Technische Universität Dresden

The TU Dresden is among the top universities in Germany and Europe: strong in research, offering first-rate programmes with an overwhelming diversity, with close ties to culture, industry and society.

As a modern full-status university with 14 departments the university offers a comprehensive spectrum of research and education.

The History of the TU Dresden dates back to the Institution for Technical Education (Technische Bildungsanstalt Dresden) founded in 1828. Today, TU Dresden considers itself as a “university of synergies”, closely cooperating with external research institutions, cultural, industrial and social organisations. The university unites the natural and engineering sciences with the humanities and social sciences, as well as medicine. This wide range of disciplines, which is unique in Germany, brings with it the obligation for the university to promote interdisciplinarity and to contribute to the integration of science and society.

The big campus family of the TU Dresden consists of more than 36,000 students, 5,319 publicly funded staff members – among them 507 professors – and approximately 3,265 externally funded staff members and therefore one of the nine major technical universities in Germany.
