Working at TU Braunschweig

Working at TU Braunschweig

Research and Teaching require freedom – which is why it is difficult to compare working at a university with working in the business sector. In addition to hierarchies that are similar to those found in the corporate world, a university with its academic hierarchies and traditions follows its own rules. Technische Universität Braunschweig is no different in this regard.

Our teams are organised in institutes, working groups, administrative units and projects. These are characterised by individual subject- and department-specific cultures and work with a great deal of autonomy. They carry a great responsibility in terms of the accuracy of their scientific results and the education of our students.
