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.

In this degree program, the basics of computer science, mathematics and knowledge from main and application subjects are imparted. Through basic and method-oriented training and the teaching of scientific working techniques, the graduates are enabled to adapt to future technologies in the long term and to carry out successful activities throughout their professional lives. Therefore, students will not only be taught contemporary and current applications, but also theoretically underpinned concepts and methods that will stand the test of time.
In addition to a broad basic knowledge, students acquire formal, algorithmic and mathematical skills, learn methods for analysis, design and implementation of (software) projects and acquire basic technological knowledge. They learn techniques for knowledge acquisition and project management and acquire interdisciplinary and social skills.
Starting from general compulsory courses on the basics of computer science and on the basics of mathematics, the students choose a focus (engineering or media informatics) and application subjects that are closely interlinked in their studies. Students are enabled to perform transfer tasks and to apply the knowledge they have acquired in core informatics to the respective field of specialisation.
