A Partnership with Tradition

The close collaboration between industry and RWTH Aachen has existed since the university was founded in the 19th century. Industry partners offered significant financial support to RWTH Aachen in its development phase. One of their goals was to support the education of engineers for mining in North Rhine-Westphalia. Highly developed collaborative efforts with industry partners were thus established at RWTH Aachen early on, but we don't stop there, but are instead always thinking ahead and continuously developing these partnerships with the future in mind.
