The Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, often known as TUBAF or TU Bergakademie Freiberg, is a public technological university located in the German city of Freiberg, Saxony. It was founded in 1765. The exploration, mining, extraction, processing, and recycling of natural resources and waste, as well as the creation of new materials, are its main objectives. It is currently the oldest mining and metallurgy university in the entire globe. In Freiberg, more than 4,000 students are presently enrolled on 69 different programs of study that are grounded in science and practice. As professionals in business and industry, science and research, as well as public administration, our graduates are in high demand. An extremely international university is Freiberg. With institutions in countries including China, France, Ghana, Italy, Poland, Russia, Thailand, and others, double-degree agreements are in place. The university grants international students about 30% of its PhD degrees. The university provides both German-taught programs and fully English-taught foreign programs.
