TU Darmstadt

TU Darmstadt or the Technical University of Darmstadt is a public research university located in Darmstadt, Germany. It was founded in 1877 and is the world’s pioneering university to introduce a degree course in electrical engineering. It is Germany’s first declared autonomous university and is known for its outstanding scientific disciplines and excellent, relevant research.

TU Darmstadt Key Statistics

The university has 13 academic departments spread across its two campuses—Lichtwiese and Inner City. Some of these departments include the Department of Law and Economics, the Department of Human Sciences, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, and the Department of Mathematics.

TU Darmstadt offers 112 degree programs for undergraduates and postgraduates. It also offers teacher training courses. Some of its top-ranked courses include mathematics, engineering, and natural sciences.

The university has a population of around 25,889 students, and it employs 2,593 academic staff and 1,909 administrative staff.

Other TU Darmstadt key statistics include the operation of the largest research institute for cybersecurity in Europe, ATHENE. It also founded the IT-Cluster Rhine-Main-Neckar, which is considered the ‘Silicon Valley of Germany.’

The university is affiliated with several organizations, including the German Universities Excellence Initiative, TU9 German Universities of Technology, and the Consortium Linking Universities of Science and Technology for Education and Research.

TU Darmstadt Research

The university has been recognized as one of the top German research institutions. It also houses the first research laboratory that the European Space Agency has established at a German University. Moreover, it has received the highest number of competitive grants from the German Research Foundation, particularly in the field of computer science.

TU Darmstadt’s top three research fields are computer science, materials science, and physics. Its researchers have published in notable publications like the Physical Review Letters, Computation and Language, and the International Journal of Computer Vision. They have also been invited to attend and present research papers at top conferences, such as Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing, and the International Conference on Computer Vision.

The most cited article produced by TU Darmstadt research is Stukowski’s (2010) “Visualization and analysis of atomistic simulation data with OVITO—the Open Visualization Tool.” It received 6,179 citations and was published in Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering. The university’s second most cited research output is Aamodt et al.’s (2008) “The ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC.” A total of 4,599 books, articles, and other publications cited this exquisite work, and it was featured in the Journal of Instrumentation. The third most cited article is Nelles’ (2001) “Nonlinear Dynamic System Identification.” This remarkable book received 3,880 citations to date.

TU Darmstadt is also home to several research centers, including the Centre for Cognitive Science, the Centre for Computational Engineering, and the Centre for Synthetic Biology.

Alumni of TU Darmstadt include three Wolf Prize in Physics laureates, four Nobel laureates, politicians, and top industrial managers in the German economy. The Nobel laureate Albert Einstein also recommended this university.
