The Technical University of Darmstadt is a synonym for excellent, relevant science. Global transformations – from the energy transition via Industry 4.0 to artificial intelligence – are posing enormous challenges. We are playing a crucial role in helping to shape these far-reaching processes of change with outstanding insights and forward-looking study opportunities.
Since we were founded in 1877, we have been one of Germany’s most international universities; as a European technical university, we are committed to European values and European integration. Our home is the metropolitan region Frankfurt-Rhine-Main. With our partners in the Alliance of Rhine-Main Universities, we continue the development of this globally attractive science location.
Our cutting-edge research is pooled in three fields: Energy and Environment, Information and Intelligence, Matter and Materials. Large-scale, problem-based interdisciplinarity involving the engineering sciences, natural sciences, humanities and social sciences is the hallmark of our research and study. We foster intensive, productive interaction with society, business and politics. Such collaborative polyphony generates effective, long-term progress towards sustainable development worldwide.
TU Darmstadt strengthens its position through strategic cooperation and networking with other universities in Germany and abroad.
TU Darmstadt stands for cosmopolitanism and international orientation in study, teaching and research. It cooperates internationally at all levels – whether in research projects, student exchanges or partnerships.
