Technische Universität Dresden

Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) is both one of Germany’s largest technical universities and one of Germany’s eleven Universities of Excellence. With 17 faculties organized under the roofs of five schools, TU Dresden offers a full range of academic disciplines and research areas with a strong focus on technology and the natural sciences.



TU Dresden’s excellence in research revolves around five interdisciplinary research priority areas:

1. Health Sciences, Biomedicine and Bioengineering
2. Information Technology and Microelectronics
3. Smart Materials and Structures
4. Energy, Mobility and Environment
5. Culture and Societal Change.

An important factor for TU Dresden’s outstanding research performance is its close collaboration with the local non-university research institutions and researching culture institutions, which are strongly represented throughout Dresden. With the DRESDEN concept research alliance, TU Dresden has created a unique setting to utilize synergies in research, teaching, infrastructure and administration while, at the same time, increasing the visibility of Dresden-based research excellence.
