Student Assistants

  Students at the library © RWTH/Martin Braun

Become a student assistant at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University and support us in our diverse research and industrial projects. Right from the start, you will be involved in organizational and specialist project management activities.

We welcome you to grasp this opportunity to get insights into different companies and industrial sectors and prepare yourself for entering your professional career. Your activities as a student assistant optimally prepare you for becoming a research assistant at our department after graduation.


Development opportunities

We are pleased that many of our student assistants opt to plan their future career together with us. They become postgraduate research assistants, assume complete responsibility for exciting projects and gain a PhD at our institutes. Even those who opt to follow a different path following graduation will profit in the long-term and in a sustained way from the time spent at our institutes. We hear this again and again from our former student assistants - even many years later. This makes us very proud.

We even support our student assistants in planning their studies and use our global network of industrial and research contacts to find work experience placements nationally or internationally. We can also assist in finding student stays at universities abroad.
