Since its founding 48 years ago, TU Dortmund University has developed a profile of its very own. With 16 faculties ranging from science and engineering to social sciences and cultural studies, the university currently has near to 34,200 students and 6,200 members of staff, including 300 professors. There are about 80 degree programs to choose from, some classic, some innovative, and some even unique to this university. We also offer a comprehensive program of teacher training for all types of school. All our scientific disciplines share a common university spirit in which interdisciplinarity, communication and cooperation are not only taught, but are actively lived by. This interactive culture creates a supportive environment that sparks technological innovation and drives advances in methods and knowledge.
