In addition to providing central information technology services the IT Center is involved in basic research and, particularly, in application-oriented research projects in Computational Science & Engineering.
The IT Center actively supports the design of the digitization processes at RWTH Aachen University. Against this background, the IT Center has been dealing with the topic of "Cloud" in the university environment at the RWTH for some time now.
Students can find out at a glance about upcoming dates and current news from the central systems and facilities of RWTH Aachen University, such as the teaching and learning portal L²P. Of course, the RWTHApp also allows the download and thus the mobile work with the provided learning contents from L²P.
The Virtual Reality Group, VRG for short, conducts virtual reality and immersive visualization research projects. Furthermore, it makes available VR technologies for RWTH Aachen institutes and departments.
