University of Duisburg-Essen
Creative inspiration between Rhine and Ruhr: the densest European University landscape surrounds the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE).
Founded in 2003 through the merger of the two universities Duisburg and Essen, the University Duisburg-Essen is the youngest University of North Rhihe-Westphalia and is among the ten largest in Germany.
Both campi are easily accesible and offer a wide range of international subjects from the humanities and social sciences of economics to the engineering and natural sciences and medicine for about 40.000 students.
Students from 130 nations are studying at the University Duisburg-Essen.
The UDE is among the top ten of the strongest research oriented universities of Germany in many disciplines.
The five priority research areas, nano-science, biomedical sciences, urban systems, empirial educational research and transformation of contemporary societies, ensure that the research revenues increased about 150 percent in the past three years.
