Special features regarding teachingProblem-solving teaching; basic, scientific training, which is based on the latest research in the field of material, raw material and process innovations; close cooperation with industry: Excursions, joint research projects; practical orientation; very good supervision ratio enables the interests and special skills of the students to be promoted; an international study course supports the development of soft skills such as communication skills, teamwork, foreign language skills and social skills.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe Master's degree course in Metallurgical Engineering is taught completely in English and contributes significantly to internationalisation. As the teaching content is integrated with that of the degree courses held in German, students on these courses can also benefit from the international orientation. Additionally, exchange programmes such as ERASMUS+ and departmental collaborations have been and continue to be expanded with a view to fostering and increasing student mobility. In the field of research, our Chairs cooperate with a large number of international partners.

Special features regarding the equipmentThe nine institutes in the department have highly modern technical equipment for basic research and practice-based research into materials. Students benefit from the equipment in the laboratories and workshops in a wide variety of internal practicals at the university. From the PVD coating chamber to the 3D laser doppler anemometer and the top-blown converter through to access to the Ernst Ruska centre (electron microscopy) and to the Jugene mainframe at Forschungszentrum Jülich, students and researchers equally benefit from innovative equipment for material analysis.
Special features regarding research activitiesThe department participates in large research associations: 2 Clusters of Excellence (Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries, Tailor-Made Fuels from Biomass), 1 EU Cluster (KIC) and 3 Collaborative Research Centres (Plasma, Steel Ab Initio, Precision Manufacturing by Controlling Melt). There is close cooperation via JaraEnergy, StrucMat and CorroNet with the Jülich Research Centre, DLR, DecHEMA and MPI. There are two affiliated institutes: ACCESS and ÖFI, as well as collaborations within RWTH: 2 profile areas (Materials Science and Engineering, Production Engineering), AixViPMaP, Aec, AKR, CHAMP.
Support for foundersIn the specialisation area in Economics, special events in the field of entrepreneurship can be taken. As part of these modules, participation in a business plan competition is possible. Furthermore, numerous block events, excursions and similar events offer various networking opportunities for those interested in starting a business.
