Faculty V (Mechanical Engineering and Transport
Systems) is one of the largest faculties of the TU Berlin, with more
than 5,000 students, as much as 60 professors, and nearly
400 academic staff members, who work on a large number of national and
international research projects. The seven institutes of Faculty V
cover over 60 academic areas, and are spread over an area of 72,000
square metres, of which 16,000 square metres alone are used for
laboratories, workshops and testing halls.
Our academic activities are focused on achieving sharply-defined goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications, and taking a modern approach to university administration. We strive to promote the dissemination of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress through adherence to the core principles of scientific excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry are a central determinant of research and teaching at our university, as well as at our faculty.
