Introduction - Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) was founded after the Second World War on the ruins of its predecessor. At its inauguration it was bound to promote democracy through its education. This view is further held up through the university law of the federal state of Berlin which states that the disciplinary competences are to be acquired in such a way so that students are able to act democratically. This spirit is still alive at TU Berlin and over the past decades it led to several educational concepts which reach beyond traditional methods of teaching/learning and which expand the limits of what is seen as classical content. Yet, a closer examination is needed as to what role democracy plays within higher education at TU Berlin.
