The Darmstadt University of Technology (Technische Universität Darmstadt or TU Darmstadt) is a research university based in the city of Darmstadt in Germany. TU Darmstadt is known in Germany as a pioneer in computer science and engineering, operating Europe's largest research institute for cybersecurity.
TU Darmstadt currently offers over a hundred degree programs, with most of its academic departments focused on engineering, mathematics, and natural sciences. Students can also pursue interdisciplinary degree courses in various fields of study, including mechanics and computational engineering. In addition to these programs, the university offers several specialized teaching degrees for students planning to teach at grammar and vocational schools. International students can also choose from the university's English-taught master's degrees, short-term programs, and double-degree programs.
As a university of technology, TU Darmstadt is known for the strength of its programs in computer science and engineering. It was the first school in Germany to establish a faculty in electrical engineering and the first university in the world to introduce the course of study. TU Darmstadt was also the first German university to offer degrees in computer science and business informatics.
TU Darmstadt traces its beginnings to the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt, established in 1877 as an engineering-oriented institution of higher education in the Grand Duchy of Hessen. Though enrollment remained low until 1882, the university and the local government set up the first chair of electrical engineering in the world, later establishing its Faculty of Electrical Engineering. This program led to a continuous expansion of the university's student body. In 1924, the university extended its curriculum to include non-technical subjects, such as natural science and political science. The university assumed its current name in 1997 to increase public awareness of the university's status in Germany and abroad. In 2005, TU Darmstadt also became the first German public university to achieve administrative autonomy.
The university has a long history of being a pioneer in higher education in Germany and worldwide. Aside from offering the world's first course of study in electrical engineering, the university set up Germany's first chairs for aviation, aircraft technology, scientific policy, management control systems, and renewable energies. The university is also associated with numerous Nobel Prize laureates and Wolf Prize winners as well as notable mathematicians such as Ernst Schröder, Georg Cantor, and Lothar Collatz.
TU Darmstadt continues to be heavily involved in the fields of computer science through research projects focused on areas such as cybersecurity, internet and digitization, and future energy systems. The university is also home to several collaborative research units and graduate schools funded by the German Research Foundation.
