Ever since the Technische Universität Darmstadt was founded in 1877, it has been characterised by a special pioneering spirit. It is part of our self-image to continue this tradition of innovation continuously. We use our outstanding achievements in research and teaching to find answers to the most pressing questions of tomorrow's economy and society.

To this purpose, we train people with personality who, in addition to their specialist knowledge, will responsibly shape our future. We support our scientists and founders so that research results become marketable products and sustainable companies for the benefit of our society. We cannot meet this challenge with state funding alone.  

As alumni, graduates and scientists at Technical University of Darmstadt make a significant contribution to the transfer of knowledge and technology to society and the economy.

The TU Darmstadt makes a considerable contribution to the innovation and international competitiveness of Darmstadt, the region and far beyond.
