FREIBERG UNIVERSITY OF MINING AND TECHNOLOGY (TUBAF), FACULTY OF MECHANICAL, PROCESS AND ENERGY ENGINEERING
Parallel to the region’s mining tradition, which dates back to the 12th century, Freiberg has evolved into a location for mechanical engineering schools. The founding of today’s Freiberg University of Mining and Technology (TUBAF) in 1765, which is the world’s oldest, still existing university focusing on mining sciences, laid the cornerstone for scientific instruction in these disciplines. More than 1,200 students are currently enrolled at the TUBAF’s Faculty of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering. True to its guiding principle “The University of Resources,” the university contributes its outstanding core competences, above all, in the field of resource and energy efficiency also to those degree courses which are relevant to mechanical engineering.
