Faculty V – Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems


The faculty has over 300 partnerships at national and international level with institutes, industry and research as well as associations and societies. These mainly take the form of teaching and joint research projects, but may also involve the creation of new professorships at our faculty. Our professors and research groups are actively involved in TU Berlin’s strategic partnerships as well as within the Berlin University Alliance. We are also significantly involved in developing the engineering faculty at the Turkish-German University in Istanbul.

Partner universities for dual degree master’s programs

The following table provides an overview of our partner universities for dual degree master’s degrees. As a student in a bi-national program you can obtain a degree from TU Berlin and the respective partner university.

Networks for strengthening mobility for students, researchers and staff

ENHANCE is an alliance of seven universities of technology with outstanding reputations for innovation and research and which seeks to lay the foundations for a European University. The project is coordinated by Technische Universität Berlin. The other universities participating in the alliance are Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway), Politecnico di Milano (Italy), RWTH Aachen (Germany), the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) and Warsaw University of Technology (Poland).

Alliance4Tech is a strategic alliance of Centrale Supélec Paris, Politecnico di Milano, TU Berlin and University College London seeking to create a European campus without borders for students and researchers.

Non-university research institutions

Through our joint appointments, we enjoy particularly close links to the non-university research institutions listed below. This type of cooperation provides the opportunity to offer a practical range of courses and the possibility of writing theses with direct relevance to applications as well as extended access to research equipment.

  • Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung
  • German Aerospace Center
  • Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft
  • Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy
  • National Metrology Institute

Endowed professorships

The HEAD-Genuit-Foundation finances a professorship in psychoacoustics at our faculty (Prof. Dr. André Fiebig). Three further professorships are funded with financing from industry as part of the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF).

Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science

Several chairs and research groups at our faculty conduct research together with partners of the Werner-von-Siemens Centre for Industry and Science (WvSC) in areas such as digital twins or additive manufacturing in high-temperature applications.

We are currently establishing a professorship with a focus on additive manufacturing at the faculty with close ties to the WvSC.
