The current, central information from TU Braunschweig is brought together at magazin.tu-braunschweig.de. You will find a wide range of magazine articles as well as official press releases, upcoming events and brief notes. Four articles each from the magazine and press releases as well as current events also appear on the TU Braunschweig homepage.
Since February 2020, "The Week" has been informing all TU Braunschweig employees every Friday at 10 a.m. about current topics from inside the university and giving a preview of upcoming events. For this purpose, in the editorial office we collect everything that caught our eye or was brought to our attention until 11 a.m. on Thursdays. Together, we then select the "Darling of the Week" and deliver digital bouquets of flowers with which employees across the university convey their thanks and appreciation.
In the event calendar within our magazine you will find public lectures, talks, colloquia, seminars, conferences and workshops from research and teaching at TU Braunschweig. Use the selection options if, for example, you are looking for events for pupils or for specific subject areas.
What is ... in English? What do we use at TU Braunschweig for ...? To promote a consistent use of proper names and technical terms in the university context, please use our Glossary German-English | English-German for your translations. It contains terms from the area of higher education in general as well as terms that are specific to our University. Our aim is to make texts published by TU Braunschweig as easy to understand as possible by using consistent terminology.
This glossary is by no means exhaustive. It is updated on a regular basis. Are you missing a translation or do you have a suggestion? Send an email to the Translation Service of TU Braunschweig.
The proper name of TU Braunschweig is not translated into English. The name "Technische Universität Braunschweig" or "TU Braunschweig" is used. This decision is based on a TU9 resolution. The guidelines for dealing with the German proper names of TU9 universities were developed together with Imperial College in London: The British marketing experts there are of the opinion that English translations of German proper names and especially city names contribute more to confusion than to identification: in no case do they increase the recognition value of the German university. Accordingly, all TU9 universities uniformly use their German names in foreign language presentations.
If in special cases the name of TU Braunschweig has to be translated, the translation "University of Braunschweig - Institute of Technology" or "Braunschweig Institute of Technology" can be used. The version "University of Braunschweig - Institute of Technology" was suggested by Imperial College for all TU9 universities. The doubling of "University" - "Institute" comes about because there is no translation in English for Technische Universität in the sense of a German full university. Under no circumstances should TU Braunschweig be translated as "Technical University of Braunschweig": The term "Technical University", at least in the British English-speaking world, refers to a technical college for applied technology rather than a university. In line with the above, the city name Braunschweig is also not translated.

According to the publication guidelines of TU Braunschweig - passed by the Senate in February 2019 - the correct English translation for the unit “Fakultät” is faculty. A department within a faculty is translated as department, followed by institute and division. A division is thus a department within an institute.
Translations of the names of institutes and units can be found (after logging in) on the TUorga website.
Just like when writing a letter, e-mails establish the first contact and thus convey a piece of the TU Braunschweig's image. Here, too, it is important to have a uniform and functional email signature (combined German | English), which also strengthens the international orientation of TU Braunschweig,
