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.

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:

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.
Since July 2021, we have been taking a closer look at our alumni with a new series. In the series "Spotlight: Alumni", we present alumni who are members of our network. On this page, we portray our international alumni - you can also find a complete listing on the page of our TU Dortmund Network.
Enjoy reading the portraits and getting to know our alumni.

TU Dortmund University offers in-service training. Especially for international alumni from the technical field, this is an interesting opportunity for further qualification. For example, registration for the certificate program 'Data Science & Big Data' (start: February 2023) is now possible.
The part-time certificate course 'Data Science & Big Data' at TU Dortmund University is about data analysis, data management and the targeted presentation of results. The course is aimed at all professional groups involved in the management and analysis of data, such as data scientists, business analysts, software developers, consultants, academic staff (university or non-university) or similar. The goal is to acquire modern knowledge in theory and practice of Data Science and Big Data projects. The exercises with real data sets as well as the option to write the final thesis based on your own data ('bring your own data') support the transfer of what has been learned into professional practice. The certificate program comprises ten courses and lasts nine months. After successful completion of the final examination, TU Dortmund University awards a certificate, which can be used to prove the expansion of competence.
You can find more details on the zhb's Data Science pages (in German).

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".Zum Lageplan
