Welcome to Strategic Controlling

Our areas of responsibility

Research planning

Strategic Research Planning liaises between researchers at the University’s faculties and the Executive Board. As the internal and external point of contact for questions relating to different aspects of research, we help network TU Berlin’s researchers.

Teaching Development

The Strategic Teaching Development team is the central point of contact for all questions regarding external funding programs for teaching, such as the Berlin Quality and Innovation Offensive (QIO). The team also advises on funding and special programs for teaching and designs and supports networking and exchange formats, such as the retreat on study and teaching and annual Day of Teaching. The team also played a leading role in the development of TU Berlin’s mission statement for teaching and can be contacted with questions about implementing and further developing the mission statement.


Structural Planning

Structural Planning develops strategies and instruments which allow Technische Universität Berlin to effectively respond to current demands and successfully prepare for future development.


Operative and Strategic Reporting focuses on supervising, designing, and further developing TU Berlin’s SAP reporting system.

The team is responsible for the creation and expansion of a comprehensive reporting system (SAP Business Intelligence (BI/BO)). The SAP module allows a wide variety of reports for internal and external persons to be prepared, providing a foundation for the targeted, reliable, and central provision of information and thus ensuring the operative and strategic direction of the University and it’s units.

Quality Management

Quality is not achieved by chance but rather through the planned, systematic, and continuous fulfillment of internal and external requirements for teaching, the organization of studies, degree programs, and much more. SC3 is responsible for assuring quality throughout the University and supports members of TU Berlin with conducting evaluations, analyses on quality assurance in studies and teaching, as well as optimizing quality-relevant processes.

Collaboration between Science & Culture

TU Berlin engages in a number of activities combining science and art/culture. These activities require strategic organization and further development. We are responsible for establishing, expanding, and coordinating collaboration between science and art/culture across TU Berlin as well as with other universities. Our aim is to identify future fields and formats of interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge transfer and leverage new potential in the Excellence Strategy.
