Welcome to the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering! Here we have compiled the most important information for your start of studies and the first days at the RUB for you - from the programme of the student councils for the upcoming "Ersti-Week" and the "Ersti-Moodle-courses" to RUB tools that you should use and contact persons for subject-specific questions about starting your studies.

The tandem language learning program offers STEM students of RUB an individual and subject-specific form of language training. In the exchange with a MINT tandem partner who speaks the target language as a native speaker or at a high-level, language skills can be expanded in a subject-related context and technical vocabulary can be acquired.
With the new Summer School "Blue Engineering", students of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering will have the opportunity from 20.09.2022 to 22.09.2022 to deal with environmental policy and ethics issues in an interdisciplinary way. The three-day event primarily offers space for discussions and own ideas, which can include topics such as car-free cities, virtual water, technology design and evaluation. The Summer School is organised and run by the Chair of Environmental Engineering + Ecology, supported by Blue Engineering AG. Interested parties can register now.
From 22 August to 11 September 2022, the Chair of Computing in Engineering headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus König, together with the BIMKIT project and the WORLDFACTORY Start-up Center, will provide information on the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in civil engineering and present various demonstrators live. Interested citizens can expect a poster exhibition and meet-the-scientist afternoons in addition to demonstrations in the Blue Square experience room at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
With the new Sustainability Officer Prof. Dr. Andreas Löschel and the Sustainability Task Force, RUB is now pushing ahead with its sustainability goals. The Task Force Team also includes Prof. Dr. Günther Meschke, head of the Chair of Statics and Dynamics, and Prof.'in Dr.-Ing. Annette Hafner, head of the Chair of Resource Efficient Construction. Interested RUB members can contribute to the Sustainability Think Tank, which will be in regular exchange with the Task Force, on 07 December 2022 and 16 January 2023.
Prof.'in Dr.-Ing. Annette Hafner explained in her lecture "Building for climate change and resource conservation - current approaches", which she presented during the kick-off event of Humboldtⁿ, the Sustainability Initiative of the universities in NRW, how we can build in a climate-neutral and sustainable way and recycle everything we use. Now those interested can listen to the lecture online as part of a feature on Deutschlandfunk Nova.
All female professors, staff and students of the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering are cordially invited to the Women's General Assembly on Thursday, 14 July 2022 at 10 am via Zoom video conference.
The initiative "Voluntary Scientific Year" is a one-year educational program offered by the engineering faculties - comparable to the Federal Volunteer Service - in which selected high school graduates and prospective students can acquire exclusive impressions of university studies and research projects.
Not exactly eye-catchers at the moment are the abandoned concrete buckets that sporadically flank the footpaths of the I row and were originally intended as trash cans. But something is happening to the buckets, as they are being redesigned into new favorite places as part of the reCYCL:ING project, an initiative of the PR team and the Faculty Dean's Office in collaboration with the RUB Sustainability Office and the Botanical Garden. Faculty members are invited to make the campus greener and a bit more sustainable by adopting a bucket.
The Project Office of the Faculty (PBU) offers students a comprehensive range of support services. All last year's activities of the PBU have been published in an annual report and can now be read.
