Program Description:
Braunschweig BannerThe residents of Braunschweig are proud of their city. With its medieval-style downtown, it is widely regarded as one of the prettiest cities in Germany and Braunschweig is also home to international, cutting-edge companies. The city is full of contrasts, for example, the old castle in the center of town has been converted into a shopping center. This combination of modernity and tradition attracts an increasing number of students to the city. The TU Braunschweig is the oldest technical college in Germany and is one of the most prestigious. Many of its degree programs – such as Mechanical Engineering – benefit from practice-oriented instruction and close cooperation with local industry. A number of well-known corporations operate in Braunschweig and the surrounding region, e.g. Intel, Volkswagen, Siemens and the fashion company New Yorker.
