Dresden University (Technische Universitat Dresden), is one of eleven German universities that were identified as an “Excellence University.”  With around 37,000 students, Dresden is the largest university in Saxony today, with about 1/3 of the students being international. Having been committed to sciences and the engineering before the reunification of Germany, Dresden is now a multi-discipline university.

Dresden is the capital city of Saxony in eastern Germany. It is situated in a valley on the River Elbe near the Czech border. The German city of Dresden is lush and green, filled with forests and gardens and parks. The city is rich with cultural and artistic history; the great operatic composer Wilhelm Wagner debuted a number of works here in the 1800s and, today, an independent light opera company keeps the classical art form modern and fresh.
