Quality management

The overall quality management concept for TU Braunschweig is based on the departmental principle, a division of the workload, with clearly marked responsibilities. It follows current laws and other framework conditions of the state of Lower Saxony, particularly the objectives agreement between TU Braunschweig and the Ministry of Science and Culture (MWK), and the 2013 Higher education development agreement and its updates until 31 December 2021.

The internal quality objectives are based on the strategy papers and other key documents on the development of degree programmes, “Methods for the agreement of objectives for programmes of study and capacity calculations”, “Guidelines for degree programmes”, “Criteria for dual degree programmes”, “Guidelines for advisory quality” and “Guidelines for ensuring educational success”.

Responsibilities and tasks are clearly divided between the central unit (Executive Board) and the decentralised units (departments/disciplines, institutes, administrative units), and the two quality management cycles are linked. Care is taken to maintain an equilibrium between central control and scope for actions and decisions in the decentralised units. The departments contribute their expertise and participate in cooperation projects to pursue jointly developed objectives.

Another key principle is process focus, which means that those involved in quality management collaborate to complete a process and not depending on their affiliation to an organisational unit.

Sustainability of the system is also central to our quality management. This is reflected, for instance, in the continuous and sustainable use of the developed tools, and the participation of all groups concerned in formal and informal committees and project teams.
