Information and Communication technologies are an integral part of everyday life. As a key technology of the 21st century they occur in almost all research fields. Thus the profile area ICT represents competences from nearly all faculties, especially computer science, electrical engineering, natural sciences, mechanical engineering, humanities and economics.
The Profile Area ICT is led by a steering committee, consisting of eight selected professors of the RWTH Aachen. The members are appointed by the Rectorate at the suggestion of the faculties in agreement with the Strategy Board and they elect a speaker.
The Steering Committee, with its members, covers competencies of five faculties of RWTH Aachen University. They are committed to identify and provide targeted support for innovative, cross-faculty and promising research topics within the university.
