Laboratory Work

The laboratory works offer the opportunity to gain practical experience in a university environment. For this purpose, students work in small groups on practical tasks with a research context. Often case studies are worked on or experiments are carried out in the laboratories of the chairs. In the Bachelor's program, the laboratory works consist of a module with 5 LP. In the Master's program, students can complete the module either by attending two labs with 3 LP each or by attending one lab with 6 LP.

With the overview of currently offered laboratory works and logistic projects of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering you can get an overview and at the same time find information on how to register. With the overview in Excel format, you can use the filter function to reduce the overview to labs for your degree program and the desired semester. Detailed descriptions of the contents can usually be found on the websites of the offering chairs.

Registration is usually done via the chair or a Moodle course. Please note the registration deadlines. Participation in laboratories of the Master's program is only possible if you are enrolled in the Master's program at the time of registration. For questions regarding the labs please contact the chairs, for questions regarding the central Moodle courses for registration in the study programs Logistics and Industrial Engineering and Management please contact the respective student advisor.

Bachelor

The bachelor's degree program in mechanical engineering does not include a laboratory work.

In the Bachelor's degree program in Logistics, the subject laboratory is called "Logistics Project". It comprises the processing of a logistical problem on the basis of a practical case study. The logistics project is supervised by the various chairs that offer logistical questions for processing, see overview.

Registration is done via the Moodle-Kurs Logistikprojekt WS 2022/2023.

This laboratory is offered by the IUL and ISF and deals with topics related to the processing of materials. Further information can be found in the overview.

Here, either the laboratories of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (see profile Production Management), the laboratories of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (see profile Management of Electrical Systems) or the seminars of the Faculty of Economics can be taken. 

The laboratories of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology can be taken here. Detailed descriptions and information about the labs can be found on the homepage of the Faculty ETIT

Master

Within the scope of the laboratory, selected complex contents from mechanical engineering are deepened by means of practical investigations in which the students independently solve engineering problems. The topics and types of experiments are offered by the chairs of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, see overview.

The Logistics Lab is divided into Logistics Lab I and Logistics Lab II. Within the framework of the laboratories, selected logistics contents are deepened by means of practical investigations in which the students solve problems independently. The topics and types of experiments are offered by the chairs of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering that research and teach in the field of logistics, see overview.

Registration takes place via the Moodle-Kurs Logistiklabor WS 2022/2023.

Within the scope of the laboratory, questions from the fields of mechanical engineering and industrial engineering are dealt with. The topics and types of experiments are offered by the chairs of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, see overview.

Registration takes place in the summer semester via the Moodle-Kurs Fachlabor - M.Sc. Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen SS, in the winter semester via the Moodle-Kurs Fachlabor - M.Sc. Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen WS.

Here, either the laboratories of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (see profile Production Management) or the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (see profile Management of Electrical Systems) can be visited.

The laboratories of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology can be taken here. Detailed descriptions and information about the labs can be found on the homepage of the Faculty ETIT

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.
