Dates and Deadlines


In the emerging knowledge society, experts are needed for the design of communication processes who can convey technical facts. The consecutive course of study in Technical Communication at RWTH Aachen University aims to train such transfer specialists.

The course of study is unique in Germany in its nature and structure: As an interdisciplinary course of study it combines a humanities education with an engineering or natural sciences education and creates a bridge between different worlds of thought. This is achieved by means of pronounced interdisciplinary integration and the teaching of skills in two subjects that are very different in terms of content and methodology.
