About

Education

With interdisciplinary research, innovative teaching, knowledge and technology transfer and further education, BTU is looking for solution approaches that solve international as well as national and regional problems. These include challenges in the areas of energy, healthcare, environment, IT-based networks and communication and also cultural and social issues.

Research

Situated in the heart of the Lausitz region, BTU combines outstanding international research with future-oriented teaching. It makes an important contribution to society, our culture and the economy through knowledge and technology transfer and with further education. As a technical university, BTU offers a teaching concept found nowhere else in Germany: our courses of study lead to either a university or a university of applied science degree, or to a so-called dual education degree, which is obtained through a combination of academic schooling and vocational training.
