TU Dresden - Description

The Technische Universität Dresden is one of the top universities in Germany and Europe: strong in research and considered first-rate with respect to the range and the quality of the study programmes it offers, it is also closely interconnected with culture, business and society. As a modern comprehensive, multi-discipline university and with its 14 faculties it has a broad and diverse scientific spectrum that only few other universities in Germany are able to match. The large campus family of the TU Dresden is comprised of 37,000 students and approximately 7,700 employees – among them 492 professors. With 124 courses the TU Dresden offers a full range of studies, as a basis for interdisciplinary learning and research.

Description of TU Dresden

Since its foundation as a technical college in 1828, Technische Universität Dresden has grown into one of the largest and most successful universities in Germany. Today, TU Dresden has more than 37.000 students, 500 professors, 7900 members of staff and an annual third-party income exceeding 250 million Euro. While retaining its traditional strengths in the technological sciences, it has developed into a comprehensive university with a strong base in engineering, the natural sciences, the humanities, social and economic sciences and medicine. We firmly believe that excellence in research and teaching can be realized best by representing all academic disciplines, thereby stimulating interdisciplinary cross-fertilization, targeted dynamic growth, pioneering spirit and innovation within the university, with our local partners and the global science community. The complex global challenges of the 21st century can only be tackled successfully by interplay of all disciplines, working together to raise the right questions and to develop appropriate solutions.
After a highly competitive selection process, a panel of high-ranking academics from leading international institutions voted TU Dresden into the group of eleven German Universities of Excellence, in June 2012. In addition to the strategy for the further development of the university’s policy, structure and organizational culture, its outstanding strengths and concepts in the areas of micro-electronics, biomedicine and bioengineering have been particularly applauded.
The City of Dresden is not only famous for its outstanding beauty and culture, it also houses a vibrant scientific community which is quite unique in Germany. Together with TU Dresden, world-class government research institutes and research-active cultural institutions have established the DRESDEN-concept Research Alliance with more than 10,000 scientists, to share staff, resources, infrastructure and ideas, to the benefit of education and innovation.
