Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts was founded in 1971 and focuses on study and teaching towards practical problem-solving, taught by highly experienced professors, cementing the link between theory and practice. True to this philosophy, the university offers over 50 study options in seven different faculties: applied social sciences, architecture, design, computer sciences, economics, engineering, information technology and electrical engineering. More than 12,500
students are currently enrolled at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
At Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the interdisciplinary Institute for Digital Transformation of Application and Living Domains (IDiAL) focuses on intelligent technical systems. The structure and behaviour of intelligent technical systems is characterized by an inherent multi-paradigm shift in the scientific domains of computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering. It is based on the conviction that these systems can only be designed with a holistic and interdisciplinary approach in cross-domain projects. With consideration of electronics, mechanics, control engineering and software engineering, appropriate development methods and tools are designed and validated.
IDiAL scientists are developing intelligent products for tomorrow, tailored to the application domains health and demographic change, resource efficiency and sustainable energy, as well as mobility and infrastructure.
