The joint anniversary exhibition of RWTH and the City of Aachen at Centre Charlemagne will provide fascinating insights into the history and development of the University. It offers visitors the chance to discover different research highlights and the primary focus of all relevant areas from the past 150 years.
Originally planned to run in 2020, the exhibition had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. RWTH and the City of Aachen have now set a new exhibition date: October 30, 2021 to February 13, 2022. The vernissage took place on Friday, October 29, 2021.
In keeping with the anniversary motto of “Lernen. Forschen. Machen.”, the exhibition exemplifies how relevant RWTH has been for the City of Aachen and surrounding areas since it was founded and how the University will continue to be highly significant for the local area in the future. This will be conveyed in a range of different research exhibition items – most of which we now use in our everyday lives, or will use in the future. Together, they show the historical development the University has significantly contributed to.
The Institute for Advanced Mining Technologies (AMT) is involved with two exhibits specially designed for the exhibition. The first of the two exhibits uses 3D printing and video projection to show today's possibilities for mapping underground mines. The second exhibit uses a video to invite visitors on a journey back in time to the historical extraction of hard coal. In contrast to the historical scenes in the video, a model of our intelligent chain link is displayed to demonstrate miniaturization and digitization in the context of today's research approaches.
The AMT will also participate in the anniversary exhibition with a lecture on "Raw materials - indispensable for technology and society" (in cooperation with Professor Abel, IRT). The lecture will use regional examples to illustrate that the history of mankind is inextricably linked to raw materials and their extraction.
