Curriculum Description

Your Curriculum Structure

The certificate program RWTH Research Manager has been designed to be modular. It includes three compulsory and three elective modules as well as an accompanying transfer project, which allows you to directly apply what you have learned. You will then receive an expert certificate from RWTH Aachen University with a range of 25 ECTS credits, which identifies the quality level and the learning objectives you have achieved. In addition to the three compulsory modules, you have a choice of five elective modules. On two days you will receive personal coaching, either in a group workshop or on a one-to-one basis.

Accompanying the certificate program, a transfer project will be developed in small groups and supervised by a lecturer.
