Teaching of the Chair of Technology and Organization


Our goals as teachers

  1. Excellent and attractive instruction for motivated students
  2. High practical orientation due to excursions and work shadowing at our practice partners, among other things
  3. Insights into current research (the subject matter of our research projects is also used for our practical seminars)
  4. A good mix of mandatory curriculum and individual prioritization/specialization
  5. Guidance regarding career prospects
  6. Final papers with interesting topics and good support, also in cooperation with companies

The study program includes a wide range of academic courses in the technology-related focal points of sociological research at RWTH Aachen University, such as

  • Sociology of Technology
  • Futures Studies and Innovation Research
  • Gender and Technology Studies
  • Sociology of Organization

In addition, you will be taught in the two fundamental competence areas of “Sociological Theory Development” and “Methods of Empirical Social Sciences”. On this foundation, you will learn how to measure, in a methodically controlled way, the dynamic interrelation between technology and society and how to theoretically reflect on your findings.
