The Region Internship


Since its founding 50 years ago, Technische Universität Dortmund (TU Dortmund University) has developed a special profile, encompassing 16 faculties ranging from science and engineering to social sciences and cultural studies. The university has more than 34,000 students and 2,300 academic staff, including 300 professors. The various scientific disciplines share a common university spirit in which interdisciplinarity, communication and cooperation are not only taught, but lived and experienced.

A large and diverse city in the Ruhr valley, Dortmund offers all the advantages of urban life in a metropolitan area of some 5 million people. At the same time, half of the city’s spaces are green. Whereas the traditional coal and steel mills have been transformed into creative spaces and cultural hotspots, Dortmund has retained its soccer culture with some of Germany’s most fun and enthusiastic soccer fans celebrating their team in Borussia Dortmund’s 80,000 seat stadium. When you come to Dortmund, you will recognize immediately that you are not in a typical study abroad location. It is a territory you can discover for yourself, making new friends in a remarkably welcoming environment.
