Every year, over €7m in outside subsidies – public funding from the Free State of Saxony, the Federal Government and the European Union, but also funds from industry – are deployed to take technologies farther forward, develop new products and optimize processes or to conduct research into social and societal problem areas and flash points.

This scientific work carried on in the fields of technology, the natural sciences and society means that our University is ideally placed to enrich its teaching with state-of-the-art specialist knowledge. Research-related topics for final Bachelor, Master and Diplom papers and a wide range of internships and work placements get students involved early in this intense research activity, so preparing them for successful careers at the conclusion of their studies.
