International Joint Programs
Erasmus Mundus Program
The famous Program of the European Union supports our two Joint Master Programs in cooperation with other higher education institutions from the EU. It funds a number of scholarships for students and academics studying or teaching on Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses.
TUK has two Erasmus Mundus Masters Programs in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and in the Department of Computer Science.

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.
