Together with TU Berlin rejoice many of her friends, partners, members of the board of trustees, alumni, as well as people who have closely accompanied her in the past.

Prof. Martin Rennert, president of the UdK Berlin

Lupe [1]

“I congratulate TU Berlin and the Berlin University Alliance on achieving funding for their ‘Crossing Boundaries toward an Integrated Research Environment’ proposal. I would like to express my sincere delight to all my colleagues at the participating universities and Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin: Your long and hard preparation has been justly rewarded with the success of your Excellence Strategy. As president of the Berlin University of the Arts, Europe’s largest university of the arts, I am proud to be able to say that our partners have achieved something outstanding for academia and research in Berlin. This success represents a milestone in our joint endeavor to make Berlin one of Europe’s leading centers of science and research."

Sonja Jost, alumna and founder DexLeChem

Lupe [2]

“Yeeeeah, congratulations to my alma mater – Technische Universität Berlin is now a University of Excellence!!! Science and administration have combined to achieve something amazing within the Berlin University Alliance; that was a huge undertaking which will now be rewarded with up to 28 million euros for the coming years! I use the knowledge I acquired at TU Berlin EVERY day in my work. You can’t invest too much in a good education, the rewards are soooo great!!”



Prof. Dr. Drs. h.c. Helmut Schwarz, professor at TU Berlin, former president of the Humboldt Foundation

Lupe [3]

“First of all, allow me to offer my unreserved expressions of congratulations, dear TU Berlin, on this wonderful news from Bonn: University of Excellence! Who would have thought the Grand Old Lady of Charlottenburg and her kin would have achieved such a beautiful tribute when so many people and institutions fall by the wayside in pursuit of leading positions. So: truly an occasion for great joy! Amid all the fanfare it should, however, not be forgotten, that the real and more substantial challenge lies ahead, namely, proving ourselves worthy of this honor and defending our position at the peak of Mount Olympus over the coming decade - may we also succeed here by adopting a vigorous approach to finding solutions to the academic issues TU Berlin still faces – I wish us the greatest success!”

Prof. Dr. Dirk Böndel, chair of the German Museum of Technology Berlin Foundation

Lupe [4]

“I am delighted that my alma mater has been awarded the title of University of Excellence. Congratulations! For me, TU Berlin is more than just my memories of my time there as a student, doctoral candidate, and research assistant. The University and the German Museum of Technology are today engaged in a lively and productive exchange, as demonstrated by projects such as “Gender Technik Museum” or the symposium on Konrad Zuse. I wish TU Berlin every success for the future!” 

Univ. Prof. Dipl.Ing. Dr. Sabine Seidler, Rector of TU Wien

Lupe [5]

“Congratulations to my colleagues at the Berlin universities, particularly of course at TU Berlin, on achieving this success. University of Excellence is a recognition of achievement but also a mandate for the future. I am proud of TU Wien’s strategic partnership with TU Berlin and look forward to our future joint projects. I wish the Berlin University Alliance every success in implementing its common goals for the development of Berlin as a center of science and innovation.”

Professor Jan Szmidt, PhD, DSc, Rector of Technische Universität Warschau

Lupe [6]

“On behalf of the community of Warsaw University of Technology, I am pleased to congratulate the Technische Universität Berlin on achieving the status of University of Excellence as an alliance with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin. I sincerely believe that this award for the German top-level universities provides you opportunity to strengthen your position as an outstanding place for research and further improve your international competitiveness as a strong partner in science and industry. Please accept my congratulations for your outstanding achievements.”

Ulrich Woelk, author and alumnus

Lupe [7]

“It is wonderful news that the title of Universities of Excellence has been awarded to the Berlin universities. Education and research are of key importance for the future of the city. This accolade strengthens Berlin’s position as a center of research, benefiting not only the researchers themselves but everybody living in the city and the capital region.”

Cedrik Neike, member of the board at Siemens AG

Lupe [8]

“Congratulations! Now it’s official: The Berlin University Alliance is excellent. A wonderful signal for Berlin, an important boost for science and research in the capital city. Siemens has been working with TU Berlin for more than 15 years within the CKI for promoting talent and has initiated a number of joint projects. Right now, we are working together as part of our Siemensstadt future project. I would like to wish TU every success in the future and look forward to exploring more common areas of interest together.”

Prof. Dr. Etienne Emmrich, TU Berlin, Dean Faculty II

Lupe [9]

“I am delighted. This decision confirms our extraordinary achievements in science and research in recent years here in Berlin. It is also a challenge to us to not tire in our efforts. Now it is time to encourage colleagues and students at the three universities and the Charité to join the mission to make the Berlin University Alliance flourish.”
