We stand up for an open-minded Thuringia

A modern, sustainable university needs an international campus with a cosmopolitan environment in which people are accepted in their diversity and fundamental rights and academic freedom are not called into question. Together with other organizations, companies and individuals in the Free State of Thuringia, we want to set an example for a cosmopolitan and diverse Thuringia and peaceful and respectful interaction with one another out of concern for our democracy.

Before the studyTU Ilmenau / Michael Reichel (ari)


There are many reasons to study at the Technische Universität Ilmenau: the practical training at the highest level - top rankings - excellent supervision - state-of-the-art equipment - best career prospects - and exciting future topics such as autonomous mobility, bio-inspired technology, networked communication or sustainable economic models, which characterize the traditionally strongly engineering-oriented range of study programs.


Our scientists develop the most precise scales in the world - innovative electronic components inspired by human nerve cells - designer molecules that fight cancer... Researchers in around 100 groups work across disciplines to find solutions to the major challenges facing society: growing mobility, sustainable use of resources, demographic change. To this end, we bundle our expertise in three profile lines and actively promote the transfer of knowledge and technology to society.
