University of Ilmenau
The Technical University (TU) Ilmenau, located in the 25,000-inhabitant city of Ilmenau on the northern slope of the Thuringian Forest, as a small university offers its students and employees advantageous conditions for study and work that their big sisters cannot necessarily provide. Short distances, small seminars and lectures, the possibility of personal contact between students and university professors and effective networking of scientists are just a few of them. Numerous student, cultural and sporting clubs and initiatives in and outside the university invite you to feel good. Overall, we see ourselves as a cosmopolitan campus family.
Renowned scientists teach and research at the TU Ilmenau. Her achievements are groundbreaking and in many areas today's life can no longer be imagined without. So there are among other things the developments of the MP3 format, a powder that protects against electromagnetic radiation, the most precise balance in the world - the super comparator, the worldwide unique large scientific device for researching the fine structure of turbulence - the so-called "Ilmenauer Fass", a Ultra-broadband technology, which can be used, among other things, to find buried people or to search for mines, or an automatic shopping assistant for hardware stores.
We are proud to look back on numerous close partnerships with scientific institutions and commercial enterprises, both nationally and internationally. And last but not least, it is the close cooperation with the city of Ilmenau and the Ilmkreis with its other regions that shape the framework for academic life at the Technical University to what defines the Technical University of Ilmenau.
