Description

The Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) is a public university located in the German city of Dresden, near the country's eastern border with the Czech Republic.

The university’s origins can be traced as far back as 1828, when it was founded as the Royal Saxon Technical School.

Today, TUD is a modern, multidisciplinary university and one of the biggest technical universities in Germany.

With the motto Wissen schafft Brücken – ‘Knowledge builds bridges’ – the university boasts 14 faculties in five different schools. It is home to more than 100 different disciplines, ranging from natural and engineering sciences, to humanities, social sciences and medicine.

The buildings on the university’s main campus, just south of Dresden’s city centre, date from three distinct periods. The architect Martin Dülfer designed the earliest buildings while, following the destruction of Dresden in Allied bombing raids, Hermann Glöckner did much to contribute to the university’s restoration. The modern era buildings on campus, dating from 1990, were built following reunification of the country.

TUD comprises 14 faculties and offers 125 degree programmes across a wide range of disciplines, with a research focus on Biomedicine, Bioengineering, Materials sciences, Information technology, Microelectronics, Energy and the Environment. 

The university is one of eleven institutions in the country to be classified as a ‘University of Excellence’ in the German Universities Excellence Initiative. It is also a member of TU9, an association of the nine leading German Institutions of Technology.

Of the 36,000 students who attend TUD, around 40% are from the Saxony area (of which Dresden is the capital), about 20% are from other former East German federal states, and approximately 13% are from overseas, mainly Europe and Asia. The remainder of students come from former West German federal states.

Dresden itself, largely rebuilt after World War II, is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Situated on the River Elbe and known as the Jewel Box because of its baroque and rococo architecture, many of its historical buildings were restored to their former glory in the post-war years.

High access to masters and big level of foerign students. Great installations and possibility to stay after studies in the investigation field. The campus is great with some main historical buildings and other recently built and modern ones. Possibility to eat for 2€ in mensas and a in-library museum with some of the oldest scripts from aztec periods. Study level is demanding but not overwhelming, professors are attentive and there is always chance to have some fun in the city, since it shares 2 universities.

I genuinely enjoy studying at TU Dresden. Many of my classes are held by well known professors and we regularly have high-level guest talks. The facilities are excellent with spacious libraries and access to many resources. I particularly enjoy the various opportunities for social life and engagement in different student associations and the events constantly organized on campus and in the city. The mensa is always worth visiting! The university is really close to the city center and the main station.
