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 seven modern study programs in the staged, European Bachelor's/Master's system, which in this form and orientation are available nationwide only in Bochum. This also includes the part-time continuing education course "Applied IT Security", which the faculty runs together with isits AG (isits International School of IT Security).
More than 20 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, research departments such as the Horst Görtz Institute for IT Security (HGI), the Max Planck Institute for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection (MPI), and the Center of Computer Science.
Their tasks are clearly defined: The members of the faculty council, in the doctoral committee and examination board decide, inform and advise.
