University description (as per official university website)

Good reputation and tradition: the TU Braunschweig is the oldest technical university in Germany: the cornerstone of our modern university was already laid in the year 1745 with the Collegium Carolinum.
Interdisciplinary study – interdisciplinary courses of study: The TU is precursor in this field. The first interdisciplinary courses of study have already been introduced here in the 1980s. Today, approximately every third student is enrolled in one of the interdisciplinary courses of study. The look beyond one's own course of study is obligatory for all.
Thinking and research in networks and projects: interdisciplinary research centers and competence networks in the key technologies promote scientific performances.
