The Bachelor's degree programme prepares students for the professional field of transportation engineering with areas of application in particular at transport companies, public authorities, manufacturers of transport technology, supervisory authorities and consulting companies. The degree enables immediate career entry and provides a solid foundation of knowledge that enables career starters to acquire specific knowledge that builds on it.
Bachelor's graduates are enabled by this degree programme to apply for Master's degree programmes with a transport-specific focus.
A list of the English-language courses offered by Faculty 3 can be found here.
Through the teaching of solid mathematical fundamentals as well as selected teaching content of computer science, students are enabled to apply mathematical models and suitable software solutions when working on engineering problems. A balanced spectrum of engineering fundamentals creates the basis for an understanding of the transport-specific teaching content that builds on this.
The students gain a fundamental understanding of the interdependencies in transport systems through the fundamentals of transport science that apply to all modes of transport. Transport-mode-specific basics enable students to start their careers in different modes of transport and create the foundation for the acquisition of in-depth specialised knowledge that builds on this. In a compulsory elective area, students have the opportunity to further deepen the competences and skills they have acquired in the individual modes of transport and thus prepare themselves specifically for entering a profession in a specific field of application.
The transport-specific education is supplemented by economic and social science basics that enable students to take economic and social aspects into account appropriately in their later professional field and to prepare for management tasks. In direct preparation for later work in a team, key competences for social and intercultural interaction are taught.
Within the framework of internships as well as the preparation of the Bachelor's thesis, the students apply the acquired knowledge practically by independently working on tasks and acquire experience in the written and oral presentation of results.
At the beginning of the winter semester, the Faculty Office, in cooperation with the students representation offers orientation days for first-year students. There is a varied programme to get to know the TU Braunschweig, your degree programme and your fellow students.
The Erich-Mundstock-Stiftung was founded in 1998 by the former bus entrepreneur Erich Mundstock and is recognised as a non-profit organisation. According to its statutes, the foundation supports talented students from the Braunschweig and Peine region. It therefore awards up to two scholarships of 500.00 EURO/semester to students in the third semester of the bachelor's degree course in transport engineering. The funding period is a maximum of 4 semesters per student.
Further information on the application and requirements can be found on the scholarship website of the TU Braunschweig.
