Technical University Chemnitz

TU Chemnitz

Founded in 1836 with the opening of the School of Commerce, the Technical University, with its educational system and practices, has laid the foundation for the construction of modern machinery and production facilities, and thus for the economic rise of the city. Today, the Technical University is home to more than 11,000 students from 90 countries and is one of the most important employers in the region with around 2,300 employees. In research and teaching, it focuses on the three core competencies “Materials and Intelligent Systems”, “Resource Efficiency and Lightweight Construction in Manufacturing” and “People and Technology”, addressing the key questions of the future. The Technical University of Chemnitz has created a cluster of competencies that is unique in Germany. For example, the work in the cluster “Technology fusion for multifunctional lightweight construction” (MERGE) is funded by the German Federal Government with 34 million euros and is recognized as the only pioneering technology research in the field of “lightweight construction”.

In 2020, the University is ranked between 600th and 800th in the World University Rankings. (See THE)
