Changed Office Hours

Dear students, even in these turbulent times the International Exchange Office of the Faculty of Civil Engineering is still there for you. However, we would like to make a contribution to the interruption of the coronavirus infection pathways and, if possible, limit the consultation on site. From now on and until further notice we will remain available via e-mail at and during the usual office hours (Mi- Do 10:00 to 12:00) by telephone: 0049 241 80 27787.


Document Submission

On request, we will send you scans of all documents you need for your semester abroad, recognition as well as other purposes via e-mail.

Temporarily, the control sheets for course recognition are accepted as a scan by the Examination Board so that you do not have to pick up the original document at the International Exchange Office. If you need original documents, please send us an e-mail with the postal address to which you would like us to send the documents.

Further information on the current office hours of the faculty's student services please consult the overview of changed office hours due to the coronavirus.


Start of Summer Semester 2020 Courses

Depending on the module, digital courses will start as early as April 6, 2020. Specific information on the courses offered in the summer semester can be found on RWTHOnline or on the homepage of the institutes concerned.

It is the explicit aim of RWTH Aachen University to offer more digital courses in the next weeks until the beginning of the summer semester on April 20, 2020, at the latest.

Especially important for incoming students: If you are abroad due to travel bans, please inform yourself about the general conditions of the exams before registering for a digital course at the respective institutes.
