When Students Take Over Teaching

Project laboratories and tu projects deal with topics not covered in the curriculum. One highlight: Sustainability is not just the teaching content, it is the very essence of the concept. In addition, the idea for the new teaching project is developed by the students themselves and presented in an application.

First Electricity, Now Heat Transition

The backlog of renovation work at universities in Berlin is something we are all familiar with. However, the funding required for energy renovation is particularly restricted. A new software tool developed by scientists at Technische Universität Berlin calculates exactly which measures at which buildings have the greatest energy-saving potential for the entire Charlottenburg campus - at the least possible cost.

Number of the Month

Palm trees, conifers, deciduous trees: There are a wide variety of tree species on the Technische Universität Berlin campus. In fact: There are a total of 1,575 trees across all of the University’s locations.
