TU Braunschweig looks back on a history of almost 300 years and thus has the longest tradition among technical universities in Germany. It is one of the nine leading technical universities in Germany and has two clusters of excellence and around 200 international partnerships.
The main campus of TU Braunschweig is only a few minutes' walk from the historic centre of the city of Braunschweig with its many picturesque half-timbered buildings and medieval townscape. Ideal conditions for innovative summer school courses at a traditional location.

The Entrepreneurship Spring School is an event format for familiarization with the topic of entrepreneurship and start-up culture.
The start-up process is examined in a comprehensive and practical manner. Before and during the event, participants think about which ideas they would like to turn into a business model. These ideas are then worked out together in teams that are formed during the event. In addition to the development of innovative ideas in interdisciplinary teams, the Entrepreneurship Spring School also offers participants the opportunity to learn entrepreneurial skills and abilities and to network with the regional start-up ecosystem.
Further information can be found in the flyer and at the Entrepreneurship Hub of TU Braunschweig and Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences.
The International Entrepreneurship Summer School (IESS) is an online program for a "hands on" introduction to the world of entrepreneurship and start-up culture.
The programme is open to committed future founders. After the kick-off event, participants will form hybrid or fully virtual teams of international participants who can then work together on their business ideas. It is not necessary to have your own business idea. The Entrepreneurship Hub will also showcase selected cutting-edge technologies recently developed at TU Braunschweig and present participants with potential business ideas that you can work on.

The world is facing an enormous challenge in transferring aviation into a more sustainable and greener transport mode. Zero emission flights, including the wider mobility sector, are the current priority and require enormous research and development activities which can by no means be limited to classical aerospace disciplines.They require new interdisciplinary approaches, methods and teams covering all aspects from aerospace as well as areas such as materials and structures, chemistry, electrical engineering or even economics and social sciences. In our Summer School course, you can acquire both theoretical knowledge and practical project experience in the field to address these grand challenges, and to connect with fellow students from different countries.
