Study machine learning at RUB

Die RUB bietet ein reichhaltiges Lehrangebot in den Bereichen der künstlichen Intelligenz und des maschinellen Lernens. Die folgende Grafik illustriert die verschiedenen Lehrveranstaltungen eingeordnet in den Studienverlauf Bachelor/Master (oben/unten) und nach Theorie/Methoden/Anwendung (von links nach rechts). Die Verbindungslinien repräsentieren thematische Verbindungen zwischen den Veranstaltungen (rot: Voraussetzung, schwarz: thematisch verwandt, violett: komplementär).

This degree programme is unique, because in addition to IT-related contents, students also acquire an understanding and competencies regarding numerous practical applications. Interdisciplinary exercises and projects prepare students for their professional lives, where interdisciplinary collaboration will become essential.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields:

  • Engineering Informatics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Computational linguistics
  • Cryptology and Theoretical Informatics
  • Neuroinformatics
  • Operations Research

This degree programme is unique, because it is highly relevant, future-oriented, international and bilingual. A young, highly motivated team of professors conducts cutting-edge research in future-oriented fields and offers students the best possible supervision.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields:

  • Machine learning
  • Algorithms and complexity
  • Data mining and statistical learning
  • Software development and verification
  • Distributed systems
  • Databases and information systems
  • IT Security

This degree programme is unique, because it is the longest-established CompEng degree programme in Germany, providing, within an international, informal setting, a comprehensive, labour market-targeted training in computer-aided construction and mechanics and laying excellent groundwork for a future executive career in research institutes and the industry.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields:

  • Finite Element Modelling & Simulation
  • Computer-aided Construction
  • Computer-aided Mechanics
  • Communication competencies in an international context

Since winter semester 2013/2014 the Faculty of Physics at Technische Universität Dortmund and the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at Ruhr-Universität Bochum together offer a master programme in Medical Physics. You can choose a field of specialisation from the following core subjects of the programme:

  • Applied Physics in Medicine
  • Imaging Techniques
  • Biophysics
  • Neuro-Informatics
  • Clinical Medical Physics, Accelerator Physics

This degree programme is unique, because it is an English-language, strongly research-focused and comprehensively interdisciplinary degree programme, systematically integrating philosophy, psychology, neuroinformatics and empirical neuroscience.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields:

  • systematic philosophy
  • psychology
  • neuroinformatics
  • empirical neuroscience
  • cognitive science

This degree programme is unique, because it paves the way into the fascinating world of mathematics by providing a sound introduction to logical abstract reasoning and conducting proofs. Students enrolled in the B.Sc. degree programme can choose which individual branches of mathematics to specialise in as early as in the second year.

It provides the opportunity to specialise in the following fields

  • Algebra, topology and algebraic geometry
  • Stochastics, statistics and mathematical physics
  • Differential geometry / dynamic systems
  • Complex analysis
  • Numerical mathematics
  • Cryptography
  • Theoretical / practical computer science

The International Graduate School of Neuroscience (IGSN) offers an english language PhD programme in all aspects of neuroscience from the molecular level to higher cognitive functions.

The IGSN was founded in October 2001 as an initiative of the Northrhine-Westfalian government to provide a forum for PhD candidates with superior academic track records. The IGSN offers an international network of renowned scientists, world leading supervisors and provides an excellent scientific environment.

This website is intended to give an overview of the ever growing machine learning and artificial intelligence research done at the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB). Since RUB researchers from a broad range of disciplines contribute to both fields, this website acts as an up-to-date register for interested researchers and students.
