Founded in 1911, the university is considered a Chinese elite university in the field of technology. In the THE ranking, it is ranked 47 worldwide, after Caltech, Oxford and MIT, but in the same weight group as the University of Tokyo, the University of Hong Kong or the Humboldt University Berlin. The double degree program between TU Berlin and Tsinghua University, which was only signed in 2014, immediately aroused great interest. The DAAD supports study visits within the framework of the double degree program with monthly (!) Scholarships as well as a subsidy for health insurance and a travel allowance.
Since the beginning of 2014, there is an agreement between the TU Berlin and Tsinghua University Beijing on a double degree Master's program in Mechanical Engineering / Physical Engineering. The double degree program between TU Berlin and Tsinghua University, which was only signed in 2014, immediately raised great interest. In the near future, it is planned to extend the stays under this double degree program to Shenzhen, where Tsinghua has an extension. Shenzhen is a major city in Guandong Province - the economic engine of China. Here, 30% of Chinese exports are produced, including high-tech companies such as Lenovo. In 2013, Lenovo had already left the former market leaders Hewlett-Packard, Dell and Apple behind and sold more PCs than any other corporation worldwide. The same applies to countless other companies in the metropolitan area, which also includes Hong Kong, Macao and Guanzhou.
Part of the master courses will be held in Berlin, the other part in Beijing. After completing the studies, the student will receive two degrees, one from the TUB and one from the THU. The languages required are German, English and Chinese. Requirements for the participation are:
