Technical University of Darmstadt

TU Darmstadt is one of Germany’s leading technical universities and a synonym for excellent, relevant research. We are crucially shaping global transformations – from the energy transition via Industry 4.0 to artificial intelligence – with outstanding insights and forward-looking study opportunities.

TU Darmstadt pools its cutting-edge research in three fields: Energy and Environment, Information and Intelligence, Matter and Materials. Our problem-based interdisciplinarity as well as our productive interaction with society, business and politics generate progress towards sustainable development worldwide.

Since we were founded in 1877, we have been one of Germany’s most international universities; as a European technical university, we are developing a trans-European campus in the network, Unite! With our partners in the alliance of Rhine-Main universities – Goethe University Frankfurt and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz – we further the development of the metropolitan region Frankfurt-Rhein-Main as a globally attractive science location.

TU Darmstadt has been connected with Brazil for many years through University partnerships, exchange students, and collaborative research, for example, in such areas as mechanical engineering, biology, and material science, often fomented by TU Darmstadt’s many alumni.  Dual diploma programs, in conjunction with the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo, play an important role in this respect.
