History, Affiliations and Rankings

In 1828,  Dresden University Of Technology was established in Dresden as the Technische Bildungsanstalt (Technical Institute). Even back then, the institute was able to recruit notable professors, like Johann Andreas Schubert, the builder of the first operational German steam locomotive "Saxonia." The Bildungsanstalt, which had already evolved into a polytechnic institute by that time, advanced to become the Königlich Sächsische Technische Hochschule (Royal Saxon Polytechnic Institute) in 1890. It was elevated to the rank of a university in 1961. The university is fully accredited by the Saxon Ministry of Science and Art. German Universities Excellence Initiative, Partnership of a European Group of Aeronautics and Space UniversitieS (PEGASUS), Top International Managers in Engineering (T.I.M.E.) and Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research (CESAER). Technische Universität Dresden secured the ranking of #=194 in the latest QS World University Rankings. U.S. News and World Report ranked the University at #185 in Best Global Universities (tie), #74 in Best Global Universities in Europe (tie) and #11 in Best Global Universities in Germany (tie). 

Infrastructure, Campuses and Courses

TU Dresden’s main campus is located south of the Dresden city centre and can be easily reached. The buildings on the main campus mainly date back to three different periods of history: the beginning of the campus development starting in 1890, which is characterised by the planning and building design of Martin Dülfer; the post-war years from 1950, when Hermann Glöckner left his architectural imprints on the campus and the modern era, from 1990, with its exposed concrete buildings erected during the post-reunification construction boom.  It has a vast and diverse scientific spectrum that only a few other German universities can match as a modern comprehensive, multi-discipline university with 17 faculties. Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Engineering Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Medicine, and Teacher Training are the university's six departments.
