Our students and various university partners would like to present themselves and their projects at a winter market. In addition to mulled wine and children's punch, the initiatives will also be selling numerous Christmas treats. The winter market will take place on December 5, 2023 on the Magistrale in front of Building 16 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.


The Rector proposes to the Senate that Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manja Krüger from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering be elected Vice-Rector for Research, Technology and Equal Opportunities. The position has been vacant since Prof. Dr. Borna Relja moved to the University of Ulm. Professor Krüger has an excellent track record. She has DFG experience as an applicant and reviewer, is responsibly involved in a planned cross-faculty research training group (successor to Micro-Macro Interaction) and, as one of the few female professors in the engineering departments, acts as a role model. To the curriculum vitae (in german)


The Institute of Physics opens its doors on November 4, 2023 from 1 to 5 pm. All curious people are invited to building 16 for the 2nd "Day of Physics". On this Saturday, the physicists will offer hands-on experiments, lectures, insights into current research and, of course, all information about physics studies, whether Bachelor, Master or teacher training.

Good scientific practice

The constitutionally guaranteed freedom of science is inextricably linked to the responsibility to adhere to the principles of good scientific practice. Our university has drawn up a "Statute for Safeguarding Good Scientific Practice". (only in German)

New appointment at the university

The economist Prof. Dr. Marcel Lichters has headed the Chair of Marketing at the Faculty of Economics since October. His focus is on business marketing education. Among other things, his research focuses on how scents and hormones influence our purchasing decisions and how companies manipulate consumers. 

Unfortunately, the article is only available in German.

Rector elections

In 2024, a new rector will be elected at our university. The Senate has appointed a search committee to look for suitable candidates. It has prepared and published an advertisement for the position, but is also accepting suggestions and proposals. Who accepts them and what do you have to consider?

Award for research prototype

A research prototype developed at the VLBA Lab of our university brings state-of-the-art artificial intelligence solutions into industrial application. For this, the developed artifact "Fujitsu BestPlace" has now been awarded the "Fujitsu Global Innovation Award for Intellectual Property".


At the start of the 2023/24 winter semester, Science Minister Prof. Dr. Armin Willingmann expects to see an overall increase in the number of first-year students in Saxony-Anhalt. Their number had fallen steadily over the past four years, from more than 9,700 in 2018 to just under 7,600 last year.
Willingmann referred to the growing range of studies in relation to the billion-dollar settlement of the U.S. chip company Intel in Magdeburg. The English-language master's program "Advanced Semiconductor Nanotechnologies" is starting at OVGU. There is also a new innovative course of study in the future field of "Artificial Intelligence", in which a total of five universities in the state are involved. The first students will begin their studies at OVGU in the Bachelor's program "AI Engineering - Artificial Intelligence in Engineering".
