Dresden University of Technology (TUD) is one of the largest technical universities in Germany and is a full university with 14 faculties including medicine, pedagogy etc (over 42000 students including 7000 international and 4700 staff). As a former part of the Soviet bloc of East Germany TUD has significant experience working with universities from the central European and former USSR regions.
It is in the small group of 11 German elite universities and has extensive EU project experience having been involved in 50 Tempus and over 25 CBHE projects.
Two structures within TUD are key in this project:
The Centre of Applied Language and Culture is one of the largest structures at the university and has a Media Centre and a Bologna Process Implementation Unit, having introduced its own ECTS module system based on a communicative teaching approach and has assisted other universities in this. Most importantly the Centre has developed comprehensive EMI training, in addition to Academic, Scientific and Professional writing modules for both German and International students with added training for professors and key administrative management staff.
Secondly, for a successful and smooth implementation of the project, the project leader will be supported by TUD’s European Project Center (EPC) during the complete lifetime of the project. The EPC has been established at TUD to support international project management throughout all phases of EU-funded projects. The team working in the EPC is experienced in European project management and able to advise on and operate in a wide range of areas. The EPC is a Unit in the Directorate for Research at TUD’s Central Administration and offers consultancy and management services to all researchers. Moreover, it coordinates relevant research projects and is active as a partner and coordinator in national and international projects e.g. in EU programs like TEMPUS Erasmus+ .
