Developing potential is the motto of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB). Here, researchers and learners look beyond the boundaries of their own subject. State-of-the-art laboratories and the short distances of a campus university enable interdisciplinary cooperation, the success of which is reflected in clearly defined research foci and a comprehensive range of courses.

The faculty offers modern study programs in the staged, European Bachelor's/Master's system, which in this form and orientation are available nationwide only in Bochum.

Our professors conduct research together with their teams and cover a wide range of topics in addition to the main areas of plasma technology, sensor technology and IT security. Interdisciplinary top-level international research is conducted with industrial partners as well as in cross-faculty and cross-university clusters of excellence, collaborative research centers and research departments.
