Thus in the programmes in civil engineering and environmental engineering a complex planning assignment is given to the students in the first semester. Hard skills such as planning and designing, but especially soft skills, such as organising, teamwork and presentation skills become a hands-on experience. The course of studies at the Technische Universität Darmstadt focuses also on practical application.

The Technische Universität Darmstadt is the only German university that has legally committed itself to guaranteeing the best possible studying conditions until the completion of a degree (§1 TUD-Gesetz).

Studying Internationally

More than 4,450 foreign students from almost 130 countries study at the Technische Universität Darmstadt. This is almost one fifth of all students and far more than the average of German universities in general. Foreign students are comprehensively supported at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.

Students at the Technische Universität Darmstadt have the possibility to study at about 100 renowned partner universities in 45 countries and thereby broaden their horizons.

Cutting-Edge Learning

The Technische Universiät Darmstadt is presently being developed into the first “Dual Mode-University” in Germany. Within a few years, learning with help of information technology inside and outside of the lecture hall will be a matter of course in addition to the traditional teaching in every study programme.

A lot of room for commitment and perhaps the key asset for beginning a career: for instance with a double degree with a partner university, additional professional qualification such as participation in the student job fair “konaktiva” or in the design and development of energy-efficient solar houses.

The Science City Darmstadt is located in the Rhine-Main metropolitan area – the perfect place to begin your studies and career.

The central welcome ceremony for first year students held by the university executive committee on the first day of classes is an opportunity for initial contact among new students, members of the executive committee, the lord mayor of the city and student groups.
