Many internationally renowned figures have emerged from Technische Universität Berlin and its predecessor Technische Hochschule Berlin, pioneering the cause of both science and the University itself. Their impact can be felt beyond the university campus and Berlin. Figures such as Konrad Zuse, inventor of the world’s first functional computer, Herta Hammerbacher, the first female architect at the University, and Eugene Paul Wigner, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics, not only shaped research and teaching at their university but also left their mark on the international research landscape through their scientific discoveries and wealth of ideas.
University management and committees have advanced the University’s national and international competitiveness through numerous reforms.
