Great honor for Professor Gabriele Sadowski from the Faculty of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering at TU Dortmund University: She is the first woman to receive the “Distinguished Lecture Award in Thermodynamics and Transport Properties” from the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE)
In doing so, the EFCE Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties has acknowledged Professor Sadowski’s internationally recognized achievements in the areas of modeling and experimental analysis of substance properties. The award jury explained: “She is an internationally leading personality in the field of thermodynamics. She also performs important work for our community and is a great teacher and mentor for the next generation of scientists.”
Gabriele Sadowski has been full professor for thermodynamics at TU Dortmund University since 2001. She is a member of the RESOLV cluster of excellence, the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts as well as of acatech, the National Academy of Science and Engineering. In 2016 she was additionally appointed as TU Dortmund University’s Prorector Research.
Over 230 articles published in scientific journals
Her research work focuses on the modeling and analysis of the properties of complex substances and their composition, above all those with polymers, pharmaceutical substances as well as chemical and biological reactions.
Professor Sadowski has published over 230 articles in renowned international journals, which to date have been cited more than 8,000 times. She has already received several awards for her research, including the Arnold Eucken Prize of the VDI – The Association of German Engineers (1999).

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 Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dortmund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). 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 Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord 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 20 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".
Dortmund Airport offers flights to several destinations in Central Europe. There are regular connections to Katowice, Kraków, London and Munich. For the approximately 20km-trip from Dortmund Airport to TU Dortmund University, you can use a shuttle bus to the railway Station "Bahnhof Holzwickede", from which trains depart to Dortmund main station (please visit Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr for more information). Normally, the fastest way is to catch a taxi at Dortmund Airport.
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. 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 Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.
