“In China, German university degrees enjoy an excellent reputation. There are many talented young people interested in studying engineering and natural sciences at a TU9 university”, says Professor Horst Hippler, TU9 President and President of Universität Karlsruhe (TH). “It goes without saying that we will be there to give individual advice on degree programmes and doctorates.“
TU9 is the association of the nine leading Institutes of Technology in Germany. Its members are: RWTH Aachen, TU Berlin, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, TU Dresden, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Universität Karlsruhe (TH), TU München, Universität Stuttgart.
Some 204,000 students, or ten percent of all German students, are registered at TU9 universities.
In Germany 56 percent of all engineers with university degrees come from TU9 universities. 57 percents of all doctorates in engineering are awarded at TU9 universities.
