The roots of the Technische Universität Berlin and predecessor institutions date back to the time of Frederick the Great. These included important educational establishments of the Prussian State such as the Royal Mining Academy established in 1770, the Königliche Royal Building Academy founded in 1799, and the Royal Trade Academy, which opened its doors in 1827.
These disciplines find concrete expression in around 40 Bachelor’s and 60 Master’s programs. Many of these are indeed unique. TU Berlin is the only university in the capital region offering engineering subjects.
Such scientific achivements are built on basic research in the natural science disciplines of chemistry and physics, and mathematics, in addition to strongly innovation-oriented research in electrical engineering and the computer sciences for instance.
One obvious indication of the university’s performance and dynamic development is the increase in external funding for its research projects from around 125 million euros in 2009, to circa 179 million euros in 2014. For years, TU Berlin has been ranked as one of the top universities in Germany without a medical school.

Shared rooms for two people are referred to as "twin" rooms, but could appear as "double" rooms in any invoices, as this is how they are labelled by the properties. In every case, this refers to two separate, single beds in one room.

In addition to our main campus situated in Berlin’s Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district in the heart of the “City West” area, TU Berlin also maintains two further large campuses in Berlin. One is located in the historical industrial district Wedding, and the other on the property of the famous “Gasometer” in the Schöneberg district. Individual laboratories, TU buildings and sports halls are also scattered around the city. In late 2012, the university inaugurated its first satellite campus on the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt.
