Studium Oecologicum

The studium oecologicum is an additional certificate that students can acquire parallel to their studies at TU Dortmund University. Please note that the certificate is generally offered in German, but it may be possible to complete the certificate in English if courses are available. For this, three modules with a total of 10 credit points must be taken and successfully completed:

  • an interdisciplinary basic module
  • one in-depth module from the student's own subject area, if possible
  • one in-depth module from another subject area

The Department of Statistics is part of the subject area of Science and Technology. From our course catalog, the following courses, for example, were in-depth modules in the studium oecologicum in the winter semester 2021/22:

  • Stochastische Prozesse (Spatial and Spatial-Temporal Statistics): Stochastic processes are applied, for example, in the analysis of data for flood statistics
  • Qualitätssicherung (Reliability and Material Fatigue Statistics): Quality assurance deals, for example, with the question of how material consumption can be reduced and thus made more sustainable.

Students can take these courses in their bachelor's or master's program and at the same time receive credit for the studium oecologicum.

As an example for an in-depth module from another subject area than Science and Technology, the Department of Statistics offered in the winter semester 2021/22:

  • Data Literacy (Elementary Data Understanding)

Further information on the studium oecologicum can be found on the pages of the Sustainability Office (please also refer to their German-language page if you are interested)..

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
