"RWTH's community brings people together" in the land of endless possibilities
North America has attracted many RWTH alumni. They live spread out across the continent in the USA and Canada. It is increasingly possible to find RWTH alumni in the metropolitan areas of New York, Michigan, and California. A local association was formed in 2006 with about 150 members for alumni there .
The RWTH Alumni America can look back on a very ambitious program since its foundation. Its goal is competent and casual networking while experiencing something together. Get togethers will also take place in the future, where all RWTH alumni – including nonmembers – are invited to attend. The latest alumni get together just took place in Chicago.
Next Alumni Get Together
Details to the next annual RWTH alumni get together in North America will be puplished here in 2018.
