Since its foundation in 1877, TU Darmstadt has been characterized by a special pioneering spirit. It is part of our self-image to continuously continue this tradition of innovation. Through outstanding achievements in research, teaching and transfer, we open up important scientific fields of the future and continually open up new opportunities for shaping society. This makes TU Darmstadt one of the leading technical universities in Germany with high international visibility and reputation.

The Technical University (TU) of Darmstadt is one of Germany’s leading technical universities. TU Darmstadt incorporates diverse science cultures to create its characteristic profile. The focus is set on engineering and natural sciences, which cooperate closely with outstanding humanities and social sciences. We are enjoying a worldwide reputation for excellent research in our highly-relevant, focused profile areas. We dynamically develop our portfolio of research and teaching, innovation and transfer, in order to continue opening up important opportunities for the future of society. Around 26,000 students are supervised by 300 Professors and 2,600 scientists.

TU Darmstadt connects various scientific cultures to characteristic areas. Emphasis is given to engineering areas and the natural sciences, which work closely with the applied human and social sciences. TU Darmstadt combines it’s excellence in research with the six technical areas that it offers: Cybersecurity (CYSEC)Internet and DigitisationMatter and Radiation Science, Thermo-Fluids & InterfacesFuture Energy Systems, and “from Material to Product Innovation”. Research in the technical areas focuses on current issues, with solid relevance for the economy and society.

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.
