The Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a variety of international research cooperation with partner universities.
In the winter semester of 2009 the Master’s programme Computational Engineering was established at the Vietnamese-German University (VGU) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Since 2010, VGU-students are travelling regularly to Germany for research stays at Ruhr University Bochum. RUB students are welcome to travel to VGU to get an impression of what it’s like to study at a newly established university in an emerging Asian metropolis. For further information please contact the CompEng coordinator (Jörg Sahlmen).
For doctoral candidates
A cooperation agreement between the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Ruhr University Bochum and the College of Civil Engineering of Tongji University in Shanghai has been signed in 2012. The agreement includes PhD student exchange and joint workshops. Since 2012, two workshops have been organized within the Collaborative Research Center 837 “Interaction Modeling in Mechanized Tunneling”. For further information please contact the SFB 837 assistant coordinator (Jörg Sahlmen).
For doctoral candidates of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Ruhr University Bochum, it is possible to cooperate with the Innovation and Knowlege Centre of the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, UK.
