TU Bergakademie Freiberg has been ranked fourth in a Germany-wide comparison of the amount of third-party grants and funding won per professor. This is evident from figures recently published by the German Federal Statistical Office on third-party funding statistics for the year 2015.

Each professor at TU Bergakademie Freiberg raised an average of €574,920 in funding in 2015. At the federal level, TU Bergakademie Freiberg ranks fourth behind RWTH Aachen, the University of Stuttgart and the Technical University of Munich, thus punching well above its weight in Germany. In particular, Freiberg's professors in the natural and engineering sciences were once again awarded large tracts of funding.
