University of Bremen Information
Universität Bremen, or the University of Bremen, is a public university in Germany notably known for its excellence in the fields of law (European law), mathematics, physics, microbiology, industrial engineering, digital media, and geosciences (marine geosciences). The University of Bremen ranking is the joint 33rd best university in Germany, and the joint 508th top in the world. Similarly rated German colleges include Technische Universität Braunschweig, University of Rostock, University of Bayreuth, University of Giessen and the University of Greifswald.
In 2005, it won the “Stadt der Wissenschaft” (City of Science) award, which is given annually by the “Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft” (Foundation for German Science).
The University of Bremen opened in 1971 as a science complex. At the time, the city of Bremen had been more oriented to business than academia. In the 1980’s, however, when the engineering and science departments were established, business and academics started to become more intertwined. Since then the University has become a host of higher level research and nationally recognised institution.
The University of Bremen, along with six other German universities, had actively participated, from 196 to 2001, in a Volkswagen Foundation-funded pilot scheme which sought for structural reform in university administration. The project improved the relationship of the teaching and research units and of the administration. Another project that contributed to the University’s success is the “Notebook University” project which made it one of Germany’s leaders in the field of digital media teaching.
There are 12 faculties in the University: Biology/Chemistry; Physics/Electrical Engineering; Mathematics/Computer Science; Geosciences, Production Engineering—Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering; Business Studies and Economics; Cultural Studies; Social Sciences; Human and Health Sciences; Languages and Literary Studies; Pedagogy and Educational Sciences; and Law.
Research is one of the University’s main strong points. It collaborates with other institutions, like the Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar and Ocean Research, and it has its own research centres, like the Research Centre of Ocean Margins. The centre had been one of the three first research centres of the German Research Foundation.
The University of Bremen has produced many leading names in various fields. It also has a global influence since it accommodates students, teachers, and research from all over the world. At present, its current population is composed of people from 126 countries worldwide.
