Summer School Exchange: Technical University Darmstadt

Technology is at the heart of all disciplines at TU Darmstadt; the Natural Sciences as well as Social Sciences and Humanities cooperate closely with Engineering. Founded in 1887, Darmstadt has consistently led German universities in the introduction of new scientific disciplines; for example, the university is famous for being the first in the world to establish a faculty of electrical engineering.
