By participating in the Prof.- Programme, professors benefit from offers exclusively related to their profession.

The courses in the Prof.- Programme are geared towards topics relevant to you as an academic leader at TU Braunschweig. During our Welcome Programme for newly appointed professors, at the Prof.Talk, in the Forum Wissenschaft und Führung [Forum for Science and Leadership], and in various advice-giving formats, we provide the opportunity to discuss questions and exchange experiences with your peers.

Welcome Programme

As a newly appointed professor, you will have to face numerous challenges. Our Welcome Programme provides you with an orientation framework for your everyday life at TU Braunschweig.

In a total of six modules, three of which are offered in both the summer and winter semesters, you will find answers to central questions about matters of university administration and the processes and structures at TU Braunschweig. With the three hands-on courses, we offer you practical knowledge for your work. At the same time, the Welcome Programme facilitates the formation of new contacts with other newly appointed professors and key contact persons at the university’s institutions, as well as the opportunity to get into contact with the university authorities.

The Welcome Programme for the 2022/23 Winter Semester will take place on campus or as digital/hybrid events.


At Prof.Talk you will have the opportunity to take part in an exclusive exchange on teaching, leadership or, as a junior professor or tenure-track professor, on the topic of evaluation in a collegial setting among professors.

Once per semester, we offer you two hours in a moderated setting to bring in your concrete practical questions and concerns, to discuss them collegially and to take away new impulses for your everyday work.

Forum Science and Leadership

In the Science and Leadership Forum, we offer exclusive training opportunities for professors on the topic of leadership skills.

In these events, experienced speakers, coaches or trainers provide all interested professors with inspiration on changing leadership topics. Here, topic-related issues can be discussed and ideas for dealing with them can be developed. Depending on the scope of the event, its orientation and the size of the group, the speakers respond to the participants individually and provide space for discussion and exchange of experience. If you would like a topic, please feel free to contact us with your ideas.

Advice and Coaching

Challenges of everyday university life require an external perspective from time to time. Our consulting and support formats offer you an appropriate environment in which you are given space to discuss individual as well as group-related issues, up to and including process support.

If you are interested in coaching sessions, please email prof-programm(at) to get in touch with us. We will then contact you or quickly put you in touch with your desired coach. Appointments for coaching services can be arranged individually with the relevant contact person.
