Who's teaching at the NDU? Who are the "creative heads" in charge of guiding and running the University? What are the research subjects and areas of expertise of our professors and assistants? Here you'll find not only contact details but also short bios and portraits of the NDU Team.


We're always looking forward to visitors in person – but if you aren't around, now there's a great way of getting to know our University at at distance and experiencing the creative atmosphere 'by proxy'. You can start the 3D "Virtual Walk" in any recent Web browser.
