Bielefeld University - Description

Bielefeld University combines classical academic tradition with innovative research and teaching. It was founded as a new type of university in 1969 with the aims of re-establishing the unity between research and teaching advocated by Humboldt, and of opening up the frontiers between the disciplines. The university has succeeded in maintaining and developing essential elements of this reform concept despite a considerable increase in student numbers. Bielefeld University has attained an outstanding position among national and international academic institutions on the strength of its research achievements and unique courses of studies, its technology transfer and further education programmes. Anybody who has experienced life in the established university towns of venerable academic tradition will probably remember dashing from one end of the place to the other to get from lecture to seminar, to borrow books from the University Library, to have lunch in the refectory, or to register in the Students' Office. These people will appreciate the advantages of Bielefeld University: all the faculties and institutions are housed under one roof. All the indispensable service centres are easily reached: for instance the University Computer Centre, which offers students access to computers and to the Internet, the Writing Lab, or the much...

Description of Bielefeld University

Bielefeld University - Transcending Boundaries
Interdisciplinary - Communicative - Innovative

Bielefeld University was founded in 1969 with an explicit research assignment and a mission to provide high-quality research-oriented teaching. Today it encompasses 13 faculties‍ ‍ covering a broad spectrum of disciplines in the humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and technology. With about 22,000 students in 108 degree courses and about 2,750 staff members (including 264 professors and lecturers as well as 1,380 academic staff) it is one of Germany's medium-sized universities.

Since its foundation, Bielefeld University has developed guided by the principle of interdisciplinarity. Behind this lies the conviction that complex problems can no longer be adequately addressed with disciplinary approaches alone. In this case, interdisciplinarity stands for a spectrum of multiple perspective approaches of varying kinds and intensity. The University building itself stands as an architectural statement of interdisciplinarity. It brings together nearly all the facilities under one roof, which is unique in Germany. Its striking architectural structure draws people together from the most varied of areas over short distances. At Bielefeld University, a culture of communication has developed between teaching staff and students, between scientists, university management and administrative staff, whose openness towards new and unconventional ideas is characteristic. This culture formed the basis of important forward-thinking decisions and has significantly contributed to the successes of the University. An example of this is the establishment of the Faculty of Technology (1990), as well as the Faculty of Health Sciences that is singular in Germany. Both these faculties prove the University's institutional ability to innovate. The research profile of Bielefeld University is oriented to big issues relevant to science and society, primarily at the productive interfaces between disciplines. The University also distinguishes itself in its teaching through its specific profile that is based on dense networks across disciplines.

According to the most relevant rankings and assessments, Bielefeld University Library is one of the best and most service-oriented university libraries in Germany
