Technische Universität Clausthal
University description (as per official university website)
The approach adopted in recent years and will continue valid development model of the Technical University is
the long and successful period of the existence of this university acquired teaching and research expertise in mathematical, scientific and technical disciplines to strengthen and develop the well as from the fields of economic and environmental science to expand by priorities. On this basic level, the tasks of the Technical University of Clausthal with economic-ecological system competence in international high perceived.
This is the particular emphasis Clausthal University of Technology particularly influenced by the historical development resulting from technical fields of application in teaching and research, with headings of "raw materials and materials science" can be characterized by the. The deepening and expansion of this core is the most modern methods and procedures in the fields of information technology, product and process development, physical and chemical technologies, materials, energy and environment met through.
The specific application fields arising from the close integration mathematics and science and technological fields, which are linked organizationally and professionally:
future-oriented materials in the manufacture and application
physical and chemical technologies for new processes and products
Energy, Geotechnical and Environmental
Information Technology and Management in the industrial process
This unique combination of existing competencies determined the specific profile of the Technical University of Clausthal.
This claim is a constant innovation and change in technical and organizational structures of dynamic linked, one for the Technical University of Clausthal typical and non-bureaucratic approach and in close interaction between teachers and learners will be realized in the. Is a critical performance factor of this university.
Rich ore deposits owed to the upper resin for centuries, its importance as a center of mining and metallurgy. In 1763 Henning Calvör encouraged to set up a school for the brightest and most capable minds of those who want to be mountain and carpenters. first formed in 1775 obtained the educational institution Harzer rapidly international recognition. Sun was the mid-19th Century half of its students from North and South America, Southeast Asia and Australia.
Lost in the 1960s, when coal and steel their dominant role in German industry, the Mining Academy of Clausthal change. The introduction of new Vollstudiengänge of chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanical engineering to process initiated changes that led in 1968 to rename the college in Technical University of Clausthal. This bridge between tradition and innovation, followed by other new programs as well as economics training. The last phase of the restructuring has brought the TU Clausthal back closer to their roots. The transition from seven departments and two faculties at the three faculties and three research centers has been completed. The three centers
Energy Research Center of Lower Saxony
Claus Thaler Center for Materials Technology (CZM)
Simulationswissenschaftliches Centre (SEZ)
order to organize the research, the three faculties of the lesson:
Faculty of Natural and Materials Sciences
Department of Energy and Economics
Faculty of Mathematics and computer science and engineering.
In research, the TU Clausthal is situated across disciplines and networks with other universities. The most important bond is since 1 Lower Saxony in January 2009, the Institute of Technology. In the NTH universities from Braunschweig, Clausthal and Hannover have combined their technical and scientific skills to compete in this field with Germany's leading universities. With their colleagues from the University of Hannover Harz scientists have been working for years in the field of materials science in the Collaborative Research 675 ("Creating Strong structures") together. A European Research Training Group in the field of plastics also connects the universities of Göttingen, Amsterdam and Eindhoven with Clausthal.
With roughly 90 professors, over 400 academic staff and about 3,200 students has the TU Clausthal a clear structure. The competence of the university is regularly confirmed in top positions in rankings. With a share of just over one third of foreign students and doctoral students is one of the TU Clausthal of the most cosmopolitan universities in the country.
The personal atmosphere to study, the large number of university partnerships, the opportunity to be involved in the research-TU as a student in academic work, this makes the attractiveness of the university for the students. Joint projects between industry and university show the importance enjoyed by the university in the economic sector. Many Clausthal graduates in management positions of companies also make clear: the TU Clausthal rooted regional and global estimates.
