About Chemnitz University of Technology

Innovation has a strong tradition in Chemnitz. The foundations for the close link between engineering, science and culture in the south-west of Saxony, which still has a determining influence on study and research at CUT, go back to the 16th century. What is now CUT had its foundation with the establishment of the Royal Mercantile College (Königliche Gewerbschule) in 1836, which catered to the region's demand for a well-trained workforce.

In 1900, the year the number of students hit the 1,000 mark for the first time, the status of Royal Technical Academy (Königliche Gewerbeakademie) was awarded to the school. The number of students who studied Mathematics, Sciences and Engineering at the College of Mechanical Engineering, as the school was called after the World Wars, continued to increase steadily and received a new boost in 1986, when the college was recognized as Technical University.

In 1992 and 1993, two new faculties were established the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and the School of Humanities and Social Sciences were added to the traditional Faculties of Sciences and Technology, and the university has since then been able to present a wide educational spectrum to its students. At the moment there are more than 10,300 registered students, following in the footsteps of famous scientists and scholars such as Adolf Ferdinand Weinhold (1841-1917, inventor of the Thermos flask) or Carl von Bach (1847-1931) and Clemens Winkler (1838-1904, who discovered the chemical element Germanium). They among others laid the foundations for CUTs strong emphasis on research as well as implementation which are continued today, mainly concentrating on developing and pace-making fields like TECHNOLOGY, MANAGEMENT and COMMUNICATION.
