Innovation, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, or e-mobility - all our modern developments require resources, energy and materials as well as their sustainable use. This is why Freiberg scientists are engaged in excellent research and teaching on the fundamentals and processes related to natural resources, energy and materials. We combine all fields of engineering, natural sciences, geosciences and economics under one roof. In this way, the university not only ensures versatile research, but also a systemic education of its students.
