Business Administration/ Industrial Engineering B.Sc.
Actually yes, it gets very stressful at some times and you will have to work hard, but I would choose TU Darmstadt again.
Looking for a challenge
I personally chose TU Darmstadt and thereby Darmstadt because of its good reputation and I was excited to be challenged in a new way. I started becoming more and more interested in science and technology throughout my senior year of high school, so my choice was actually pretty spontaneous.
Darmstadt has many facets. I started liking it even more with time going by.
You can go party, have cozy nights at parks, go get coffee in some sweet coffee bars but nevertheless it is still close to nature, so you can escape from city life.

Environmental Engineering M.Sc.
Hey, I'm Juan. I'm studying environmental engineering at TU Darmstadt because the university has a very good reputation. I'm sure it will open up a lot of opportunities for me worldwide.
An important decision
Prestige and career opportunities
: “Since middle school, I wanted to study engineering because of my fascination with robots and autonomous systems. The decision between mechanical and electrical engineering (and where to study) was not easy for me at the beginning, but in the end the answer was very clear for me: mechatronics in Germany, and at TU Darmstadt.” Diego
I chose TU Darmstadt not only because of the prestige in academia and research (TU Darmstadt is a member of TU9), but also because of the excellent reputation TU Darmstadt graduates have in the working world.
Materials Science M.Sc.
I chose TU Darmstadt because it ranks very well and my degree programme is offered in English.
Moiz is studying the English-language Master's programme in Materials Science on Lichtwiese campus. This means he is well equipped for a future career in the national and international automotive, aerospace, chemical, semiconductor, healthcare and energy industries!

Data and Discourse Studies M.A.
I chose TU Darmstadt because there is no other university in the world where I could study my current field: Data and Discourse Studies.
Digital Philology B.A.
Hey, I'm Moritz and I'm currently doing my bachelor's degree in digital philology. I chose TU Darmstadt because it's one of the few universities that offer degree programmes in digital humanities.
In fact, as the name suggests, TU Darmstadt is a technical university. A large part of the courses offered are therefore engineering courses. But there are also humanities and social sciences, and of course natural sciences such as biology, physics and chemistry. And what could be more natural than for these different disciplines to work together in an interdisciplinary way? agrees: Masha
Data and Discourse Studies M.A.
Hey, I'm Masha, I chose TU Darmstadt because of its interdisciplinary approach to studying. Here you can also have a strong technical basis with humanities. I also knew about the diverse opportunities TU has to offer through a friend who studied here.
Comfortable in Darmstadt
Catalina's degree programme is also interdisciplinary:
Biomolecular Engineering B.Sc.
I always wanted to study at one of the leading universities in Germany. Surrounded by some of the best professors and students, you can improve your skills faster, gain knowledge and experience from some of the best in the field. I also liked my Biomolecular Engineering course, and there are an incredible amount of development opportunities available here.
feels comfortable in Darmstadt. “The location also played a role. The city is not that big, but it's cosy, and there are also many students from whom you can always learn something and with whom you just spend your time well,” says Catalina.

Great for career changers
TU Darmstadt also offers bilingual programmes, such as the Master of Arts Linguistic and Literary Computing:
Linguistic and Literary Computing M.A.
I'm doing my Master's in Computational Linguistics at TU Darmstadt because my programme is open to so-called career changers like me and because it's a perfect balance between computer science and philology.
