What is the Center for Doctoral Studies?

The Center for Doctoral Studies, CDS for short, is the center for providing continuing education and transferable skills training opportunities for doctoral candidates. The focus is on skills which are important for your doctoral studies and further career.

One of RWTH Aachen's goals is for its young researchers not only to possess excellent subject oriented skills but also a broad range of skills outside of their discipline. The CDS supports doctoral candidates with their career development.

Another objective of the integrated Human Resources Development Concept is to promote the professional development and career of its doctoral candidates. For this reason, RWTH Aachen offers more than 200 training courses within CDS that are aligned with the identified fields of action for human resources development.

The acquisition of key skills can be recorded in the RWTH Aachen Doctorate Supplement.

The CDS falls under the responsibility of the Vice-Rector for Human Resources Management and Development and is advised and supported by a scientific advisory council.

Within JARA, the Jülich-Aachen Research Alliance, RWTH and Forschungszentrum Jülich have developed guidelines (de) for the further development of doctoral education concepts.

  • All doctoral candidates in Faculties 1 through 8
