International Career Fair

Information for Students and Graduates

The 10th International Career Fair takes place on Thursday, 28 October 2021.

Are you about to complete your studies or maybe already writing your thesis? Have you come to study at TU Dort­mund University from abroad? Are you interested in the professional opportunities which companies from Dort­mund and the region can offer you?

Take your chance and make direct contact with company representatives!

At the career fair you will have the opportunity to get to know a large number of companies from Dort­mund and the region in personal conversations. This is of particular interest to students pursuing degree programs in the natural sciences and technical subjects, as a visit to the trade fair can open up interesting career opportunities for you.

Talking Situation during the Career Fair 2019

Which program has been planned?

This career fair aims to bring you as a foreign student or graduate together with internationally active company representatives. To make this possible, the day of the event consists of two sections:

09:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.


09:15 a.m. -  1:00 a.m.             

In the morning you will have the opportunity to talk to company representatives at pre-arranged meetings. When you register, you can narrow down which companies are of interest to you and which qualifications you can offer. This should allow a quite precise allocation of you to potentially suitable companies. Each meeting lasts 20 minutes, so a maximum number of 11 meetings are possible in the end. 

1:00 a.m. - 1:30 a.m.   

Lunch Break

1:30 a.m.- 3:00 a.m.

Continuation of the career fair: In the afternoon, even spontaneous visitors or those who could not get appointments in advance have the opportunity to inform themselves at the stands of the companies.

Which companies take part in the fair?

An overview of the participating companies can be found here from April 2021.

Who organizes this event? 

The fair is organized by the International Office of TU Dort­mund University and the Dort­mund Chamber of Industry and Commerce.

Do you need to register?

A prior registration is required indeed, but only for the morning appointments. The registration period opens August 2021.

In the afternoon between 1:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., the exhibition format is open and you can drop by spontaneously and make contacts.

Where does the career fair take place?

The fair takes place in the International Meeting Centre (IBZ), Emil-Figge-Str. 59, on the North Campus of TU Dort­mund University. Sufficient parking spaces are available in the immediate vicinity of the IBZ. The International Meeting Center offers an excellent venue for networking between the university and the regional economy. The construction of the International Meeting Center (IBZ) has already shown that science and business in Dort­mund are moving closer together: the building was financed mainly by donations from companies in Dort­mund and the region. The students of TU Dort­mund University have also made a major contribution to the center with their tuition fees.

What do the companies expect from you?

When you register, you submit your qualifications and what you are interested in; e.g. internships or a job to start with. The more concrete your details are, the better we can match you with the companies. To do this, you must agree that we may pass on your data and your CV to the companies for the event.

For all this, you must agree that we may share your data and your CV with the companies for the event.

What does the participation in the event cost?

Participation in the career fair is free both for companies and students.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.


TU Dort­mund University has its own train station ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station ("Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop "Dort­mund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dort­mund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S".


The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.


The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.


The facilities of TU Dort­mund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
