Chemnitz University of Technology was founded in 1836 as a school of technical vocational education („Gewerbschule“). Soon, it became the backbone of innovative technology in engineering enterprises of the region of Southwest Saxony. On its way from a vocational school to a royal academy and onwards to a university, it was essential to be equipped with a “General department”. This was to become the Faculty of Arts, containing philological studies, human and social studies. This faculty is also the home of the institute of education (Institut für Pädagogik).
