In the cultural metropolis of Dresden, music and art are just as much a defining feature of the university environment as engineering and technology.
Dresden International University (DIU)
Dresden International University is a state-recognized private university with a strong international leaning. It is a network institution which counts on teaching staff from Dresden University of Technology, other colleges and those putting the theory into practice within companies.
As a result it can use these skills both in teaching and research.
The UNU is the academic arm of the United Nations. It carries out its own research and educational projects. Dresden is home to what is only the second UNU institution to be established in Germany: the UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-Flores). UNU-FLORES is to play a major role in developing integrated, sustainable management strategies for using the resources of water, soil and waste.
Dresden’s success is based on key technologies including microelectronics, information-and-communications, new materials, photovoltaic and nanotechnology, and, life sciences and biotechnology. The interdisciplinary collaboration between businesses and research facilities helps move Dresden forward.
