Dear Friends of the TH Georg Agricola,
since 1816 the TH Georg Agricola University has a special position under the big range of universities in Germany.
His unique features are represented with its specific culture of almost 200 years of tradition and his special profile: The TH stands for tremendous practice-oriented engineering education. The TH promotes a kind teaching and learning culture it also stands for frankness for young people impartially from their origin. The variety of study courses is flexible which helps students to organize their studies individually.
The TH has a very good esteem. Not only his students and his alumni, but also partners in economy, science and society, as well as national and international partners appreciate the university’s reputation.
The TH is leading university on the field of raw material science in Germany. The university works with well known universities all around the world on the same level.
„Think global, act local“– with this slogan the TH identifies himself with the Ruhr area and especially with the city of Bochum. The TH works dedicatedly together with other local universities in the network of UniverCity Bochum and participates on the structural change of the city and region.
On the one hand we have a high request of engineers and on the other hand we have the growing number of young students at the TH. Considering these requirements the TH has a bright future perspective and is carrying out this way.
