The Darmstadt University of Technology has been an internationally oriented research university since its beginnings in 1877. Its focus on technology — including engineering, natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences — ranges from basic research to everyday applications. Since 2005, the Darmstadt University holds the status of the first autonomous university in Germany, continually increasing funding in order to strengthen the profile and to continue providing excellent services in the future. The department of sociology offers six specialty fields ranging from sociology of education to empirical social research. Over the years, it has gained methodological experiences in the field of educational research in several research projects. The German partner has extensive experience in conducting school-based surveys in the general educational system as well as in the vocational education system using paper-based self-administered surveys and Web surveys offering regular contribution to international discussion on the advancements of the survey research methodology. They also hold a record of publications on socio-economic factors affecting educational decisions with which they provide the necessary skills needed in the 7eu-vet project.
