It is important to the TU Ilmenau to impart these future-relevant skills and to promote the education of young people who think and act entrepreneurially. Therefore, the TU Ilmenau is also one of the signatories of the ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS CHARTA, which was developed by university representatives within the framework of the support network "Entrepreneurial Skills" and published in 2022.
In order to implement the goal, various offers were created within the framework of the Studium generale as well as by the start-up service Ilmkubator, which complement the offers of the faculties. These are bundled and identified within the framework of the certificate.
