Studying with disability or chronic illness


We, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of the RWTH, expressly encourage all students with disabilities or chronic illness to study at our faculty. We are convinced that there are no insurmountable "external" hindrances, at least we are striving on our part to reduce them as far as possible.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us:

More information about studying with disability or chronic illness

In 2004 the RWTH Aachen University received the "predicate disability-friendly" from the Rhineland Regional Association for the exemplary employment of disabled people.

At the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Martina Dahm represents the interests of students in the fields of electrical engineering. You can discuss very specific questions with her and we will try to find individual ways to compensate for the disadvantages of studying due to disabilities or chronic illnesses.
