Practical teaching and involvement in research projects

Großforschungsanlage am IEC

The degree programme at TUBAF is characterised by a close connection between theory and practice. Students are involved in research projects at an early stage.

High practical relevance

Teaching is characterised by a strong focus on current research topics. You come into contact with research and practice early on in your studies.

Early involvement in research projects

TUBAF cooperates with numerous major research institutions and companies in Germany and abroad. The courses are research-based and address current topics. During their studies, students can immerse themselves in current research in promising fields as part of student research projects or as student assistants.

Modern infrastructure

In addition to the typical teaching buildings on a campus, the TUBAF campus is home to engineering technology centres, modern chemistry laboratories - two more ultra-modern laboratory wings will be handed over this year - and large-scale technical facilities, such as those for energy process engineering and the modern rolling mill for metal forming. In the new university library, which will be inaugurated in September 2023, students will find modern lecture theatres and the university library with advanced learning spaces, a behaviour lab and a cafeteria.

Entrepreneurship - the best conditions for founders

TUBAF offers the best conditions for starting your own company. The technical foundations are taught during the degree programme. The start-up network SAXEED provides support during the start-up phase.

Studying sustainability

There are degree programmes that offer courses on sustainability in their curriculum, either through a corresponding designation in the name or through a practice-oriented course of study that enables students to later work in shaping the energy and resource transition in this area. Examples include the degree programmes Environmental Systems Science - Geoecology, Geoengineering, Engineering and Applied Computer Science.

Studium international

Internationality and cosmopolitanism

The working and study atmosphere at TU Bergakademie Freiberg is characterised by openness to the world and respectful interaction with one another. The university has a strong international reputation, especially in the raw materials sector. The proportion of international students is around 40 per cent. Students benefit from the global networking of our scientists, who can gain experience abroad as part of exchange programmes, double degree programmes, practical semesters or international degree courses.
