The program has a standard period of four semesters and can be started in any semester. A total of 120 credit points according to ECTS must be successfully completed. The first year of study serves to deepen the student's knowledge of the subject, while the second year is a research phase that is completed with the writing of a Master's thesis. The study program is divided into modules, which comprise one or more courses. The grades of the module examinations are included in the final grade (weighted according to the scope of the module). There is no final examination for the entire degree programme. The type of examination (oral, written) is specified in the module descriptions or announced at the beginning of the module. The module descriptions are accessible via the module handbook. A special feature of the degree program are the two "specialisation areas" to be chosen from five subjects. In each specialisation area, modules with a minimum of 15 CP and a maximum of 25CP must be taken. A total of at least 40 CP must be taken in the specialisation areas.

A number of different courses are available for selection in each of the specialisation areas. This selection must be made in prior consultation with one of the the specialisation coordinators. These are

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.
