Advance in your career
The university is founded in 2003 through the merger of two universities and is the youngest university in Germany. It is ranked 190 in 2019’s Times Higher Education ranking. There are 11 departments with programs ranging from the humanities and social sciences over economics and business studies all the way to the engineering sciences and natural sciences. By far, most students are enrolled in engineering programs. The university’s motto is “Open-Minded” which refers both to the diversity and research made at the university. The yearly budget covers 483 million EUR and it is also well-known in the international scientific community. Almost 20% of the enrolled students are international students from 130 different countries.
The university has campuses in two cities in North Rhine Westphalia. Which has around 550.000 habitants. One of them has the most important steel production site in Europe and functions as a logistical center of Germany. It’s known for its large harbor on the Rhine river. The site of an old ironworks is now a park with trails and a ropes course.
The other city is known as “the shopping city” and was awarded the European Green Capital in 2017. The Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex has been transformed to house several museums. A heritage trail through the former colliery chronicles the city’s history of coal mining and steel production.

The bachelor’s programme in mechanical engineering is broadly based. In the first semesters, students are predominantly taught the basics of mathematics, mechanics, natural sciences and technical presentation; in addition there are lectures in computer science, electrical engineering, materials technology and machine elements.
From the fourth semester onwards, students have the opportunity to choose between the various specialisations. Depending on the choice of course of study, the corresponding courses are obligatory.
The following specialisations are planned for the Bachelor’s programme:
VT 1: General mechanical engineering
VT 2: Energy and process engineering
VT 3: Mechatronics
VT 4: Product Engineering
VT 5: Shipbuilding and marine technology
VT 6: Foundry technology
VT 7: metal processing and application.
By choosing a specialisation, students have the opportunity, in addition to building up broad-based knowledge and specialist skills, to prepare themselves for the desired career goal or for a special field with a view to further qualification in the Master’s programme.
In each of these areas of specialisation, the courses to be attended are defined, so that a combination that makes sense in terms of content is achieved. Students have the option of individually designing and supplementing the content in the supplementary area and the Soft Skills; area, where they can choose from the university’s catalogued offerings.
