President Hans Jürgen Prömel welcomes everyone at Technische Universität Darmstadt

To meet the challenges of sustainable development for our society and economy, we must drive, network and rethink our notions and use of technology. At Technische Universität Darmstadt, we focus on technology-related issues; we experiment with new approaches and open up new opportunities.

Our scientists conduct seminal basic research and creatively translate their insights into technological solutions. The technology they create fits smartly into complex operating environments. Our students learn to synthesize excellent research and practical applicability from the very beginning.

I believe that it is one of science’s global tasks for the future to lay the groundwork for sustainable, viable prosperity. TU Darmstadt is one of Germany’s leading universities of technology, and known around the globe for its pioneering achievements. It embraces the challenges of the future with excellent research in selected fields and first-rate education.
