TU Kaiserslautern: internationally networked and technically focused
For those interested in Technology and Natural Sciences, the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) offers a wide range of excellent courses running into more than 100 subjects. Many of the courses are of interdisciplinary orientation and the students have the option of combining subjects selected from natural sciences, engineering and economic sciences. Almost all Master courses are offered in English. Moreover, the faculties of mechanical engineering and process engineering, including the faculty of economic sciences offer courses which can also be completed with German-French double graduation. The Technische Universität Kaiserslautern has partnership treaties with more than 250 universities around the world.
The focus of teaching is more on practice which will particularly benefit as many as 14,600 students. The research buildings and lecture halls are located on the campus at close proximity. There are also many renowned institutes, such as the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (das Deutsche Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz - DFKI), the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE) and for Technology and Economic Mathematics (ITWM), as well as the Max-Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI), all of which work in close cooperation with the TUK and are just a stone’s throw away from the university.
