Unique Profile – Wilhelm Büchner
Wilhelm Büchner (1816–1892) completed an apprenticeship as a pharmacist before studying chemistry in Heidelberg and Giessen with Justus von Liebig. In his parental home in Darmstadt he had already carried out first process experiments to create coloring agents that simplified the new production method for blue dye. In 1845 he established his „ultramarine factory“ in Pfungstadt. He also participated in international fairs and was one of those honored at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851 and the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1855. His products were eventually delivered to almost all European countries as well as to customers in Asia and America. He quickly became a successful and prosperous entrepreneur who continued to carry out research and experiments throughout his life. Besides his passion for technology, innovation, uniqueness, and entrepreneurial spirit are attributes that describe Wilhelm Büchner and also define the university. Wilhelm Büchner University is more than a name – it is our unique profile.
Darmstadt – an Engineering Hub
According to the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Darmstadt Rhine Main Neckar Region, Darmstadt is one of central Europe’s most in-demand locations and one of Germany’s most promising regions when it comes to growth prospects. Its key strength lies in the link between academic engineering and the predominantly industrial sectors of car manufacturing, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics, medical and measurement technology, chemistry, aviation and aerospace, and information and communication technology.
