The rich ore deposits in the Harz Mountains were the breeding ground for the economic importance of the region as a center of raw materials production. They formed the roots of the “Clausthaler montanistische Lehrstätte” founded in 1775 from which the internationally renowned “Bergakademie” (Mining Academy of Clausthal) originated in 1864.


Research and education at Clausthal University of Technology are currently focused on Energy and Raw Materials, Natural Science and Materials Science, Economics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering.


The research at the TU Clausthal deals with technologies and methods for the sustainable management of the resources energy - material - information and takes up the concept of the circular economy, to which various aspects are contributed.

Digitization is seen as an essential cross-cutting issue.


Known as HiWi jobs in German, student assistant positions are a chance to earn extra money within the university itself while you complete your degree program.
