Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts

The Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts offers its approx. 8,000 students a practically based education in 34 Bachelor and Master degree courses, promising good future prospects in the world of work. There is a wide range of courses, from Architecture and Design, technical courses and IT, to Applied Social Sciences and Economics. The creative departments train graphic and photographic designers, film-makers, object and interior designers, scenographers and architects. Their creative potential is reflected in outstanding results in international competitions as well as in numerous exhibitions and in the founding of businesses in the creative sector, and has developed into a strong economic factor for Dortmund.

Since 2010 the University of Applied Sciences and Arts uses the University Floor in the Dortmunder U for exhibitions, events, projects, academic exchange and public readings. In this way it is expanding its creative presence in Dortmund’s City Centre. The University of Applied Sciences and Arts plans to organize exhibitions in conjunction with its partners in the Dortmunder U, as it did in staging the 2010 photo-exhibitions The Market and In Dortmund’s Parks or the exhibition Orange in the U.

From 2011 the main focus of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in the Dortmunder U will be the founding of the Dortmund Institute of Advanced Moving Image Studies, with Professor Adolf Winkelmann as its Director. The Institute will devote itself to research topics with an international angle; provide services for the creative economy; and support teaching. By founding the Institute the University wants to make a contribution to the demands of the U as Centre for Art and Creativity. Close cooperation with municipal, academic, cultural and creativeeconomic institutions, as well as with other partners in the U, could enable far-reaching synergies.
