TU9 German Universities – An Alliance for Excellence

Dear HEB folks, I have been getting a lot of requests lately for throwing light on MS in Germany as an option, especially from people who have a core engineering background. But before I post University specific information, I thought I will throw light on the most reputed German Universities, like IVY leagues that we have for US.

So, in this post, I will introduce you guys to an academic alliance called TU9, which the German Education bodies have formed, which has qualified 9 universities as the most excellent for technical education. Together these universities are called the TU9 German Universities of Excellence.

Here are the german universities that are part of TU9 :

  1. RWTH Aachen University
  2. TU Berlin
  3. TU Braunschweig
  4. TU Darmstadt
  5. TU Dresden
  6. Leibniz Universität Hannover
  7. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology
  8. TU München
  9. University of Stuttgart


These are some of the most excellent universities for higher education and research across Europe and according to statistics, these 9 institutes attract 25% of all of the External funding for research every year.  Almost 60% PhD.  are awarded from these 9 Universities across all of Germany. Similarly, these are an excellent option if you are considering to pursue MS in Germany. There is a high percentage of international students at these universities and these german universities deliver a large amount of the qualified engineers to the European workforce every year.

The TU9 group universities offer wide range of programs with a large emphasis on natural sciences and engineering studies. These universities are also among the top German institutes for Business and economics programs. Many of these programs are taught entirely in English and you can get all the information about the English programs from their English programs section.

I will be posting more information about german universities specifics and program highlights in my subsequent posts. Till then stay tuned to HEB and don’t forget to click on “Subscribe”,  so you don’t miss a single post.
