Ruhr Universität Bochum


It is a child of its age and the Ruhr region and its effect radiates far beyond its locality. Since its founding in the early 1960s, the Ruhr-Universität-Bochum (RUB) has grown quickly and has met all the expectations put into it in an exemplary manner.

With excellence in research and teaching, the RUB has been primarily responsible for changing the character of this once heavy industrial region. Have a look and see for yourself!

  • The first university to be founded in post-war Federal Republic of Germany (founded: 1962; opened: 1965).
  • Over 35,000 students, 368 professors, and 6,249 staff.
  • Future oriented, e.g. to the neurosciences, medical technology, and IT security.
