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.
Three (former) CompEng students - Tarik Sahin, Hakan Bayer, and Salih Enes Tiryaki - have started a project, developing an intelligent garbage can, which is expected to become a start-up in the future. The idea is to make waste recycling more efficient for consumers, supported by an AI algorithm, and thus to sort waste as purely as possible into recyclable raw materials.
"BreakING the Glass Ceiling - early installation of professional networks for female engineers" is the launch of a very special mentoring program for female students at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, just in time for Diversity Day. It focuses primarily on contact with experienced female leaders in "typical" male domains. Those interested can apply now.
On September 21 & 22, the career event goes into the next round! CrossING offers motivated engineering students from all faculties of the RUB an annual platform to support them in their career path and to connect them with potential employers as well as national and international entrepreneurs.
Due to the rising incidence of corona and based on new guidelines, the Faculty Academic Annual Celebration will be entirely digital. The celebration will take place on 3rd December 2021 from 5 p.m. to approximately 7 p.m. You can expect a varied and interactive live broadcast from the Audimax, where you can guess along and maybe learn some new things about the faculty. Of course, we would like to invite all members of the faculty to this event. If you would like to follow the broadcast, you can still register until 28.11. - you will then receive your personal link before the event. We hope to catch up with the personal exchange especially for our graduates next spring at an outdoor reception. Click here to register.
