Partnerships between TU Dortmund and other Universities

The Statistics faculty at TU Dortmund maintains good contacts with several statistics faculties abroad. These exchange programmes portray an important part of bilateral relations. 

In particular, TU Dortmund upholds relations with the statistics faculties of School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield (UK), the Department of Statistics & Statistical Laboratory at the Iowa State University (Ames, USA) as well as the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland (New Zealand).

With regards to the exchange programme with the Iowa State University in Ames, extensive agreements are in place. For example, exchange students coming to Dortmund are allocated the specific established place as academic help for a chair of the faculty.
