The Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Die Ruhr-Universität Bochum Founded in 1962, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) was the first new university founded in the Federal Republic of Germany after the end of World War II. Located in the Ruhr region, Europe's largest single economic zone, it is Germany's eighth largest university. Today, more than forty years after the RUB was established, more than half the population of what was once Europe's "coal pot", dominated by mining and steelworks, is employed in the service sector. The university is very much a part of this structural change. With close to 35,000 students, some 6700 employees and 433 professors, RUB is proud of its pioneering role in many fields.
