Technische Universität Chemnitz Technische Universität Chemnitz

Technische Universität Chemnitz offers the best conditions for continuous study and excellent research. It always appears in the top positions in university rankings. For more than 10.500 students, among them about 1.500 foreign students from more than 70 countries, the university offers a broad range of subjects and an interdisciplinary course of study.

Across boundaries of subjects of studies and faculties TU Chemnitz closely links teaching and research in Engineering and Natural Science, Mathematics and Computer Science with Economics and Business Administration as well as Humanities or Behavioral and Social Sciences.

The university has developed a future-oriented approach of development in order to strengthen research structures across faculties of the TU. Three major research areas are an expression of this interdisciplinarity:

• Energy-efficient production processes
• The human factor in technology
• Intelligent systems and materials

Unlike the majority of German universities, TU Chemnitz has a campus. Lecture theatres, libraries, laboratories, student housing, sports grounds and the university canteen can be reached in less than five minutes.

In Chemnitz, accommodation is not a concern either: Ten residential blocks are immediately on campus, for 100 students there are more than 18 rooms in halls - the federal average is only ten. And also on the free housing market inexpensive accommodation can easily be found.

The cultural capacity of TU Chemnitz goes far beyond the university: No matter if it is “Children’s University" or reading nights, campus parties or Semester parties, public lectures or cultural events - for a long time now, the guests have not just come from the university.
