Berlin, July 2022

Welcome to Technische Universität Berlin!

Dear Beginning Students, Dear Newly Enrolled Students,

Welcome to Technische Universität Berlin! We are delighted that you have chosen to study at TU Berlin, a university of the future with a rich tradition in a leading city of science and research.

For many of you this is the start of an exciting new chapter in your life. The impact of the coronavirus over the past few semesters has shown how important it is to integrate you into the life of the university and to have real contact with each other, your instructors and staff members from the very outset of your studies. At the start of winter semester 2022/23 we will once again make it our task to work with you to create a place where we can interact with and support each other, and where you can contribute your ideas and your desire for creative work and new approaches. Research and teaching thrive on creative, transdisciplinary exchange. Above all, this is how we can make a difference together for the further development fo society and for all of us. We want to work with you to create a university built on diversity and which offers you the freedom to develop and fulfill your goals, while also providing you with the support you need. It is important for us that TU Berlin is a safe place for everyone, where you can work together in peace and where measures are taken to counter discrimination of any kind. We want to encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities to improve and uphold what is important for life and the environment around the world by contributing your ideas within research and teaching to help create solutions for both, a sustainable way of life and sustainable development. This is the challenge we set ourselves and one we want you to take up as well. Be curious and open to new ideas and seize the opportunity to help shape our university. TU Berlin is about you and all of us.

To make your start here easier, we have put together a wide range of advising and orientation services, addressing all aspects of student life. We invite you to find out about these services and make use of them. You can find comprehensive and up-to-date information on our website.

We are delighted that you are now part of our university. On behalf of the entire Executive Board, I would like to wish you every success for this new phase in your life and hope that your studies here motivate and inspire you to learn and develop an alert and critical mind!

Prof. Dr. Geraldine Rauch
