Solid Surface Analysis


At TU Chemnitz, people from more than 90 nations study, research and teach. With approximately 3,000 international students, which corresponds to a share of more than 25 percent, the TU Chemnitz is the most international university in Saxony and one of the most international in Germany.

„Science is virtually unthinkable without internationalisation. For this reason, in addition to our regional roots, we deliberately focus on the international orientation of our university“
