In December 2006, the RWTH of Aachen and the Sultanate of Oman signed an agreement for the creation of a private German technical university in Muscat. The Aachen professors contributed to the development of the programs for the five current programs and the scientific staff took over some of the first programs.  They will be enrolled for the duration of two years at TU Delft and a partner university of their career, according to the rules of that university. The fee is paid to Delft for the duration of the program. For the year 2020-2021, the result is that dual degrees and student mobility are promoted by the TIME network (Top Industrial Managers for Europe) with other technological universities. In addition, RWTH is a member of the IDEA League, a strategic partnership between four of Europe`s leading research universities, including TU Delft, Chalmers University of Technology and ETH Zurich, and was the first German university to launch a research programme in 2008. The RWTH in Aachen provides selected UAlberta students with scholarships of 1,850 euros to cover the cost of living during your stay. On January 25, 1858, Prince Frederick Wilhelm of Prussia (later German Emperor) received a donation of 5,000 talents from the fire insurance company of Aachen and Munich, the forerunner of the insurance of Aachen, to charity. In March, the sovereign decided to create by donation the first Prussian institute of technology somewhere in the Rhine province. The headquarters of the institution remained undecided for years; While the cities of Aachen, Bonn, Cologne and Dusseldorf were also the main competitors, with Aasum and Cologne initially preferring Coblence. Aachen finally won thanks to a financing concept supported by the insurance company and local banks.  The first pick for the new Polytechnique took place on 15 May 1865 and classes began on 10 October 1870, during the Franco-German War, with 223 pupils and 32 teachers.
The main objective of the new institution was to train engineers, particularly for the mining industry in the Ruhr region; there were schools of chemistry, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering, as well as a general initiation school that taught mathematics, science and certain social sciences. The International Office grants the Erasmus scholarship. Students receive a scholarship contract each year in July, when their Erasmus stay begins during the winter semester of the academic year. For students who start their Erasmus stay during the summer semester, the Erasmus scholarship is awarded annually in November. The Institute of Aachen for Advanced Engineering (AICES) is a postgraduate school founded in 2006 as part of the German University Excellence Initiative at the RWTH in Aachen. Research at AICES is extensive in the field of computational engineering, solving reverse problems that find applications in mathematics, computer science and engineering, mechanical engineering and science. AICES is a collaboration of 47 principal investigators from 8 scientific departments of the RWTH in Aachen as well as the Max Planck Institute for Iron Research and the Research Centre in J-lich. Internationally, the 2016 RWTH Aachen ranked QS Faculty 20 (mechanical engineering), 51-100 (electrotechnical), 40 (physics – astronomy), 36 (Chemical Engineering), 21 (material) Science), `42 (chemistry), `26 (mineral and mining technologies.[ 35] The Times Higher Education Subject 2019 rankings ranked the RWTH in 27th place in engineering and technology, 72nd place in the physical sciences, 47th place in computer science.
