due and our beloved blog got a facelift. What changes can you see?

Our relaunch includes revisions to the design, and technical specifications.

We’re making our blog fit for the future! – A complete makeover

In order for you to recognize our blog, we did not change much of the design and of course continue to use the theme from the RWTH blog world. You can find this design on all RWTH blog pages and of course we don’t want to miss this recognition value.

For comparison we have a before and after picture for you. Before we could finally reveal the new design today, we wrapped the new title image up for you. But now the secret is out for all curious readers!

On the other hand, the technical specifications have changed in the background. We have added some modern elements, reworked the sidebar for navigation and installed up-to-date plugins in the background. In addition, we have developed a new SEO concept (search engine optimization) to reach even more interested people via the search engines. Social media icons take you directly to our channels on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.

The new structure of our blog provides a much better overview, so that you can find the desired information and articles even faster and easier. The menu will take you to newly created pages. Under News you will find the latest blog entries. On the About Us page we introduce ourselves and the blog and on the Join Us page you will be guided to current job postings. We are always looking for new creative and dedicated colleagues. Take a look and become part of the largest employer in the city region of Aachen.

Thanks to the redesigned topic categories in the right sidebar you will find everything for your individual needs without any detours.

Among all these categories you will surely find the article you are interested in. Just click through!

You are looking for a special topic? Then use the search function at the top of the menu. There you can enter a keyword for your search and you will get a list of all articles that have been written so far.
