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
Where our researchers come from

Due to the limited time slots in Dresden indoor swimming pools, this course can only happen in the beginning of March, so this is a once–in-a-year opportunity for you! The course will be open for both gender and is designed for non-swimmers and by professional and experienced trainers, who usually work with internationals. The lessons will start in the early morning at 6 a.m. due to the limited spots and to ensure that you […]
Do you know researchers who are not able to do their research due to political prosecution or political unsecurity in their home countries? There is a chance to bringt them to the TUD for a two-year fully funded research stay. Last year the TUD applied for a researcher and received the fellowship fortunately. We will be glad to welcome him and his family very soon on campus. Just a few days ago another application round was announced and we ask you to spread this information. Who is eligible for a Philipp Schwartz fellowship? Threatened researchers from any academic field […]
