Mission: While engineering and natural sciences are the main focus at TU Darmstadt, they cooperate closely with the prominent disciplines of humanities and social sciences. We bring these diverse academic cultures together in one distinctive profile which we continue to develop dynamically. We are renowned worldwide for our outstanding research in the highly relevant profile areas in which we specialise. TU Darmstadt enters into partnerships on an equal footing with universities, research institutes and companies both in Germany and abroad in order to combine the outstanding expertise offered by all partners for the pursuit of a common goal. Our intensive transfer of knowledge is a decisive driver of industry and innovative strength in the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main metropolitan region. Through strategic collaborations and close relationships with society, we promote this region as an internationally renowned research area. Our Innovation and Start-up Centre promotes the entrepreneurial culture and allows ideas to successfully mature into start-ups. And TU Darmstadt has always been firmly anchored and inextricably linked to the City of Science Darmstadt. Just as our cutting edge research has received numerous awards in competitions, our teaching has also been recognised for its innovative approach. Degree courses at TU Darmstadt focus very heavily on research, while at the same time preparing students for the requirements expected of them in the workplace. Our students become creative, discerning and open-minded as they complete their studies within a highly international network. In this way, we give them the qualifications they require for taking on demanding roles in the worlds of academia and business. A degree obtained at TU Darmstadt is a sign of quality and opens up ideal career opportunities. Our graduates are held in high esteem by companies. At TU Darmstadt, young academics are offered a stimulating and exceptionally supportive environment for completing their doctorate or other academic qualifications. The university supports individual development and self-sufficiency as part of a clearly structured, reliable career path. The cooperative culture at TU Darmstadt is shaped by international teams, close interaction with partners outside of the university environment and our active interdisciplinary approach. Due to its autonomous status and size, TU Darmstadt is able to remain particularly flexible and quickly take decisions, which allows it to develop the prerequisites for achieving performance at the highest level.
Vision: Information not localized
The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.
The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.
We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.

These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.
This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
