Before each winter semester, the faculties of mathematics and physics offer preliminary courses in mathematics for engineers and mathematical aids in physics, respectively, to help students get started in their studies. The preliminary courses usually take place in September. Participation (without registration) in a pre-course is recommended but, as mentioned, not obligatory. More info about the preliminary courses you find here.
As an important requirement for successful study and with regard to later professional activity, practical training is an essential component of our Bachelor’s degree program in Mechanical Engineering. Therefore, two internships over a total period of 20 weeks are mandatory.
An initial basic craft internship of six weeks should be completed before the start of studies if possible, as experience shows that there is little time for this during the course of studies due to examinations, university internships, excursions, etc. in the lecture-free period. The specialized internship of 14 weeks (also called “Berufspraktische Ausbildung”) should be completed in the 7th semester. Further information you find here.
The introductory events are designed to make it easier for first-year students to begin their studies. During these events, they receive important information about the faculty and its facilities, as well as explanations about the curriculum, study structure, and exam planning. More information about this year’s introductory events you find here.
Moodle is a learning platform that enables the delivery of learning content via the Internet. Moodle courses can thus be optimally used as a supplement to classroom lectures. Here, the faculty and lecturers provide comprehensive information on the organization of studies, but also on courses. We recommend that you register for our “MB-Info” course. This will provide you with all current and relevant information.Click here for self-registration into the course.
FlexNow is a website that all students of the engineering faculties as well as the Faculty of Economics of RUB use to manage their exams. These students can use FlexNow to register or deregister from exams. Here you find more information..
Students of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum automatically receive a personal e-mail address. You will need this e-mail address to use various services, but you will also receive important information about it. Further info you find here.
For the first semester there is a fixed timetable, which is published on this page. For the following semesters there is an electronic course catalog, from which you have to search for the corresponding courses. The course catalog you find here.
With the help of eCampus, many aspects of organizing your studies can be done conveniently from home or from a network workstation on campus: From accessing your personal RUB mail account, to printing documents such as your certificate of enrollment or semester ticket, to accessing course catalogs. Read here more about eCampus.
As part of your enrollment, you will receive a so-called RUB-LoginID. With the RUB-LoginID and the corresponding password, RUB students can log in to the various digital services of RUB. Here you find more information.
