What our researchers say
If you have just arrived in Dresden and don’t know too much about the city, people or TU Dresden, I can assure you that the best place to start is TU Dresden Welcome Center. It will simply become a great part of your happy moments during the education in Germany. I dedicate this verse from Persian poet Hafiz to the Dresden:
May your goodness always increase
And your smiling face never cease.
Mitra from Iran
I love Dresden! I think it is the perfect size to support a vibrant and dynamic community. There is an interesting mix of old and young (buildings, people, ideas) that keeps you on your toes. I don’t know exactly what the future holds for me, but I wish I could stay in Dresden forever.
Matt from U.S.A.Post-doc at Leibniz Institute - IFW
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

Even if you’ve just come to Germany, you’ve probably already realized we’re a country that loves coffee. The stereotype says, that all Germans love to drink beer – and while that’s partly true – we love coffee even more. There won’t be a day when you don’t see someone taking a sip from a takeaway cup of coffee in the streets and no lunch break is complete without a coffee afterwards. The tradition of drinking coffee in Germany begins in the 17th century. The first coffee houses opened in Bremen and Hamburg – the big seaports where the coffee arrived. […]
