The TDU is a state research university with a special profile, planned with a medium-term size of 5,000 students and doctoral candidates, with a three-level study system (BA, MA, PhD) in five faculties:
    Engineering, natural sciences, economics and administration, law, cultural and social sciences.
    38 German universities and the DAAD, which have joined in a consortium, are at TDU's side as partners. The German language, study and practical stays in Germany and a significant proportion of German teaching staff are important features of the TDU that contribute to its particular attractiveness.

The University of Cologne is the responsible German partner university for the Faculty of Business and Administration.
