Heating oil store becomes laboratory
RWU's former heating oil storage facility has been converted into a laboratory. Where there used to be space for 80,000 liters of oil, RWU's Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is now working on additive manufacturing.
Engineers of the future honored
The champagne glasses clinked again last Friday: RWU's Faculty of Mechanical Engineering celebrated its graduates.
Career Days 2023
Making contacts at RWU
The Career Days took place at RWU from November 13 to 15. Once again this year, the three days were a platform for relaxed networking between students and companies from the region.
Fake news and conspiracy theories - Who can I still believe?
In the Early Night Social Talk event series at RWU, Professor Dr Anja Klimsa will talk about fake news and conspiracy theories.
RWU Campus Tour
During your studies, the campus becomes a piece of home. This is where friends meet, where people celebrate, learn and experiment. Ammar and Katherine will take you on a tour: labs, cafeteria and coffee bar, student initiatives and the International Office - then you'll know your way around.
KONZEPTE - the magazine of the RWU!
The new university magazine is now free and available everywhere on campus and online.
what makes us special? This is the question people ask themselves in view of the incomprehensible superiority of neural networks. It's the question companies are asking themselves in the face of global competition. And it's the question we ask ourselves as a university of applied sciences.
After reading this magazine, apart from the quantitative facts - study programs, teaching, laboratories, practice, employability - a qualitative factor is part of my answer to the initial question:
A student collects voices about the war in the Ukraine with her media technology know-how. A professor digs deeper into a previously unexplained physical phenomenon until he can comprehend it mathematically. A staff member reports about her joy in supporting students on their way at the RWU. A mayor advocates mutual understanding in times of heated online debates. A student keeps a team together with her presence and many conversations in Corona times. A staff member invents a scholarship format that enables children and young people to take instrumental lessons.
Just a few examples. And it may sound like circular reasoning: What is special about the RWU is the RWU. Nevertheless, I am convinced that it is above all the people who make us special. It's searching and having ideas, questioning, speaking one's mind and listening, it's dialogue at eye level, respect and tolerance. That makes us special."

New field of study in mechanical engineering: Engineering Design
Those who are enthusiastic about new technologies and want to design innovative products can now develop their skills to design the products of tomorrow in the new "Engineering Design" degree programme in mechanical engineering.
Already at the beginning of the degree programme, design basics are taught in addition to the technical and scientific fundamentals. In the main course, these skills are deepened, which are necessary for development in creative and multidisciplinary teams.
