Pharmacy has been taught at TU Braunschweig (formerly Collegium Carolinum) since 1835. As one of the largest centres of pharmacy among German universities and the only one in the state of Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), the campus hosts about 700 pharmacy students today. During the study of pharmacy students gain expertise in various aspects of medical drugs ranging from the preparation of bioactive substances, their chemical analysis and pharmaceutical formulation to their effects on humans. Students also get familiar with research at the pharmaceutical institutes which centers around "Bioactive molecules" and "Pharmaceutical formulation and process development" and is embedded in the focus area "Engineering for Health" of TU Braunschweig. Major research themes include rational drug design, molecular pharmacology of cardiovascular diseases, the development of colloidal microparticlesas drug delivery systems and the biotechnology of bioactive compounds from plants. Research groups from all pharmaceutical institutes collaborate with scientists from the Department of Engineering of TU Braunschweig in the newly founded Center of Pharmaceutical Engineering (PVZ)
Lectures and classes are held in German. For more information about studying pharmacy in Braunschweig, please refer to our German homepage.
