Research needs reliable partners. In addition to numerous, often long-standing partnerships with key players in the energy industry, the close ties with former members of the IFHT opens up a wide range of opportunities for our students and for joint research projects.
In order to put the cooperation with the institute on a more professional footing, the "Hochspannungstechnische Gesellschaft an der RWTH Aachen e.V (HTG)" was founded on the initiative of the alumni in 2008. The association has set itself the goal of promoting young scientists, research and scientific exchange.
This is accomplished in many ways, e.g. by awarding prizes for outstanding bachelor and master theses, supporting excursions and sporting events, working in teaching, etc..
