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.
