Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts (German: Fachhochschule Dortmund) is a Fachhochschule in Dortmund, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany with 12,300 students, and 669 staff, 232 of which are professors. It is situated in the Ruhr area, the fourth largest urban area in Europe. The Fachhochschule was created by a merger of several institutions of higher learning in 1971. Owing to its history as separate institutions, it consists of three campuses in different parts of Dortmund. The departments of mechanical and electrical engineering are located at Sonnenstraße near the city center. The department of design has its own campus at Max-Ophüls-Platz while the departments of social work, economics, computer science and architecture are housed in several buildings next to the Technical University of Dortmund campus in the suburb of Eichlinghofen. Additional offices in the city centre are used for administrative purposes.
