"Excellence in Engineering and the Sciences Made in Germany!"

The TU9 universities are top technical universities in Germany

TU9 is the alliance of leading Institutes of Technology in Germany: Its member-universities are RWTH Aachen University, TU Berlin, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, TU Dresden, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), TU München, Universität Stuttgart.

The TU9 universities offer a variety of excellent study options in engineering and the natural sciences. These comprise engineering subjects such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, and industrial engineering, as well as a wide range of subjects in the natural sciences, such as physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics.

Moreover, the TU9 universities offer more than 130 English Master’s degree programs in engineering and the natural sciences.

The TU9 universities are international

We offer a wide range of international exchange, double degree and joint programs in cooperation with renowned international partner institutions.  15 percent of our students come from abroad – this is well above the German average. In addition to that, the Humboldt Foundation’s ranking demonstrates how attractive the TU9 universities are to international scientist.

The TU9 universities are excellent in research and teaching

The TU9 universities stand out in research: According to the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, the TU9 members attract a fourth of all third-party funding raised in Germany every year. They are also to be found within the top groups of the ranking of the German Research Foundation.

Furthermore, the TU9 universities have been very successful in the German government’s Excellence Initiative.  RWTH Aachen University (2012, 2007), TU Dresden (2012), Universität Karlsruhe (TH) (now Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, 2006) and TU München (2012, 2007) were awarded the status of “University of Excellence”.

TU9 universities lead the way in teaching: In Germany 51 percent of all engineers with a university degree come from TU9 universities. Ten percent of all students at German universities are registered at TU9 universities and 50 percent of all doctorates in engineering are awarded at TU9 universities.
