Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den

Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den (TUD), as a Uni­ver­sity of Excel­lence, is one of the lea­ding and most dyna­mic rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in the coun­try. Foun­ded in 1828, today it is a glo­bally ori­en­ted, regio­nally ancho­red top uni­ver­sity as it focu­ses on the grand chal­len­ges of the 21st cen­tury. lt deve­lops inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the world's most pres­sing issues. In rese­arch and aca­de­mic pro­grams, the uni­ver­sity unites the natu­ral and engi­nee­ring sci­en­ces with the huma­nities, social sci­en­ces and medi­cine. This wide range of disci­pli­nes is a spe­cial fea­ture, faci­li­ta­ting inter­di­sci­pli­na­rity and trans­fer of sci­ence to society. As a modern employer, it offers attrac­tive working con­di­ti­ons to all employees in tea­ching, rese­arch, tech­no­logy and admi­nis­tra­tion. The goal is to pro­mote and deve­lop their indi­vi­dual abi­li­ties while empowering ever­yone to reach their full poten­tial. TUD embo­dies a uni­ver­sity cul­ture that is cha­rac­te­ri­zed by cos­mo­po­li­ta­nism, mutual appre­cia­tion, thri­ving inno­va­tion and active par­ti­ci­pa­tion.

For TUD diver­sity is an essen­tial fea­ture and a qua­lity cri­ter­ion of an excel­lent uni­ver­sity. Accord­in­gly, we wel­come all app­li­cants who would like to com­mit them­sel­ves, their achie­ve­ments and pro­duc­tivity to the suc­cess of the whole insti­tu­tion.
