Research at Faculty VII addresses essential societal challenges in central transformation fields such as sustainability, digitalisation and entrepreneurship & innovation and develops scientifically based solutions for these challenges. For this purpose, competences and methods of economics, engineering and management are combined in scientific excellence. Our research is equally fundamental and application-oriented with a strong practical focus in different fields of application, such as energy & resources, health or mobility. A comprehensive spectrum of research methods is used to generate research findings in these fields, ranging from behavioural experiments to system analysis and design to economic policy evaluation. The latest research findings are integrated into our degree programmes through research-oriented teaching methods in order to train our students to become responsible decision-makers in the future economy and society. Another focus is on the promotion of young scholars, who are trained in doctoral programmes with different foci in contents and methods.
With its inter- and transdisciplinary orientation, the faculty ensures its connection to the fields of expertise of the TU Berlin, to the other faculties and institutions such as the Einstein Center Digital Future and the Climate Change Center, as well as to the Berlin University Alliance. With the scientific leadership of the Centre for Entrepreneurship, the Siemens Center of Knowledge Interchange and the Centre for Intellectual Property, the faculty contributes to the transfer and start-up environment at TU Berlin. There is also close scientific cooperation with the German Institute for Economic Research DIW Berlin.
