Today, TUL consists of six faculties and two institutes, of which three are technology-oriented: Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Textile Engineering, and Faculty of Mechatronics, Informatics, and Interdisciplinary Studies. Research and development activities of the technology-oriented faculties is supported by the basic scientific disciplines concentrated at the Faculty of Science, Humanities, and Education and the economic disciplines concentrated at the Faculty of Economics. The faculty menu also contains the Faculty of Art and Architecture and the Institute for Nanomaterials, Advanced Technologies, and Innovation from the TUL parts as well.


The academic programmes offered at the University, and the research performed by the academics, is of great benefit to the City of Liberec and its surrounding region. Universitys graduates are able to satisfy the local demand for specialists in engineering, textile industries, elementary and junior high school teachers, architects, economists and business specialists.


The academics and students take part in research and co-operate closely with other foreign universities. Thanks to the Municipal and Regional authorities, the university acquired new buildings, which enabled it to set up additional classrooms and laboratories.
