Welcome message from Prof. Dr. Geraldine Rauch

Berlin, April 2022

Welcome to Technische Universität Berlin!

Dear Beginning Students, Dear Newly Enrolled Students,

Welcome to Technische Universität Berlin! We are delighted that you have decided to study at our university.

For many of you this represents the start of an exciting new chapter in your life. Studying in a degree program, independently organizing your schedule and getting to grips with the organizational structure of the University may be new to you and very different to what you know from school, your traineeship or experience of work.

After more than two years of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are returning to in-person teaching supplemented with digital formats. The University also has a new Executive Board beginning summer semester 2022. Both of these transitions provide a wonderful opportunity to meet again on campus. Research and teaching thrive on creative, transdisciplinary exchange. Above all, this is how we can make a difference together for the future development of society and for all of us. Mindful of our responsibilities, we also consider the possible consequences of how our research findings are used, particularly how this may threaten peaceful coexistence. Through our research and teaching we contribute to preserving and improving living and environmental conditions, always giving consideration to the principles of sustainable development. This is what we aspire to and what we want you to aspire to as well. Be curious and open-minded and seize the opportunity to help shape our university. Together, we are TU Berlin.

To make your start here easier, TU Berlin has put together an overview of useful advising and orientation services, addressing all aspects of student life. We invite you to read and make use of these. Detailed information can be found on our website.

We very much hope you will soon feel a part of TU Berlin. 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
