Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Department of Biology is characterised by applied and basic research which has a strong tradition of inter-disciplinary work. There are close teaching and research partnerships with the Universitätsklinikum Aachen, the Helmholtz Centres in Jülich and Leipzig, the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biotechnology and Applied Ecology (IME), the Leibniz Institute DWI and the RWTH Departments of Engineering and Geosciences. Students are integrated early on in active research through, among other things, UROP placements for undergraduates.
  • Other special features
    All of the facilities responsible for student guidance and support such as the departmental student organisation, Examination Committee, academic guidance, student mentor and study rooms are located in shared wing of the Biology building. This means very short distances and fast, unbureaucratic help.
