Research concentrations

Applied research and development is a key feature at Ruhr West. Three research concentrations have been developed. These research concentrations address the guiding themes of Ruhr West in the following ways:

  • Non-contact or minimally invasive methods
    Coordinator: Prof Dr Dirk Rüter at Faculty 4: Institute of Measuring and Sensor Technology
  • Positive Computing
    Coordinator: Prof Dr Stefan Geisler at Faculty 1: Institute of Computer Science
  • Water Economics
    Coordinators: Prof Dr Mark Oelmann, Faculty 2: Institute of Business Administration, and Prof Dr Markus Quirmbach, Faculty 3: Institute of Civil Engineering

‘One of my most important goals is to develop, expand and publicise our research concentrations. This is the only way for us to show the world who we are and in which research areas we are strong’, says Vice President Oliver Koch. ‘After all, as much as our degree programmes are products sought out by prospective students, our research concentrations too should be perceived by companies as an invitation to cooperate with us.’
