What our researchers say
I have been living in Dresden for over 2 years now and have found that the city has lots to offer. Dresden is just the ideal size for a modern city and offers all the amenities that you could ask for, be it healthcare, education or job opportunities. The scientific landscape is exciting and an open mindset of the people implies that there are opportunities to collaborate with people from the different Max Planck Institutes as well the University campus within the city.

If I try to think about what I would remember ten years from now about Dresden, I can surely say TUD Welcome Center would be in top five. My romantic experience with German culture and German way of life started with people from the Welcome Center, one may think it is an office dedicated to help foreign scientists but then you will miss the true essence of those people who are working here. If you miss your home you can easily find a new home within the Welcome Center comrades as they smile from deep inside while asking you ‘How may I help you?’.

A Message from our Rector
TU Dresden has clearly and unambiguously positioned itself towards open-mindedness and tolerance. We are grateful and proud that we at TU Dresden learn, teach, work and live together with around 5,000 international scientists and students to achieve top performances in research and teaching together. Science is international! TU Dresden thrives on interaction between foreign and German students and scientists, who are all a firm part of our university, regardless of religion and background. It was our aim, and we have succeeded, to make foreign staff and students enthusiastic about TU Dresden. Now I see it as our duty to ensure that they experience Dresden as a charming city and a great place to live. Come and join us, we look forward to seeing you here!- Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Hans Müller-Steinhagen

You never know what to expect when planning an excursion in autumn – but as we Germans would say “There will be good weather once you finish your plate!” Definitely we all ate up our first dinner Friday evening at a very typical Czech restaurant “U veverky” close to our hostel. Loads of meat, Czech dumplings and wonderful čaj (Czech tea ;) were put on our tables and filled our empty bellies. Leftover ribs were allocated on other plates – no weather risk was taken. The sun gave us a warm weekend, a tan and 20 smiling faces until Sunday […]
Thursday, 19 October 2017: Leslie Clio (concert) Leslie Clio, one of the rising stars of the genre “Singer-Songwriter” in Germany is coming to Dresden. Nikolai Potthoff produced her first album Gladys, which was released in 2013 and reached number 11 on the German Albums Chart. Her most successful single “I Couldn’t Care Less” appeared in the soundtracks of several movies and brought her the deserved attention as an artist. The following year, Clio was even nominated for Best National Rock/Pop Female Artist at the Echo Music awards. With the support of Lee MacDougall she wants to present her most recent album Purple, which has […]
Make hay while the sun shines, especially when it is a warm sunny Sunday in the middle of October. To make most of it, a group of 12 lively internationals followed Therése down the rolling paths of her homeland, the ore mountains. Our hike started at Nassau, a small village in the ore mountains. From here we walked down the gently winding roads, characteristics of the ore mountain, enjoying the green fields. Autumn was at its artistic best and the horizon was made colourful by shades of golden, red and brown on the trees. Conversations flowed easy and jokes were soon being […]
