About the City: 

Aachen is the city where the idea of Euroavia originated from and where it was founded back in 1959.

It is the westernmost city in Germany, located near the borders with Belgium and the Netherlands, 61 km west south west of Cologne in a former coal-mining area. One of Germany's leading institutes of higher education in technology, the RWTH Aachen University is located in the city. Its population numbers around 250.000 citizens, 50.000 of them being students! Aachen's industries include science, engineering and information technology. In 2009, Aachen was ranked eighth among cities in Germany for innovation. It unites tradition with progress. The great Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne, has left his mark throughout the city. The cathedral - the first monument in Germany to be included in the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list - and the gothic City Hall in which 32 German kings celebrated their coronations still form the heart of Aachen’s old city centre.

About the University and Faculty:

RWTH Aachen University or Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen is a research university located close to the centre of Aachen. With more than 44,000 students enrolled in 144 study programs, it is the largest technical university in Germany. More than 7,000 international students are currently enrolled within the undergraduate, graduate or PhD programme. Compared to other German universities the portion of international students at the RWTH Aachen is higher-than-average.

National rankings regularly identify RWTH Aachen as the best university in Germany in the fields of engineering, especially mechanical engineering, in which field it is considered to be the best in Germany. Internationally, in the 2018 QS Faculty Rankings RWTH Aachen is placed 23 for Mechanical Engineering.

Chair for Aerospace Engineering is established by none other than Theodore von Kármán, a pioneer of modern Aerodynamics, who accepted a position as director of the Aeronautical Institute in 1912.
