Former students and graduates can regularly take part in events at TU Dortmund, no matter whether they are organized by Alumni International, the umbrella network or the clubs and associations of the faculties. As soon as you are registered in the network, you will receive all current information and updates!

A special highlight was the "Alumni Reunion" in autumn 2016: A total of 17 alumni from Turkey, India, Iran and China participated in the alumni meeting of the English-taught degree programs "Process Systems Engineering" and "Automation and Robotics". For four days they took part in a varied program, which - as well as the travel and accommodation costs of the participants - was financed by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with the kind support of the Association of Friends of TU Dortmund University.

After your graduation you can choose between different career paths – taking up employment in a company, starting a scientific career, founding your own company or even further education for additional qualifications - on our career pages you will find an overview of the different possibilities and the offers at TU Dortmund.


Our network currently includes former students and graduates from over 60 countries. You can find impressions of their very personal experience during the studies at TU Dortmund, but also advice and tips for future students in these reports:

Have you also studied at TU Dortmund for some time and would like to share your experience with us and others to let them take part? We look forward to receiving your personal report! You will find all contact details at the bottom of this page.

Registration is done via the TU Dortmund Alumni Network. This network is the central contact and information network for alumni of all faculties at TU Dortmund. The membership is free of charge and as members of the central alumni network, alumni benefit from a wide range of offers. For example, you can order a subscription to the newsletter and many other print media and thus receive up-to-date, cross-faculty information from research, teaching and university life.

When registering, you can state that you have been an international student at TU Dortmund University and thus receive information and offers tailored to your needs.


We are currently looking for international alumni who have started their careers in Germany after graduating from TU Dortmund University.

For our new mentoring program Tandem2Job, we are looking for international alumni of TU Dortmund University who, after their own successful entry into the German job market, would now like to pass on their experience to international students as mentors. Perhaps you also had someone to give advice during the phase between graduation and starting your career, and now you would like to give something back?

In the Tandem2Job mentoring program, experienced professionals act as mentors to give international students an insight into the German job market and reflect on the mentees' career aspirations in one-to-one conversations.

You can find all information about the program on our project website "Tandem2Job".
We are looking forward to your registration!

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".
