The Technical University of Berlin (TUB) has a history that spans over 200 years, but it was only in 1946 that it officially became a technical university. The TUB is known for the famous scientists who have taught and researched there including Ernst Ruska, inventor of the electron microscope; Hans Geiger, inventor of the Geiger Counter; and Herman Wilhelm Vogel, who made major advances in color photographic technology. The TUB continues this tradition of academic development and is at the forefront of modern technological research. Approximately 27,000 students attend TUB, of which 5,700 are international students. Studying at the TUB offers students a unique opportunity to study in one of Europe's most historically interesting cities.
The Technical University of Berlin offers a wide range of technical subjects. They have also recently begun to integrate liberal arts courses into their framework to help students understand the social context and implications of their work. The TUB offers: Communications and History, Educational and Didactic Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Process Technology, Environmental Technology, Materials Sciences, Environment and Society, Architecture, Civil Engineering, Applied Geosciences, Transport and Applied Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Production Technology, Electrical Engineering, Computer Sciences, Economics and Management, Food Technology, and Biotechnology.
The capital of the unified Germany, Berlin possesses an extraordinary cultural wealth. The city offers a wide variety of activities for every taste: theater, cabaret, film, festivals, art exhibitions, music, dancing, and sports. Having weathered a turbulent history, Berlin is experiencing a cultural and economic enlightenment. With a population of approximately 3.5 million, the relatively recent unification of Germany has made Berlin a center of political power once again. The TUB is situated in the middle of the city, and the large student population of Berlin contributes to the lively, intellectual climate of the city. The city has a wealth of world-class museums including the German historical museum, and the check point Charlie museum documenting the creation and destruction of the Berlin wall.
Students receiving exchange placements at the TUB will pay tuition at MSU in the same amount as if studying in Bozeman. Each student is responsible for his/her room and board at the TUB, as well as trans-Atlantic travel expenses. Remember to plan for extra expenses such as internal travel and personal spending money as well as for unexpected changes in the exchange rate. There are several scholarships available for studying abroad in Germany.
Financial aid may be available for study abroad at the TUB. Additional costs for study at the TUB (e.g. travel to and from the study site) may be used in calculating student's financial aid package. Students are responsible to apply to the Office of Financial Aid.
