RWTH’s Key Research Areas

Interdisciplinary research at RWTH focuses on issues arising from global challenges, i.e. the major social challenges of our time.

This interdisciplinary research is thematically grouped in eight profile areas:
MSE Molecular Science & Engineering
MSS Modeling & Simulation Sciences
MatSE Materials Science & Engineering
ICT Information & Communication Technology
MTE Mobility & Transport Engineering
ECPE Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering
ProdE Production Engineering
MedST Medical Science & Technology
BLE Built & Lived Environement

The core of the Excellence Strategy and thus RWTH’s future orientation is the convergence of knowledge, methods, and insights. In this way, the Integrated Interdisciplinary University of Science and Technology succeeds in penetrating and further developing complex systems. And this is how RWTH can successfully meet the global challenges of our time.
