The TU‘s academic community comprises some 17,192 students and 3,508 staff members, its academic focus is on engineering and natural sciences, closely linked with humanities, economics, social sciences and education. The name Carolo-Wilhelmina stems from the founding fathers of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, the dukes Carl and Wilhelm of Braunschweig-Lüneburg. In 1745, Duke Carl founded the Collegium Carolinum, laying the foundations for the first technical university in Germany. Among the early students was mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauß.
Braunschweig unites tradition and high technology, outstanding infrastructure and an excellent location at the heart of northern Europe. According to a current EU study, Braunschweig is the most research intensive region in Europe, boasting the highest density of scientists. The city is home to three universities. Intensive research is undertaken at 27 renowned institutions and 250 companies in the high-tech sector. Its spectrum ranges from biotechnology via financing all the way to transportation technology. Braunschweig has a lot to offer, not least of all its unique charm: that of a large and modern city with a rich past, where you can find refreshing green oases of leisure alongside the bustle of inner city life. First mentioned in records in 1031, Braunschweig continued to evolve, from the 12th century on strongly influenced by the House of Guelf and the Hanseatic tradition. Magnificent historical buildings such as Dankwarderode Castle and St. Blasii Cathedral in the heart of the city, as well as streets lined with historic houses, still bear witness to Braunschweig’s eventful past.
