A New Place of Study is Taking Shape
Interdisciplinary, international and digital – these are the keywords characterizing the concept of the University of Technology Nuremberg. On an area covering approx. 37 hectares, a new urban campus university is being built on Brunecker Straße in Nuremberg. The freshly founded University of Technology Nuremberg offers the chance to completely rethink the concept of a university. The aim is to combine and interlink engineering studies with other topics of society. For this purpose, engineering studies and technical sciences will be offered in combination with natural and social sciences as well as humanities.
Besides the outlined interdisciplinary approach, the university will put its emphasis on courses in English, on digitized forms of teaching and learning as well as future-oriented research. In the medium term, the campus university is to provide a place for learning and personal development for up to 6,000 students in the new quarters of Lichtenreuth– on a campus combining learning, teaching and living.
