Lectures

Winter Semester

Bachelor

The lecture provides basic knowledge in microbiology with emphasis on bacteriology. After a short introduction the following topics will be discussed: 1. cell structures and systematics of bacteria, 2. the prokaryotic cell, 3. growth and nutrition, 4. endospores, 5. sterilization, disinfection, food preservation, 6. degradation of organic substances, 7. oxidations of inorganic compounds, 8. bacteria as "recycling experts" - the major material cycles: C, N, S

Master

The lecture Technical Biochemistry deals with the industrial application of biochemical processes in technical plants, such as biogas plant, citric acid production, biodiesel extraction or biotechnical vanillin production. During the lecture, process examples and material flows are discussed and consolidated in joint exercises. Practical courses are offered.

Summer Semester

Bachelor

The lecture provides basic knowledge in microbiology with emphasis on bacteriology. After a short introduction the following topics will be discussed: 1. cell structures and systematics of bacteria, 2. the prokaryotic cell, 3. growth and nutrition, 4. endospores, 5. sterilization, disinfection, food preservation, 6. degradation of organic substances, 7. oxidations of inorganic compounds, 8. bacteria as "recycling experts" - the major material cycles: C, N, S

 

Biochemical relationships are considered at the molecular and nucleic acid levels. The focus is on the organization and dynamics of genetic material, its replication, mutation and repair mechanisms, and gene expression.

Based on the lecture "Fundamentals of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology" of the bachelor's program, this lecture will provide advanced expertise on the topics of recombinant proteins as drugs. Special emphasis is placed on biopharmacy and formulation of recombinant proteins, new active ingredients and their procedural production, new developments in the fields of proteomics, genomics and genetic analysis techniques.

 

The biosynthesis of biomolecules such as nucleic acids, proteins and fatty acids, as well as linear and cyclic metabolic pathways, including the citric acid cycle, are taught. In addition, a basic introduction to the secondary metabolism of microorganisms and plants is provided.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the Dortmund West interchange, where the A45 Sauerland line crosses the B1/A40 Ruhr expressway. The Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to Campus-Nord. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From here, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 15 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association. DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

 

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, the AirportExpress takes just over 20 minutes to Dortmund's main train station, and from there, the S-Bahn takes you to the university. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
