The TU Kaiserslautern is embedded in an excellent network of high-ranking research institutions and renowned partners from industry:

Strategic partnerships

TU Kaiserslautern maintains strategic partnerships with the following universities:

Overseas Development Aid Programs

International Research Training Groups

     Special Research Topics (SFBs):


Graduate Schools of Germany`s Federal States

These promote highly qualified scientists and researchers from home and abroad under optimal conditions in accordance with the Anglo-American model. The Graduate Schools offer structured doctoral training in the form of (research-focused) doctoral studies, intensive individual supervision of doctoral thesis / dissertation projects as well as preparing doctoral students for positions in interdisciplinary and international research contexts. Interdisciplinary collaboration among several faculties and an international orientation (largely English-instructed courses) are its features. Graduate Schools, in contrast to the Research Training Groups, (Graduiertenkollegs = temporary institutions) aim to become a firm part of the respective university an so to make a sustainable contribution to structure-building in research and teaching.

Networks of Exellence

A Network of Excellence (NoE) is a concept encompassing technology transfer, research coordination and training. A NoE is a grouping of industrial and academic research teams with common long-term technological goals, closely coordinating their research and training policies. Collectively, such research networks posses: A critical mass of top-level expertsSkills in all relevant disciplines needed to meet the goalsA state-of-the-art infrastructure The participants of NoE offer doctorate programs to students, but were not implemented for this purpose.
