20 years of Safety and Hazard Defence

How do you prevent incidents in industrial plants? How should we prepare for natural disasters such as floods, fires and storms? These are the questions being addressed by students in the Safety and Hazard Defence program. As a cooperation between the University of Magdeburg, the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences and the Institute for Fire and Disaster Prevention Heyrothsberge, both the bachelor's and the consecutive master's program offer a variety of insights into theory and practice. This October, the course celebrates its 20th anniversary.

All help centers concentrated

The term awareness translates as consciousness and attention. The new awareness portal of the University of Magdeburg, which went online on October 11, wants to create awareness for discrimination, but also for the quality of studies and teaching. The portal is now intended to stand for the entirety of the university and, above all, to be available to all members of the university who are also anonymously looking for help or contact persons or would like to inform themselves.

If you look at the media coverage, you regularly come across the first figures on how parties might perform. But what exactly do these figures actually say? How much should we rely on them? And are forecasts, projections and co all the same? Political scientist Dr. Benjamin Höhne talks about this in an interview.

To Magdeburg for Biomedical Engineering

The University of Magdeburg offers a successful bachelor's degree program in medical engineering. At the interface of engineering and healthcare, subjects such as electrical engineering, physics and mathematics are just as much in focus as anatomy and computer science. The course itself is closely linked to the "Stimulate" research campus. State-of-the-art research and development work is carried out in Magdeburg's Port of Science, with the help of which new solutions and imaging technologies for medical procedures are developed.

From the lecture hall to the Hockenheimring

Since 2008, motor sports enthusiasts from all departments have been able to get involved with the student initiative UMD Racing e.V.. Together, they develop and build their own racing car with which they compete in the "Formula Student" race at the Hockenheimring, an international competition among students. In less than a year, a Formula car is created in interdisciplinary teamwork - since last year even exclusively with electric motors.

Menstrual products for free

The provision of free menstrual products in public spaces is repeatedly the subject of polarizing debates. There are frequent discussions about necessity, feasibility and financing. At the University of Magdeburg, a pilot project started on July 1, 2023, which sets a clear signal with the installation of 10 dispensers for period products. This is an important topic, since at the University of Magdeburg alone, an estimated 42% of all students need menstrual products.

Starting over at university

New surroundings, new opportunities? What is it like to start over in a foreign country? While still in Syria, Mohamad Alhussein Saoud earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in economics at the University of Aleppo. Today, he is working on his doctorate - in Magdeburg.  After arriving as a refugee in 2015, he first became passionately involved with other refugees, and now also with students at the University of Magdeburg.
