Providing excellent degree programs to equip graduates with the skills and training needed to meet the demands of the professional world is a central concern for TU Berlin.

Effective and trusting collaboration between members across the University as well as joint quality objectives are key to successful quality development.
All procedures and responsibilities are laid out in TU Berlin’s Quality Management Handbook. This provides key information and data, such as degree program operating figures for teaching conferences, assisting faculties with the continuous development of their degree programs.
The deans of studies are responsible for overseeing all academic and teaching activities, particularly their quality assurance, within the faculties. In this role, they are standing members of the Quality Management Working Group and take part in closed meetings on academics and teaching.
Every faculty appoints a coordinator for each of its degree programs. These coordinators are responsible for the organization and further development of their respective degree program. This includes, for instance, conducting the degree program evaluation and teaching conferences on behalf of the faculty.
The advisors for studies and teaching work in the faculty and central institute service centers and are responsible for coordinating as well as providing information about academics and teaching.
