"Experimental particle physics and also medical physics characterize the research work of the Albrecht group. In the field of particle physics, we are conducting research with the LHCb experiment, which is one of the four large experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider and addresses fundamental questions about the understanding of our universe. In particular, we are interested in the mystery of why there is hardly any antimatter in our universe, even though matter and antimatter were created in equal parts in the Big Bang. Huge amounts of data and extremely rare processes pose challenges in data analysis, which are tackled using state-of-the-art methods such as machine learning. There here in the field of artificial intelligence and data processing also a natural connection to computer science. In addition to data analysis, we also research and then build novel particle detectors. The experience we have gained in the fields of data analysis and detector physics also forms the basis of our work in the field of medical physics. Here we are dealing with questions of dosimetry, brachytherapy and teletherapy, diagnostic techniques and image processing."

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.

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".
