ALLES ING!



FROM YOUNG STUDENT TO SUCCESSFUL PROFESSOR - FEMALE ENGINEERS AT THE RUB

A lot of women teach, learn and do research at the Ruhr University of Bochum- from young students to successful professors, a varied experience of working and living together for women in different subject areas and with different research backgrounds. They tell us why they came to choose a technical profession and what their daily life looks like.

Studying Together

Karo, Franzi, Helen and Anna will soon complete their Masters in Civil Engineering at the RUB. Together, they prepare for the exams, play football and celebrate parties. Ballpoint, calculator and the “Bible” of their studies are the instruments they do not want to renounce to. more...

Step by Step

After her apprenticeship, Meliena Dziennus studied at a university of applied sciences and arts before she came to the RUB. Currently she is doing her Master's in Electrotechnology and Information Technology. more...

Look Me in the Eyes

Martina Frießem investigates how a new product reaches the customer’s head. In this, she makes use of a so called „Eye-Tracking System“. She works on this subject at the Chair of Industrial Sales Engineering in the faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the RUB. more...

The Pioneer

Dr.-Ing. Mandy Gerber was one of the first women to study Environmental Engineering. She is using her urge to help – together with her great curiosity – during the investigation of renewable energies by the Chair of Thermodynamics of the Ruhr-Uni. more...

Following the Light

Talking about her means talking about laser light: Doris Grosse dismantles little structures which even a microscope can no longer manage to depict. She works as a scientific employee at the Chair of Photonics and Teraherz Technology at the Ruhr-Uni. more...

PhD in Tunnel Construction

During her studying period at the RUB, Anna-Lena Hammer got to know and love the tunnel construction. Now she is teaching and researching at the University. The Civil Engineer shoots bolts into hardened shotcrete in order to test its compressive strength. more...

Currents in Detail

Jeanette Hussong is a Junior Professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Ruhr-Uni. Her special field is Fluid Mechanics. Thanks to the smallest particles, she has been researching lately how fast the current flows in miniature channels. more...

The Globetrotter

Currently she is writing her bachelor thesis for a few months in Singapore. Otherwise Katrin Weiden studies IT Security by the faculty of Electro- and Information Technology in Bochum. Now she is working to increase the security by microchips on smartcards. more...

Totally Convinced

Thanks to the open day at the Ruhr-University of Bochum a few years ago she got totally convinced: Having her finished her studies, Judith Möller now works as a mechanical engineer and is writing her doctoral dissertation at the Chair of Thermodynamics. more...

A spontaneous decision

Her favorite subject at school was maths, at the university she decided in favour of mechanical engineering and control technology. Today, Prof. Tamara Nestorovic leads the team of mechanical adaptive systems at the Ruhr University of Bochum. more...

Logical and creative

A particular attraction lies in the connection between logic and creativity for Julia Niekamp. She is experiencing this combination in her Mechanical Engineering study like in her job at the RUB and she hope to find it again in her future working life. more...

On the Construction Site

Studying mathematics would have been too dry in her opinion. Instead, she decided to study Civil Engineering at the Ruhr University of Bochum. Recently, in Stockholm, she had the opportunity to gain her first practical experience in the field of construction management, directly on the construction site. more...

In Good Hands

Johanna Pfaff is doing her PhD at the Chair of Fluid Separations at the RUB. People who are interested in technology, who can deal with problems and don’t let themselves be discouraged by the theoretical basics are in good hands in Process Engineering. more...

Gathering Information

Prof. Llona Rolfes leads the institute of Microwave Systems at the RUB. She studied Electro- and Information Technology. Schoolgirls interested in technological subjects, she recommends to gather information on the campus before starting their studies. more...

The Globetrotter

Currently she is writing her bachelor thesis for a few months in Singapore. Otherwise Katrin Weiden studies IT Security by the faculty of Electro- and Information Technology in Bochum. Now she is working to increase the security by microchips on smartcards. more...

Enjoying the view

During her breaks, Lena Wollenweber enjoys the fantastic view over Ruhr valley from the canteen terrace. She studied Mechanical Engineering at the Ruhr University of Bochum and has been working since then as a scientific employee at the Chair of Particle Technology. more...
