With the 'German University Qatar' we are investing in the talent and entrepreneurial spirit of our citizens. In doing so we and are following the example of the 150-year long success story of the Technical University of Munich". President Prof. Herrmann welcomed the orientation of the new university towards the international standards of the German university system, in particular those of "German Engineering".
