University

Innovation, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, or e-mobility - all our modern developments require resources, energy and materials as well as their sustainable use. This is why Freiberg scientists are engaged in excellent research and teaching on the fundamentals and processes related to natural resources, energy and materials. We combine all fields of engineering, natural sciences, geosciences and economics under one roof. In this way, the university not only ensures versatile research, but also a systemic education of its students.

Researching technologies of the future. Picture: Crispin MockryOur six faculties develop efficient and alternative technologies for a sustainable economy and industry. Our focus is on the exploration and processing of a wide range of raw materials; the extraction, storage and conversion of energy; the development of new materials and recycling processes. With engineering, natural sciences, geosciences, materials science and economics, the university combines the subjects and disciplines necessary for an holistic understanding and covers all areas from basic research to application-oriented research. university profile
