Our university wants to become more interesting for international students. As a prerequisite, we need a professional and competent way to represent ourselves internationally. Therefore, it is indispensable to have explicit terminology and a certain consistency in printed products, our web presence and in our direct communication. This is not always that easy: A lot of terms can be used and translated in many different ways.
This glossary in German to English provides clarification. It determines fundamental terms and provides support for the translation of texts into English. It was a conscious decision to use American English. The glossary was conceptualized by a small group, consisting of the International Office, the Admission and Examination Office, the Language Center and the team of the degree courses “Technical Management” and “Engineering Physics”.
