Academic Institutions

In addition to the faculties, there are other academic institutions that assume specific functions.

Academic Institutions

The institutions for the promotion of young researchers – from the university-wide Research School to Graduate Schools and Colleges right up to the various young talent groups – make Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) an internationally prestigious „Talent Incubator“.

Special Centers

ICAMS focuses on the development and application of a new generation of simulation tools for multi-scale materials modeling with the aim of reducing development cost and time for new materials.

In Research Departments, top-level researchers from different faculties unite in a multi-disciplinary environment for a given time. Their main themes reflect the profile areas of RUB.

With its Applied Competence Clusters (ACC), Ruhr University Bochum builds a bridge between research and industrial utilization of the research results.

Central Academic Institutions

In the Central Academic Institutions, researchers probe the depths of precisely defined subject areas without being assigned to a specific faculty. The Cultural Science Institute (KWI) in Essen operates in the tradition of an international Advanced Study Institute. This interdisciplinary Central Academic Facility for Humanities and Cultural Studies is supported by the University Alliance Ruhr.

Academic Institutions of the UA Ruhr:

Institutes associated with RUB

„Institutes associated with RUB“ are scientific institutions legally, organizationally, and economically independent of RUB which have been accredited as working together with RUB. The independence of the institution is not being affected by being associated with the university.
