Faculty of Engineering

We are one of the youngest faculties at one of the oldest university campuses in the country. Already in 1655 a university was founded in Duisburg. This university existed until 1818. In 1972 the new University of Duisburg was founded. In 2003 the University of Duisburg merged with the neighboring University of Essen to the new University of Duisburg-Essen. As part of this merger the current shape of our faculty has been created; it is unique in Germany. Our four departments pursue research on a high, internationally recognized level. With about 80 professorships and more than 10,000 students our faculty belongs to the largest in Germany. We invite you to become acquainted with our faculty.
