General Information on PhD

Graduates in front of the main building

The traditional way to obtain a PhD is the candidate's integration into the teaching and research activities of an institute or chair, thereby working on an individual research project under the supervision of the candidate's coach and mentor. Typically the candidate is contracted on a time-limited basis as a teaching and research assistant. She or he is offered various training possibilities at the RWTH Aachen University in order to be well prepared for further job-related tasks.
