Mechanical Engineering at TU Darmstadt is essentially formed by the people living and practicing it. This is the case, because we believe in people, their individual and unique ideas as well as our strength as a team! We practice an open and curious mindset and thereby prove again and again our ability to develop inter- and transdisciplinary ideas and solutions. With this approach we are capable to tackle and shape the major topics of the future. This is in line with our philosophy: shaping the future doing research as a team. Therefore, the people making up the Mechanical Engineering in Darmstadt are its integral part. We consider each students and research assistant individually. We support the unique journeys through life and assist students and researchers individually. As a result, we offer free space and encourage self-responsibility. We develop technology with and for people. We do so because advances and progress are human powered.
