Master of Education: Engineering (HRSG) and Engineering REHA (HRSG/SP).

The focus of the studies is on linking subject didactic elements with technical practice in the fields of engineering. In the course of study, students work with innovative techniques and modern materials within a professional and scientifically sound framework. The focus is on enabling students to plan lessons and prepare learning environments for varied technology lessons.

The master's degree in technology, which builds on the bachelor's degree, entitles students to enter the preparatory service (Referendariat) as teachers at Hauptschulen, Realschulen, secondary schools and comprehensive schools, depending on the course of study. Teachers of STEM subjects (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology) have good chances of being hired, both now and in the future.


Master of Education: Mechanical Engineering Technology (BK)

The master's program in mechanical engineering technology is designed to enable students to reconstruct and teach concepts, systematics and structures of mechanical engineering technology didactically. The study program is oriented towards the development of basic professional competencies for teaching and training, such as assessment, counseling, diagnostics, evaluation and quality assurance. Within the program, courses are taken in engineering didactics and mechanical engineering.

The qualification obtained through the program enables students to enter a Master of Education program, which qualifies them for the preparatory service (formerly known as "Referendariat") at vocational colleges in the industrial-technical field. Due to the acute shortage of well-trained teachers, there is currently and will continue to be a high demand for teachers in the field of mechanical engineering.


Master of Education: Mechanical Engineering Technology (Vocational Education) - so-called "Side Entry Master" (BK)

The master's degree program "Vocational Education in Mechanical Engineering Technology" is aimed at prospective students who have already completed a bachelor's degree in engineering and would like to pursue a career as a teacher at a vocational college in North Rhine-Westphalia. The study program is oriented towards the development of basic professional competencies for teaching and training, such as assessment, counseling, diagnostics, evaluation and quality assurance.

Particularly at vocational schools with a commercial-technical orientation, there is a serious lack of a sustainable supply of well-trained teachers today and in the future. This four-semester master's program is designed to bridge the gap between engineering and educational sciences. The completion of the master's program entitles the student to enter the preparatory service (Referendariat) for the teaching profession at vocational colleges in the industrial-technical fields.

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.
