What our researchers say
I really feel that this is my home and my best time is the time I get to spend with my German families. When I came here I only had one family in Iraq but now I belong to many German families. Wearing a headscarf has never been a problem, neither my religion nor my skin color. Still people smile at me, still people support me, still the TU Dresden ist offering chances, and most important, still knowledge has no borders of nationality here.

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
Where our researchers come from
For the third time in a row, international scientists from Dresden CONCEPT e.V. research institutes competed in the annual dragon boat race during the Elbhangfestival in Loschwitz. Also this year, our 21 crew members came from more than 14 nations from all around the globe. Our quest started already 2 weeks before with a first training session. There we learned the basics of how to handle this about 10 meter long ‘dragon’, which is more difficult than expected. With tired arms and some muscle pain, we were confident and excited for the real race afterwards. And finally, las Saturday afternoon, […]
