Pakistani students at University of Kaiserslautern (TU-KL) welcome you to the small but beautiful city of Kaiserslautern. Our university is among the best German universities in the fields of Mathematics, Computer Sciences & Electrical Engineering. The University provides a good and healthy opportunity for study and self-development. There is not only a central library but each department has its own library also, spacious lecture rooms and qualified teaching staff. A number of research institutes have close contacts with the University, which gives a good opportunity for practice. All these research centers are at walking-distance form the main campus. Some of the famous Institutes are: Fraunhofer Institute for Technical & Industrial Mathematics (ITWM), Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (IESE), German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and Max Planck Institute for Software systems (MPI). These institutes also give an excellent opportunity for students to work as assistants, do their Masters thesis and projects or work with them as PhD students. Students can find some part-time jobs at these institutes. Recently, our university started a collaboration with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Pakistan. In this collaborative program, students from NUST will join PhD programs at TU-KL. There are also some projects going on between TU-KL and various universities of Pakistan (LUMS, FAST-NU, UET Lahore). These projects are funded by DAAD and they give an opportunity to Pakistani PhD students to become a bridge between the two institutions. Kaiserslautern city itself is a very calm town.
