Welcome to the TU Ilmenau! We are looking forward to seeing you!

The TU Ilmenau has a number of partner universities. If such cooperation exists with your home university, we would be happy to welcome you as an exchange student at TU Ilmenau for one or two semesters!

If you are interested, please first contact the International Office of your home university. There you will receive further information. Only after the nomination by the responsible persons of your home institution, the application at the TU Ilmenau can take place.
