Faculty V of the TU Berlin stands out because of its strong commitment to research and cooperation with industry. At present, our Faculty is involved in around 480 projects, incorporating the work of around 580 people, who are financed by external third-parties in the form of grants, research contracts, or business contracts. The range of current projects spans from research and development work in the area of micro- and nanotechnology to the development and optimisation of large-scale technological systems, such as the ICE (Intercity Express railway) or modern commercial airliners.

Alongside research projects within the university itself, the research financed by third-party funding plays an important role in the Faculty. As well as considerable funding from the DFG (German Research Foundation), the EU, and the federal ministries (especially the BMBF, the Federal Ministry of Education and Research) – in 2015, Faculty V received the sum of € 30 million from third parties. A considerable part of this sum comes from cooperation with partners from industry and the finance sector. For instance, our Faculty was involved with nation-wide research associations on the development of the Transrapid (the monorail train Transrapid) and the world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A 380. We also have numerous industrial partners in the realm of aero- and astronautics. One area of research with a long tradition is the development of so-called picosatellites, in which the TU Berlin plays a leading collaborative role internationally. In total, ten satellites have so far been put into orbit, in cooperation with other scientific areas. Faculty V is currently involved in one collaborative research centre (SFB 1029; TurbIn) and in a range of research associations.
