Groups and representative bodies

Above and beyond the programmes of study, the TU Darmstadt and the Department of Mechanical Engineering offer a wide range of opportunities to get involved and to participate in leisure activities.

Representative bodies

The TU Darmstadt is a self-governing university. This means a high level of participation in decision-making. The various interest groups can use their representative bodies to influence decisions made. You can find information about the central TU bodies here…
