University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr)

The University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr) is an alliance of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, TU Dortmund University and the University of Duisburg-Essen, the three academic powerhouses of Germany’s thriving Ruhr area, the Ruhrgebiet.


Previously a center for coal and steel manufacturing, the Ruhrgebiet is now a green, thriving cultural center that has
maintained its emphasis on advanced research. With more than 110,000 students, 17,000 faculty and an annual budget of €1,2 billion, UA Ruhr is one of Germany’s largest academic hubs.


The office in New York promotes transatlantic collaboration in research and education between the three UA Ruhr universities and partners in North America by offering student  and faculty exchanges, internship programs, and bilateral partnerships.
