We are one of the youngest faculties with a structure that is unique in Germany. From electrical engineering and information technology to mechanical engineering and materials technology to construction sciences, everything that belongs to the field of engineering is under one roof. The fact that there is also room for the fields of medical engineering, business administration and logistics not only ensures further multi-perspective study courses and research approaches, but also takes account of the rapid development towards multidisciplinarity. With more than 50 institutes and over 7,500 students, we are one of the largest faculties in Germany.
Organization of the faculty
Structure of the faculty
The faculty is organizationally divided into seven teaching units, which are closely networked with each other through joint degree programs and research programs. Four departments have been formed from the teaching units in accordance with the university's organizational structure. In addition, there is an inter-departmental institute within the faculty.
Immediately after the founding of the University of Duisburg-Essen, the jointly defined goal of the faculty was to bring together all engineering disciplines under one roof. In doing so, it anticipated a development that is today shaping the world, especially for technologically leading and research-strong companies and institutions.
The faculty was created in its current structure in 2001, when the departments of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Materials Engineering were merged. Strategic expansions and the integration of the departments of Civil Engineering, Cognitive Science as well as parts of the Business Administration Department followed in the years 2006 to 2008.
