Strategy

Our university is not only globally connected in teaching and research, but also experiences internationality in numerous facets on campus. On the one hand, this is expressed in a large number of international projects, more than 220 cooperations with universities and research institutions worldwide, an increasing number of study programs and courses offered in English, and a growing number of international students and employees. The goals of TU Ilmenau with regard to internationalization in all areas of the university, where we stand and where we want to go, are set out in the university's internationalisation strategy.
