Welcome to the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering Sciences! Here you can find out what you need to know to start your studies in these special times. This news is updated regularly, so it's definitely worth coming back!

We are pleased that you have decided to study with us! You are surely asking yourself a couple of questions about the start of your studies, which we will be happy to answer here.

How does the Corona situation affect my first university semester?
The Ruhr-Uni Bochum is currently working under Covid-19 conditions. For you, this means that you can expect a mixture of face-to-face and online courses in the winter semester 2020/21. More details about your timetable will be published here soon.
General information about the Covid19 conditions at the RUB can be found at www.rub.de/de/informationen-zu-corona.

When does the semester start?
The lectures for first semester students in the winter semester 2020/21 will start on November 2, 2020.
To make sure that you can find your way around your studies despite the restrictions caused by Covid-19, the BI & UTRM student councils invite you to their introductory program in the end of October. There you can find out more about everyday university life, the course content and important contact persons. You will also get to know some of your fellow students and professors. More information about the dates and the program will follow soon.

What information is still relevant for me?
On the central RUB pages you can find more information about starting your studies in Corona times.
If you have any specific questions, you can contact the student councils or the student counsellors at any time.

We are looking forward to meeting you in October!
