The Technische Universität Berlin ( TU Berlin for short ; before 1946: Technische Hochschule Berlin ) in Berlin-Charlottenburg is the third largest of the four Berlin universities with around 35,600 students in 90 courses and is one of the 20 largest universities in Germany . It stands in the tradition of the Königlich Technische Hochschule zu Berlin, which was founded in 1879, making it one of the oldest technical universities in Germany. The main building designed by Richard Lucae in 1876/1877 on today's Straße des 17. Juni was opened in 1884.
The TU Berlin, located near the Great Tiergarten , is part of the association of nine leading German technical universities ( TU9 ) and is a founding partner of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology . In addition, on July 19, 2019, as part of the Excellence Strategy as an institution of the Berlin University Alliance (together with the Humboldt University of Berlin , the Free University of Berlin and the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin ), it was promoted by the federal and state governments to the second funding line " University of Excellence" recorded.
Beginnings: from the 19th century to 1933
In the independent city of Charlottenburg , the (Royal Prussian) Technical University of Berlin was created on April 1, 1879 through the amalgamation of the Berlin Building Academy and the Royal Trade Academy . On November 2, 1884, the new university buildings erected on what was then Berliner Strasse (today Strasse des 17. Juni) in Charlottenburg were inaugurated.
At the instigation of Adolf Slaby , on the occasion of the centenary of the Berlin Bauakademie on October 19, 1899, the right to award doctorates was granted by Wilhelm II , the King of Prussia , on the basis of a “highest decree” ( cabinet order ) . In addition to the simultaneously introduced degree engineering graduate as degree for students of engineering at the Technical Universities of Prussia she could order a first technical university in Germany the degree Doctor-Engineer ( Dr.-Ing. Give).
The Bergakademie Berlin was affiliated to the Technical University on October 1, 1916 as the "Department for Mining". After the incorporation of the city of Charlottenburg through the "Law on the Formation of a New City of Berlin" ( Greater Berlin Law ), the university was named Technische Hochschule zu Berlin in 1920 . In the autumn of 1927 the geodetic department of the Agricultural University Berlin was transferred to the Technical University.
National Socialism: 1933 to spring 1945
As part of the planning for the " Reich capital Germania ", the expansion of a new so-called Defense Technology Faculty V into one of the largest in the German Reich was planned in the TH Berlin during the Nazi era . However, after the suicide of the designated head of General Karl Becker, this came about only partially, although the land behind today's Telefunken high-rise on Bismarckstraße and under today 's Teufelsberg , a pile of ruins, had already been procured.
Re-establishment: 1945 to 1968
During the Battle of Berlin , the Technical University was closed on April 20, 1945. On June 2, Gustav Hertz and Max Volmer were elected as rector and vice- rector respectively in a provisional 15-member working committee that was formed in May 1945 with Gustav Hertz , Max Volmer , Werner Hahmann , Walter Kucharski and others . Both had contacts with the Soviet occupying power. After the two scientists did not show up a week later , Georg Schnadel was elected as acting rector and Walter Kucharski as acting prorector. On April 9, 1946, the destroyed educational institution , now located in the British sector of divided Berlin , was re-established as the Technical University of Berlin with a humanistic reorientation (mandatory humanistic study component, Studium generale ). The Faculty of Humanities was founded on March 7, 1950.
Realignment: 1969 to 2005
In 1969, the Berlin University Act led to the replacement of the full professorships - by the group university . In 1970 the previous nine faculties were replaced by 21 departments, which - with the exception of the mathematics department - were divided into institutes. The mathematics department organized itself into working groups. On April 1, 2001, the departments were abolished in favor of faculties, some of which have since managed their own budget. This was justified with the intention to organize the TU leaner and more efficiently.
In addition to the venues at the Free University of Berlin , the TU's Auditorium Maximum ( Audimax , framed by chestnut trees on the left in the photo above) was a main venue during the disputes of the student movement : only a few hundred meters from the former Telefunken high-rise is the Deutsche Oper , the place on which on June 2, 1967 the student Benno Ohnesorg was shot.
In the professional ban strike of the students of the Berlin universities, colleges and technical colleges in 1976/77, the students of the TU played a decisive role when they joined the strike initiated by the FU in an unexpectedly large number.
On December 16, 1976, Der Tagesspiegel reported :
“TU President Wittkowsky declared that he supported the main demands of the boycott of the courses in protest against professional bans and worsened study conditions, which has now spread to 15 departments [of 21] at the TU of the students and consider the student protests to be permissible. "
In January 1978, the foyer and Audimax were the focus of a multi-day gathering of nationwide active, “alternative” groups for the “ Meeting in Tunix ” with 15,000 participants. On November 23, 1978, the organization Netzwerk Selbsthilfe , initiated by Tunix , was founded in an Audimax assembly.
In 1980 parts of the Berlin University of Education were integrated into the TU.
The TU Berlin became the second largest technical university in Germany. As a state university, it is dependent on grants. The state grant in 2003 was € 285 million.
With the acquisition of the Telefunken high-rise in 1975 and the construction of the mathematics building in 1983 (Strasse des 17. Juni 136), the new Institute of Physics in 1984 (Hardenbergstrasse 36) and the Production Technology Center in 1986 (Pascalstrasse 8-9), the TUB became largest technical university in the then Federal Republic.
Internationalization from 2006
As part of the excellence initiative of the federal and state governments to promote science and research at German universities, the Technical University was granted a graduate school ( Berlin Mathematical School ) in 2006 and an excellence cluster ( Unifying Concepts in Catalysis ) in 2007 . With around 6,000 foreign students, the TU Berlin is internationally positioned; most of the students come from China, Turkey, Russia, Vietnam and Cameroon. The European Institute for Innovation and Technology selected two knowledge and innovation communities with the participation of the TU Berlin, which will each receive 100 million euros in funding over a period of five years. To compensate for dwindling public funds, the university has recently stepped up its cooperation with companies such as Deutsche Telekom AG , Telekom Innovation Laboratories and Siemens AG .
The main building, designed by Richard Lucae - after his death in 1877 planned by Friedrich Hitzig and Julius Carl Raschdorff - was built from 1878 to 1884 as a monumental building in the neo-renaissance style . When the east-west axis was built in 1939, the driveway and green areas in front of the main building were replaced by an open staircase and paved areas. After severe damage at the end of the Second World War , three of the originally five inner courtyards, the side wings and the rear facade were rebuilt, while the front facade with the central projection was demolished in the early 1950s. In 1965, the new building, visible today from Straße des 17. Juni, based on a draft by Kurt Dübbers, was placed in front of the old building. The windowless auditorium is in front of the ten-story aluminum-clad high-rise .
The Institute for Mining and Metallurgy (1955–59 by Willy Kreuer ) and the buildings of the architecture faculty ( Bernhard Hermkes , Hans Scharoun ) were built on Ernst-Reuter-Platz . After 1960, the campus with numerous other institute buildings expanded north of Straße des 17. Juni to over the Spree (example: institute building for materials science).

The university library of the TU is divided into the central library and the two departmental libraries, departmental library for architecture and art studies and departmental library for physics . The central university library is the joint central library of the TU and UdK Berlin in the VOLKSWAGEN-Haus building on Fasanenstrasse (called Volkswagen library ) on the western edge of the Tiergarten as the easternmost boundary of the Charlottenburg campus . The building project, which cost 55 million euros and was opened in 2004, was sponsored by Volkswagen AG with 5 million euros, which is why Volkswagen also gave its name. The library grounds are located on the hippodrome built by Peter Joseph Lenné in 1846/1847 instead of the pheasantry , on which the new mathematics building of the TU is also being built. Besides the University Library's own libraries exist in different faculties: The two largest independent libraries here are The Library Business & Management Faculty of Economics and Management in the main building and the Mathematical Library of the Institute of Mathematics in Mathematics building.
The architecture museum of the Technical University of Berlin is run as a special department of the university library.
In 1958, the computing institute received the first Zuse Z22 computer from Wolfgang Haack . In 1974 the institute was integrated into the central computer center ( ZRZ ) of the TU. Information and telecommunication services, including the international Eduroam as well as Web 2.0 and social media services, were provided by the successor facility of the ZRZ under the name tubIT until December 31, 2018 . On January 1, 2019, tubIT was dissolved and transferred to the newly established Campus Management Center (ZECM). This restructuring is a consequence of the introduction of SAP.
Central Institution for Scientific Further Education and Cooperation (ZEWK)
The Central Institution for Scientific Further Education and Cooperation (ZEWK) is one of seven central institutions of the Technical University of Berlin.
The four areas of work at ZEWK include, on the one hand, interdisciplinary and supra-university-oriented advisory and cooperation opportunities between science, business, the world of work and society and, on the other hand, a wide range of interdisciplinary, university-didactic advice and training for academic staff and university lecturers at the TU Berlin in all phases of academic research Career. In the implementation of teaching and learning offers, the ZEWK supports scientific staff at the TU Berlin by providing technology and personnel.
In 2006, 2012 and 2018 the accreditation commission of the German Society for Higher Education Didactics successfully accredited the introductory course "Teaching for University's Best" and the curriculum "Promotion of the quality of teaching" of the Central Institution for Scientific Further Education and Cooperation. The aim of this seal of approval is to guarantee that "events and programs meet professional standards, that is, their objectives are legitimized, designed in line with scientific developments and tested in practice."
In 2013, the online teaching team at ZEWK initiated the practice blog: Digital teaching and e-learning at the Technical University of Berlin. The blog offers university lecturers and academic staff an overview of the infrastructure of the TU Berlin and university-wide offers with regard to digital teaching and learning. Interested parties can find digital tools there for use in university teaching and background information on various topics in university didactics . Various formats such as interviews and practical reports as well as audio and video recordings of events offer the university staff of the TU Berlin via this portal the possibility of an interdisciplinary exchange of experiences about digital strategies and fields of application in the respective faculties and institutions.

Research nuclear reactor
Research nuclear reactor SUR BERLIN of the type Siemens teaching reactor . The reactor has been operated by the Institute for Energy Technology since 1963 on Strasse des 17. Juni (first criticality : July 26, 1963) and is to be shut down. The nuclear reactor has been out of service since 2002, and the nuclear fuel (enriched uranium) was removed from the facility in October 2008.
A large part of the subject areas is located on the main campus (also Campus Charlottenburg) on Straße des 17. Juni. There are also other locations in the vicinity, for example the Severingelände (SG) at Salzufer 17-19.
There is also a collection of specialist areas on the Wedding campus in the former AEG factory buildings in Gesundbrunnen and in the Institute for Fermentation Industry and Biotechnology at Seestrasse 13 . There are other locations in Dahlem and on the EUREF site in Schöneberg .
The main campus extends over the districts of Charlottenburg and Tiergarten . It is limited by Marchstrasse, Einstein-Ufer, Fasanenstrasse and Hardenbergstrasse . Individual buildings are outside these limits, but are counted as part of the main campus. The Straße des 17. Juni separates the campus into the larger southern part and the smaller northern part.
The main building with the university administration and the largest lecture halls are located here . There, a total of seven sessions of the 2nd and 3rd German Bundestag took place in the large lecture hall of the Physics Institute during the period of German division in 1955, 1956 and 1958 .
Together with external partners, the Solar Powers association, founded in 2014, is trying to multiply the generation of renewable energies on suitable roof areas of the university.
In 1991 the TU Berlin concluded an inheritance contract with Gustav Severin. The contract stipulates that the university will receive the 19,000 m² site on the Salzufer after the death of the son, but no later than January 1, 2051. A sign at the entrance to the site speaks of a donation.
The first campus abroad was opened in 2012 in El Guna, Egypt . On the occasion of the campus opening, a buddy bear was unveiled as a symbol of the special connection between the two study locations. In El Gouna five master’s courses are offered: Energy Engineering, Urban Development, Water Engineering, IT for Energy and Business Engineering Energy. The entrepreneur and TU alumnus Samih Sawiris not only bore the costs for the setup, but also pays for ongoing academic operations.
Professors Vockel and Gobrecht founded the student loan association Berlin-Charlottenburg in 1950 , which in 1951 became the student loan association. V. has been renamed.
