Chemnitz University of Technology

Chemnitz, Germany


Chemnitz University of Technology is a diverse university that is a part of a strong regional, national and international network. It is home to roughly 10,000 students from around 100 countries. Due to its high proportion of international students, Chemnitz University of Technology occupies a leading position nationwide among state universities. With around 2,300 employees in the sciences, technology and administration, the university is also an important catalyst in the region. Chemnitz University of Technology sees itself as a university with a familial feel to it, where members work together and treat each other as peers.

The university sees itself as a driver of innovation in dealing with the important problems of tomorrow. Against the backdrop of global changes and new demographics, there is a need for comprehensive solutions that are sustainable, interdisciplinary and beneficial to our society. For this purpose, Chemnitz University of Technology has defined its three core competencies in research and teaching as follows: Materials and Smart Systems, Resource-efficient Production and Lightweight Structures, and Humans and Technology. Within the area of Materials and Intelligent Systems, the university focuses on the research and development of innovative materials and material systems as well as new integration technologies, for example, in vehicle construction, renewable energy technology and medical technology. Functional applications through intelligent systems are of particular importance.

At the professorship of Electrochemical Sensors and Energy Storage at the TU Chemnitz, an international and interdisciplinary research team lead by Prof. Karin Leistner will conduct the synthesis and characterization of biocompatible magnetoelectric and magneto-ionic nanostructures and thin films.
