(March 16, 2010)--The University of Texas at San Antonio and the Berlin Institute of Technology (TUB) (Technische Universitat Berlin) entered into an agreement of cooperation March 2 in Berlin, Germany. Julius M. Gribou, UTSA executive vice provost and senior international officer, and Dr. Kurt Kutzler, president of the Berlin Institute of Technology, signed the agreement based on the strategic plans of both institutions, centering on collaboration and diversity.

"We have joined a very select group of U.S. academic institutions that currently have agreements with TUB," said Gribou. "This is an excellent opportunity to collaborate in the critical areas of research focus at UTSA with one of the most prestigious German institutes of technology."

"The immediately identifiable research areas will be in fields such as energy, natural sciences, civil security, knowledge management, information and communication, and shaping of human living space," Gribou said. "We anticipate initial collaborations will involve the UTSA colleges of engineering, sciences and architecture."

Berlin Institute of Technology

The internationally renowned Technische Universitat Berlin is in Germany's capital city. With more than 27,000 students, TUB is one of the largest German technical universities. Its research and teaching endeavors represent a broad spectrum of academic disciplines ranging from engineering science to natural science, planning science and economics, as well as the humanities and social sciences.

The university alumni and professor list includes eight Nobel prize winners. Additionally, TUB is involved in several hundred projects funded by the European Commission, a driving force of the European Union institutional system.

The TUB was founded in 1879 under the name Royal Technical College of Charlottenburg (later Berlin) by merging the Building Academy, established in 1799, and the Vocational Academy, established in 1829. In 1916, it was integrated with the Mining Academy, which was founded in 1770.

Like UTSA, TUB continues to develop regional, national and international partnerships with science and industry. According to Wikipedia, TUB has a diverse enrollment of nearly 21 percent international students, the highest proportion of foreign students of all German universities. Also like UTSA, TUB includes diversity as a key component of its strategic plan.
