At the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Information Technology, Physics at the TU Braunschweig, doctoral degrees as Dr.-Ing. or Dr. rer. nat. are possible.
The doctoral phase comprises independent scientific work and the performance of tasks at the institute (research/teaching/administration). It also includes doctoral preparation that is adequately supervised in terms of both content and methodology. In addition, it provides space for participation in continuing education events for the acquisition of additional interdisciplinary qualifications.

Graduate schools

International Max Planck Research School on Physical Processes in the Solar System and Beyond at the Universities of Braunschweig and Göttingen

The International Max-Planck Research School (IMPRS) on "Physical Processes in the Solar System and Beyond" offers a first choice possibility for graduate students to obtain their PhD degree in a major scientific discipline with optimal career opportunities.


Solar System School

Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology

The TU Braunschweig and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) aim with the Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology at establishing a world-wide visible, unique training center for the science and application of traceable measurements. As reflected in the name of the school, three characteristics are combined: metrology, as an interdisciplinary field with a common, rigorous methodology, guides the curriculum and scientific program. Metrology aims at international harmonization and thus the school has a pronounced international approach. Finally, with the strong metrology-related research focus of the TU Braunschweig, and with PTB, Europe’s largest and internationally leading national metrology institute, Braunschweig is the first-choice location for such a graduate school.
