The TU Bergakademie Freiberg, as a resource university, focuses its research and teaching on how to deal responsibly with the finite resources of this earth. To this end, our six faculties develop efficient and alternative technologies for raw material extraction, energy technologies, materials and recycling processes and contribute significantly to solving economic and ecological challenges.

With the engineering, natural, geo, material and economic sciences, the university combines all areas of modern raw materials research in the basic area and application-oriented research. 4,000 students receive a scientifically sound and practice-oriented education in 72 courses of study. The close cooperation with companies gives students the advantage of being able to complete internships and assignments up to and including industrial doctorates.
