Special features regarding teaching

In addition to the integration of content beyond the boundaries of the traditional fields of work, the accelerated and intensified approaches to the digitalisation of teaching, including the first models of digital examination formats, due to the current (2020) pandemic situation should be mentioned.

Special features regarding the equipment

The GI maintains permanent hydrological and climatological measuring stations, mobile measuring equipment and a climate measuring bus. These are complemented by other measuring devices, a physical geography lab equipped with extensive state-of-the-art field and lab equipment, a wide range of PC workstations and a media teaching lab with a notebook kiosk. Literature databases are part of the services offered by the UB. In the climate field, crowdsourcing of air temperatures with bicycles - crowdbiking - was set up. A teaching server allows distance courses independent of the computing power of the stud. end devices.

Special features regarding research activities

Human-environmental relationships in urban regions form the main research focus of geography at Bochum. Physical Geography, Human Geography, Geomatics and specialised didactics successfully attract third party-funded projects in their respective core areas. In addition, they also cooperate with other departments on the Institute's shared research focus "Transformation of Urban Landscapes". Within the research, numerous stimuli are provided by the campus university, as well as the possibilities for cooperation within the framework of the University Alliance Ruhr.

Support for founders

A professor supports and advises spin-offs as a "science angel". So far there are three start-up projects.
