Vice President for Digitalization and Technology Transfer

Amtskette der TU Braunschweig

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Krafczyk joined the Executive Board on 1 April 2020. He is responsible for all matters relating to digitalization and technology transfer.

Our Carolo-Wilhelmina is working hard to expand digital processes both in terms of quality and quantity in order to meet the current challenges in teaching, research and administration in the best possible way and to constantly improve the learning and working conditions for all those involved. In addition, I also intend to further develop the synergies and cooperation with established and new industrial partners on a supra-regional level, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
