The universities similar to TU Dresden are:
The teachers are young and thus very enthusiastic. Throughout the Corona pandemic we mainly attended online classes, nevertheless, the teachers helped us the best they could so that we could understand the lessons and finish our work. Learning resources are uploaded on the learning platform on time.
They also try to keep the teaching program as updated as possible, which is essential for studying media. I really like the seminars where we get to plan and do our own projects.
However, for people doing Media Informatics as a combined minor, the learning program is a bit too demanding. Most of the time I am investing more time into my minor than my major. I really hope in the future the program would be less difficult for non-programmers like us.
The main building of the Social Sciences campus is a bit small, however, and is a new building. I would love to study in one of the older, historic buildings of the uni.
The modules of the programme are very loaded. Students go to class at 7 am and return back home at 6 pm, and this happens from Monday to Friday. For lecturers, most of them translate directly their slides from German to English, making it difficult for some of us to get the picture. Also the fact just one module can be taught by four to five professors is another problem. Honestly, some of the workloads should be reduced so that students can have time to study. I would not recommend TU Dresden to anyone because students are really stressed at my faculty. TU Dresden is international, but looking at my course for instance (Tropical forestry) there are no career prospects.View more
The first semester at uni was pretty nice. After that quality was less good. Practical knowledge and experiences would make everything better. The main focuses are on public transport, but more aviation would be nice.View more
As a student of traffic engineering, I can highly recommend TU Dresden. Dresden in general is a wonderful place to live and can impress with very many sights and historical attractions.
The university campus is located in the south of the city but still very central (about 5 minutes from the main train station).
The university itself is a mixture of historical and modern buildings.
What I particularly like is the cohesion of the students at our faculty. I especially like the opportunities for co-determination.
The teaching at the faculty is a bit old-fashioned and many staff members are not quite up to date, but I hear better things from other faculties. Some professors are also busier with their own companies than teaching at the university but that is a small fraction. In addition, what can be said about the teaching is that, with a few exceptions, all the lecturers are aware of the importance of their subject. I would wish that a little more ecological approaches and current developments would be addressed.
Overall, the TU Dresden is highly recommended.
High access to masters and big level of foerign students. Great installations and possibility to stay after studies in the investigation field. The campus is great with some main historical buildings and other recently built and modern ones. Possibility to eat for 2€ in mensas and a in-library museum with some of the oldest scripts from aztec periods.
Study level is demanding but not overwhelming, professors are attentive and there is always chance to have some fun in the city, since it shares 2 universities.View more
TU Dresden is a good university! In my personal experience the teaching quality is (mostly) high even though it’s not quite on the level of most international elite universities. The campus and the city are nice and the costs of living are extremely low. The bureaucracy is sometimes slow and troublesome, however, not worse than at many other unis. I would recommend TU Dresden, especially for an undergraduate degree. I can also highly recommend the International Relations program. On the other hand, I would not choose it for any other social sciences degree, except economics. The directorate’s support is clearly with the technical studies and departments, while neglecting others.View more
The university is one of the ten best universities in Germany. With a very close connection to the industry and well equipped labs the university surely provides a wide variety of engineering courses. The university also provides non-engineering courses which also popular in the Europe. The medicine faculty is also one of the best in the whole country in terms of research and services. Loads of international coming to the university either doing their Erasmus or whole bachelor/master degree. Courses are also provided in English. Many student organisations are also active in the university.View more
I genuinely enjoy studying at TU Dresden. Many of my classes are held by well known professors and we regularly have high-level guest talks. The facilities are excellent with spacious libraries and access to many resources. I particularly enjoy the various opportunities for social life and engagement in different student associations and the events constantly organized on campus and in the city. The mensa is always worth visiting! The university is really close to the city center and the main station.View more
