Creative inspiration between the Rhine and Ruhr: the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) is located in the European region with the highest density of institutions of higher learning. Created in 2003 by the merger of the universities of Duisburg and Essen, the UDE is the youngest university in North Rhine-Westphalia and one of the ten largest universities in Germany.
Both campuses are easy to reach and offer the students a broad academic spectrum with an international orientation - ranging from the humanities and social sciences to economics, engineering, natural sciences, and even medicine. Students from 130 countries are currently enrolled at the UDE. The 40,000 students can choose from a vast array of Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes.
In many disciplines, the UDE ranks among the top ten German research universities. The university emphasises research in the fields of nanosciences, biomedical sciences, urban systems, empirical research in education, and the transformation of contemporary societies.
The Support Center for (International) Engineering Students (SCIES) acts as a help desk for all study-related questions in the Department of Engineering. The mission of SCIES is to support all students at the Department of Engineering and to help them gain the most from their experience at the University of Duisburg-Essen. SCIES answers questions with regard to studies, helps in administrative matters, supports in finding accommodation, and is the first level of support for all of the students' questions.
