The Faculty of Mechanical Science and Engineering has been at the core of the development of TU Dresden and it is today the largest faculty at this university. This tradition and the responsibility for the present and the future suggest that the principles of thinking and actions followed by the faculty should be captured in a mission statement. It provides guidance for all faculty members and formulates the principles that align with how the faculty conducts its substantive work and promotes a culture of coexistence. The mission statement of the faculty is embedded in the mission statement of TU Dresden.
