The internationally renowned Technische Universität Berlin is located in Germany’s capital city at the heart of Europe. Our academic activities are focused on achieving sharply-defined goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications and a modern approach to university administration. The TU Berlin strives to promote the dissemination of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress through adherence to the core principles of excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry are an important aspect in these endeavors.
The roots of the Technische Universität Berlin and predecessor institutions date back to the time of Frederick the Great. These included important educational establishments of the Prussian State such as the Königliche Bergakademie zu Berlin (Royal Mining Academy) established in 1770, the Königliche Bauakademie zu Berlin (Royal Building Academy) founded in 1799, and the Königliche Gewerbeakademie zu Berlin (Royal Trade Academy), which opened its doors in 1827. The Königlich Technische Universität zu Berlin (Royal Technical Academy) arose in 1879 through a merger of the Royal Trade and Building Academies. The architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel, whose structures even today adorn Berlin’s cityscape, and Christian W. Beuth, the “Father of Engineering”, were instrumental in establishing these institutions.
Students, Scholars and guests hace access to on of Germany´s most modern science libraries with its three million items in various media and 30 000 square meters of floor space. 1300 work stations in various forms, campus-wide wi-fi, 300 computer workstations, several meeting rooms, multimedia workstations and a lounge area are used intensely by as many as 3100 visitors each day.
In addition to our main campus situated in Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district in the heart of the “City West” area, TU Berlin also maintains two further large campuses in Berlin. One is located in the historical industrial district Wedding, and the other on the property of the famous “Gasometer” in the Schöneberg district. Individual laboratories, TU buildings and sports halls are also scattered around the city. In late 2012, the university inaugurated its first satellite campus on the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt.
Berlin is a cosmopolitan city: people from 195 different cultures and countries help to mold and to shape the colorful cityscape.
Berlin is dynamic: The impacts of the political and historical upheavals of the 19th and 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. Virtually no other major city has reinvented itself as often. The formerly divided city has emerged as a European metropolis with an international flair and strong global appeal.
Berlin offers excellent quality of life, it is indeed a city that combines innumerable parks and green areas with urban living. Each neighborhood has its own character – ranging from “multicultural” to middle-class.
Berlin is creative: a big city promoting big ideas. Worldwide, the “City on the Spree” is in high demand for those wishing to establish companies or to exploit marketable ideas. The high number of academic spin-off companies has since become an important economic and business location factor.
Berlin is culture: the city’s lively cultural scene is characterized by more than 170 museums, more than 40 theaters and opera houses, in addition to innumerable galleries, concert halls, cinemas and other event locations.
The great potention of the university, its members and partners makes TU Berlin one of the most attractive addresses in the German capital.
