The exchange program ERASMUS+ of the European Union enables the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering to send students to universities in other European countries every year.
During the stay, students can either attend lectures, which are chosen by themselves, or work on projects, which are comparable to the final or project work done here.
If necessary, these projects can also be done in English, so that the student does not have to have a perfect command of the respective national language.
The work done abroad can be recognized at the TU Dortmund University after consultation and approval of the respective professors.

The cooperation of TU Dortmund University with universities in Europe can be found here.

In general, the International Office (RI) within the TU Dortmund University is responsible for the study of German students abroad as well as for international university partnerships and cooperations. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is happy to support you in your desire to study abroad.


The RI is the main contact for exchanges to non-European countries. The TU Dortmund University maintains numerous partnerships worldwide within the framework of ISEP (International Student Exchange Program) and other cooperation agreements. In addition to a strong focus on North America, the university offers exchange opportunities to Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The DAAD offers country-specific information on scholarship programs for study, teaching and research stays, university projects and scientific cooperation. It also provides background information on the country, higher education and research. The information ranges from types of higher education institutions, study programs and study organization to admission requirements, tuition fees and language skills to visas, housing and living costs. In addition, the service area contains numerous field reports, addresses of important organizations and link tips.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund University has its own train station ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station ("Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop "Dort­mund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dort­mund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S".

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
