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 content of this course is divided into three areas: System Cell, System Organism and Ecosystem
The four-semester study period is divided into a theoretical and a practical phase. After a short orientation in the first semester, an individual specialization takes place in the second semester, which is concluded by a long practical phase. It is completely up to the students in which or how many of the above-mentioned areas they specialize. The practical phase is intended to ensure that the students gain a good insight into the professional world on the one hand and get to know project-oriented work on the other.
Students can choose from a variety of newly designed courses and complete their internships in modern, newly equipped internship and research laboratories.
The aim of the training is to qualify students to plan and carry out experiments independently, to assess the significance of different methods for their own questions, to familiarize themselves with new methods and subject areas independently, to apply and transfer existing knowledge and to formulate project goals independently. Graduates are thus just as well prepared for a possible entry into a doctorate as they are for professional life.
