Research in the Faculty of Engineering

With its closely networked four departments, the engineering sciences at the University Duisburg-Essen offer a unique range of research with four faculty research profiles. Research is closely linked to teaching at the highest level, which is oriented towards the faculty's main research profiles. With its 73 departments, the faculty is one of the largest engineering faculties in Germany.

Supported by five affiliated institutes and other cooperating institutes, the faculty efficiently and quickly applies its research results, achieved in cooperation with partners from other national and international research institutions as well as business and industry, into application-ready practical projects. This is not the only reason why the engineering sciences at the University of Duisburg-Essen are internationally highly regarded and networked in many areas: In nanotechnology, for example, they occupy a leading position as well as in research into combustion processes. International visibility and reputation are also high in the fields of automotive engineering, energy, environmental technology and semiconductor research. The same applies to the optimization of communication, radio and radar systems, energy networks, optoelectronics and interactive media systems.
