International cooperations

We believe that the demands of a globalized world must be met to achieve a sustainable development. We are also convinced that a strong worldwide network and international cooperations are the groundwork to achieve this goal. Therefore, it is our aim to establish close contacts with selected partners and to offer workshops and talks at other universities. These collaborations aim at an active exchange of researchers and students which fosters an international academic work environment. All collaborations are based on bilateral memorandums of understanding to ensure lasting partnership between the universities. In addition to our Joint German-Australian Research Group and several European partners we cooperate with different universities around the world. Below you can find a selection of these partners.

INDIA | Birla Institute of Technology and Science - BITS Pilani
In 2009 we started a cooperation with the Indian university BITS Pilani in the state of Rajasthan. The BITS Pilani is one of the most renowned universities in India and like the TU Braunschweig a technology and science oriented institute. With Prof. Kuldip Sangwan and his team we have found a strong partner in India. Currently, an intensive exchange programme for students and researchers fosters our academic cooperation and the intercultural understanding of our research groups. In 2016 the DAAD founded project JInGEL started, in which a experience lab for practice oriented education is developed at BITS Pilani.

USA | University of Michigan
Together with Prof. Spengler of the Institute of Automotive Management and Industrial Production we have set up a cooperation with Prof. Steve Skerlos and his team of the University of Michigan. The goal of this cooperation is the identification of socio-economic, economic and regulatory challenges for the market launch of key technologies of sustainable mobility. Amongst other things, research results of our project STROM and a related project of Prof. Skerlos' were exchanged within the programme SUSTECH. SUSTECH was funded by the International Bureau of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

SINGAPORE | Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology - SIMTech
The cooperation with SIMTech exists since 2002. Regularly, Prof. Herrmann gives talks and seminars. In 2013 he became a Visiting SIMTech Fellow. This new position is a great starting point to strengthen the cooperation. Information on current opportunities in the student exchange program are available here.                Foto: Visit of F.
