Beuth University – a name with pedigree in Berlin

Christian Peter Wilhelm Beuth (1781-1853) is regarded as the founder of education in engineering in Berlin, and is one of the most eminent figures of the 19th century. Beuth became famous for his initiatives in education policy and for promoting innovations in the fields of sciences and engineering.

The “Technische Schule” (“Technical School”), later renamed as the Ingenieurakademie Beuth (“the Beuth Engineering Academy”), was founded in 1909. This institution, out of which grew the Beuth University of Applied Sciences, became a permanent fixture among Berlin’s educational establishments.

Beuth University was founded in 1971 as the Technische Fachhochschule Berlin (TFH) when several engineering academies were merged. In order to highlight the long tradition of the university and the institutions which preceded it, the TFH was renamed as the Beuth University of Applied Sciences Berlin in 2009.

Today, the university’s educational offerings follow a humanist principle shaped by the institution’s spiritual founding fathers, Beuth, Linnaeus, and Schinkel. In honour of this tradition, Beuth University today makes a clear contribution to shaping the city of the future.
