STUDIES www.tu-ilmenau.de/en/welcome-center As the only technical university of the state of Thuringia, the TU Ilmenau enjoys an excellent reputation both in Germany and abroad. The training of engineers is built on a long tradition. Already in 1894, electrical engineering students were trained at the Thüringisches Technikum. Today, the profile of our modern university includes engineering, natural sciences, business studies and media. The TU Ilmenau offers future-oriented Bachelor and Master programs in engineering sciences, mathematics and natural sciences as well as business and social studies to its 7000 students. Thanks to excellent teaching, the university can guarantee that they will be able to meet highest quality standards as future graduates. Throughout their study, the students are ideally supported: by fellow students from higher semesters (tutors) during the first two semesters, and by university teachers (mentors) from the third semester on. They carry out industrial internships and are integrated into the scientists’ research work on the basis of independent projects at an early stage. The teaching process at the TU Ilmenau is characterized by a strong interdisciplinary orientation. To meet the challenges of an increasing differentiation and globalization of economy and society, all majors are connected with each other by interdisciplinary contents. In addition, also non-technical subjects are offered to the students in the framework of Studium generale (general studies), Europastudium (European studies) and Gründer-Studium (business start-up course). This will enable the students to prove themselves in various fields of activity in their later professional lives. The philosophy of putting great emphasis on interdisciplinarity pays off. Thus, the quality of study at the TU Ilmenau is reflected by the outstanding results of independent ranking procedures carried out at regular intervals. Due to the close cooperation between the university and large and medium-sized companies in Germany and abroad just as the high demand from industry open up excellent job chances for the graduates on both the German and international labour market. 8
