There are many challenges for future engineers and natural scientists. Global environmental issues, more efficient solar cells, artificial intelligence, technology that ensures clean water availability, smarter drugs, and improving IT systems. With knowledge and skills you can influence the future while creating a career. At our faculty, over 3,000 future technicians, natural scientists, industry designers, pharmaceutists and architects study.
Proximity to research, excellent teaching and a relaxed atmosphere characterize the faculty's education. The world class achievements at our research centers with staff of various nationalities and the connection with industry lead to an interdisciplinary and international approach in all our academic programmes.
We offer 22 Bachelor's programmes, of which one is taught in English, and 13 Master's programmes in English. Our eleven departments offer a possibility to pursue a doctoral degree. Students who do not intend to study a whole programme may easily apply for single courses at all levels.
As the process of obtaining a visa may well jeopardise your chances of arriving in time for the course start, we do not recommend that non-EU/EEA residents make late applications.
