Brief Introduction to TU9 Universities
University of Stuttgart
The University of Stuttgart has a worldwide reputation for excellence in the fields of mobile and information technology, production, process engineering as well as in life sciences. The University of Stuttgart was founded in 1829, at the beginning of the industrial age in Europe, and has celebrated its 175-th anniversary in 2004. The main emphasis of the University of Stuttgart is on engineering and the natural sciences. However, combining these areas with the humanities and the social sciences adds something special to its profile.
The Technische Universität Darmstadt (Technical University of Darmstadt), commonly referred to as TU Darmstadt is a research university in the city of Darmstadt, Germany. It was founded in 1877 and then in 1899 received the right to award doctorates. In 1882 it was the first university in the world to set up a chair in electrical engineering. The University offers a wide range of subjects, not only in the traditional fields of natural and engineering sciences, but also in those of social and human sciences. There are 13 departments and 5 fields of study which all together offer about 100 courses of studies.
RWTH Aachen University
With its 260 institutes in nine faculties, RWTH Aachen is among the leading European scientific and research institutions. 42,298 students in 144 courses of study are registered for the winter semester of 2014/15, including 7,056 international students from more than 120 countries and thus it is the largest technical university in Germany. RWTH Aachen University is a place where the future of our industrialised world is thought out. The University is proving to be a hotspot with increasing international recognition where innovative answers to global challenges are developed.
TU Berlin is a research university located in Berlin, Germany and one of the largest and most prestigious research and education institutions in Germany. The university was founded in 1879.Nowadays, TU Berlin is an internationally famous university in the German capital, at the heart of Europe and with about 31,000 students in 115 degree programmes it is one of the largest institutes of technology in Germany. The main focus in research and teaching at TU Berlin is on engineering and natural sciences. In addition, it offers degree programmes in planning, social sciences, the humanities, and economics and management. The university alumni and professor list include two National Medal of Science laureates and ten Nobel Prize winners.
TU Braunschweig was founded in 1745 as Collegium Carolinum and is a member of TU9, an incorporated society of the most renowned and largest German institutes of technology. It is commonly ranked among the top universities for engineering in Germany. Nowadays, TU Braunschweig provides its students with outstanding conditions for forward-looking research and teaching in 124 institutes and departments. The academic core disciplines of engineering and natural sciences are closely linked to economics, social sciences, the humanities and education.
