Short profile

Logistics ensures that companies and entire economies can control incoming and outgoing flows of material, in­for­mation, energy, and even people. From procurement to production, distribution, and disposal, it cuts across all functional areas along the supply chain. Next to technology and business management, the most im­por­tant tools are IT systems, teamwork, and lea­der­ship skills.

The Master's program in Logistics at TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is a full-time degree program three semesters long, with the third semester dedicated exclusively to completion of the Master's thesis. The aim of the Master's program is to deepen prior knowledge of logistics and while broadening specialist and methodological ex­per­tise to qualify graduates for careers, mainly in re­search, consulting, and management.

To ensure that students have the greatest possible flexibility in their choice of specialization, the program lets them select modules from the elective catalogues according to their interests.

Knowledge and skills

Prerequisite for enrollment is fundamental knowledge of logistics and engineering acquired within the frame­work of the Bachelor of Science program in Logistics or a comparable course of study. 

The examination board decides on exceptions and on the admission of students with other degrees. Admission can be granted in cases where the examination board accepts a degree deviating from the TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity Bachelor's degree in Logistics with the provision that, prior to enrollment, the applicant can certify specific additional studies or examination results required for successful completion of the Master's program.

Professional fields

The increasing networking of companies, particularly as a result of advancing globalization in production and trade, demands efficient supply chains. The planning and control of these often complex logistical activities requires academically trained specialists. Since logistics remains one of the fastest growing industries, the high demand for logistics graduates that exists today will continue in the fu­ture.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Cam­pus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Cam­pus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Cam­pus to South Cam­pus by car, there is the connection via Vo­gel­pothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Cam­pus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duis­burg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Cam­pus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Cam­pus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Cam­pus and offers a direct connection to South Cam­pus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Cam­pus North and the smaller Cam­pus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
