TU Dortmund University has been researching and teaching at the global intersection between man, nature and technology since its establishment in 1968. It has developed a unique profile with a special combination of faculties in the natural sciences and engineering, the social sciences and the humanities. This structure produces new knowledge, methodologies and technical innovations. All this is achieved through a wide spectrum of innovative research and in more than 65 bachelor's and master's programs including a broad-based teacher training curriculum in at least 30 subjects.
At TU Dortmund University there are more than 3300 foreign students from over 100 countries. Here the international character of the university is a huge priority. No matter whether you spend your visit abroad at the TU Dortmund University or whether you want to study some time abroad as a Dortmund student, the International Office is the right contact point.
Above that employees take care of the international students on the Dortmund campus. Special effort is put in the contact with North America: with Con Ruhr the three Ruhr universities have a liaison office in New York since 2004. But the single faculties also have their own partnerships and programs and/or are a member of an international university network.
