Technical University of Darmstadt

Technical University of Darmstadt

Even Einstein recommended the Technische Universität Darmstadt, founded in 1877, as a “good polytechnic”. Today, the university offers 113 courses of study in five fields of study and 13 departments and is one of the leading technical universities in Germany, especially in the field of engineering.

Strong networks form an important basis for this lasting success: on the one hand, between the engineering and natural sciences and the humanities and social sciences. But also with external partners such as the Darmstadt Fraunhofer Institutes for Security in Information Technology (SIT) and for Graphic Data Processing (IGD). Through the strategic alliance of the Rhine-Main Universities, scientists and students benefit from joint courses of study and strong research alliances.

TU Darmstadt is also opening up new avenues internationally: in 2019, it was awarded the title of “European University” together with six other European technical universities. The alliance called “UNITE!” will receive five million euros in funding over the next three years. The goal is a trans-European campus.

The TU Darmstadt is a family-friendly university and has been certified and awarded several times for this. The Family Service Center supports students and employees in organizing family responsibilities in their studies and professional career.

Department of Computer Science – solid foundations and diverse specialization

With about 30 fields of study, the professors and research assistants of the department provide both comprehensive basic training and specialization in socially relevant topics such as IT security, artificial intelligence, robotics, visual computing and massively parallel software systems. By combining complex, practice-oriented tasks and interdisciplinary research, the approximately 3,500 students are prepared at an early stage for the demands and challenges of the working world.

Measured by publications in respected scientific media, the TU Darmstadt is one of the leading German universities in Europe in the field of computer science.
