The Academy’s responsibility enfolds organizational, administrative and economic aspects, whereupon the scientific leadership lies with RWTH Aachen University, which awards the academic degree "Master of Science".


Accreditation by ASIIN e. V.

The partner of RWTH Aachen University and RWTH International Academy for certification of quality management systems in systems accreditation is 'ASIIN e.V.' This accreditation agency for degree programmes sets standards for programmes in engineering, computer science, natural sciences, mathematics, and a teaching qualification. All master programmes offered in cooperation with the faculty of mechanical engineering of RWTH Aachen University and RWTH International Academy have been accreditated by ASIIN. The accreditation needs to be updated in regularly timeframes to ensure a continuous level of quality assurance and improvement.


Advantages as RWTH Aachen University Student

Students who take part in a Master’s programme at the RWTH International Academy receive an official Master’s Degree from RWTH Aachen University.
