What is special about TU Braunschweig?

Focus on specialisation in an interesting environment

Braunschweig is an attractive research region and studying here means you are at the cutting edge of science. Our close ties with TU research centres such as the Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFF), the Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen (NFL) and the Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ) promote practical teaching and give you the opportunity to establish business contacts. You can get additional insights into the latest scientific research thanks to our various cooperation partners such as the German Aerospace Center (DLR) or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), National Metrology Institute. From collaborating with the high-tech workshop Protohaus to succeeding with the Cluster of Excellence or setting the world record for the largest paper aeroplane—we are part of the action!


Options over obligations

In the Master’s programme, students take a few compulsory courses. These build on the basics of the Bachelor's programme and are the foundation for the further content of the programme. The majority of the Master's programme, however, consists of courses that students choose according to their own interests. Thanks to a variety of elective courses, each student develops a personal profile and finds their own specialisation.


From the tribometer to the hybrid drive

A functional and efficient mobility that is both socially acceptable and sustainable and considers the demands of transport and production capacities is elementary for every human being and is the very basis and object of value creation in our society. As a student of this Master’s degree programme, you will acquire the necessary knowledge, both broad and in-depth, to successfully meet the growing demands made on functionality, individuality, personalisation and flexibility, safety and comfort on the one hand, and economic efficiency and environmental compatibility of modern vehicles and machines on the other.
