The TU9 Alliance is making a strong case for STEM - with national and international projects, for different target groups and with renowned partners from science, business and politics.
STEM Study Exploration Week for Students from German Schools Abroad
Every year, the TU9-ING-Woche offers an exclusive insight into engineering and natural science study programs along a socially relevant topic of the future. Laboratory visits, lectures and internships, insights into STEM professions, exchanges with students and, of course, a cultural program have made the STEM Study Exploration Week for students from German schools abroad a success since 2011. It now takes place annually at two TU9 Universities in parallel, and since 2020 the TU9-ING-Woche has also been available digitally.
Think. Create. Innovate.
Think. Create. Innovate. Under this motto, the TU9-DAAD Innovation Week supports international early career researchers on their way from idea to start-up. Introduced by TU9 and DAAD in 2019, the program comprises pitch trainings, one-on-one counselling and advice, networking events and information on funding opportunities. Participants from all over the world will get an exclusive insight into the start-up centers and business incubators of the TU9 Universities and the start-up scene in Germany.
Combined Study and Practice Stays for Engineers from Developing Countries (KOSPIE)
Introduced in 2007, the DAAD KOSPIE program enables Master’s students from selected Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) to travel to Germany for a seven-month research stay at a TU9 University. DAAD awards the students a scholarship allowing them to conduct their research project for their Master’s degree in engineering, mathematics or a natural science discipline.
TU9 Sneak Peek
Online Study Information Day
In 2020, the TU9 Alliance invited students to a virtual study information day for the first time: On August 26, TU9 Universities gave a live insight into STEM studies at a Technical University - with valuable tips and advice on studying and applying. Prospective students from all over the world who are interested in studying at a TU9 University and who are about to graduate from high school or already graduated were invited to participate. The study information on the platform is still available online.

Joint Korean-German Conference
ADeKo Science Conference in Cooperation with TU9
The Joint Korean-German Conference on relevant future-focused topics was launched in 2009 by the Alumni Network Germany Korea (ADeKo) and has been held alternately in Korea and Germany since 2016 - the conference in Germany is always hosted by a TU9 University. ADeKo, with around 20,000 members the world's largest national network of Korean Germany alumni, is the organizer of the science conference. On average, 5,000 Koreans study at German universities each year, and 800 begin their studies in Germany every year.
