160.11 T.H. - Different name for basically the same level of studies as Universität since technical education became a serious matter in the 1st half of the 19th century. Universität was traditionally where humanities, law, medicine were taught, and did ring more prestigious. A few decades ago, many THs changed name to "T. Universität" - but many of the most prestigious THs proudly retained that name. At the time, the THs were where all engineers and most scientists came from.
