About the city:
Braunschweig (Brunswick) is the second largest city in Lower Saxony in northern Germany with approximately 240000 inhabitants.
It is a city with a medieval structure that rose from a supply and resting place about 1000 years. In the following centuries Braunschweig became an important city for trade and culture. Still now a lot of the medieval relicts can be seen in Braunschweig - such as the famous timberframe buildings, the castle and the churches.
Nowadays Braunschweig is the centre of the most intensive research region in the whole European Union. The spectrum of the research ranges from Biology, Physical Engineering and most of all aerospace. Europe's only research airport is located in Braunschweig and with it the Federal Civil Airworthiness Authority of Germany, the German Centre for Aeronautical and Space Research "DLR", Aerodata AG and many more. Furthermore there is the oldest technical university in Germany, the Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina, established in 1745. Now this impressive educational facility has more than 14000 students and is organized in 10 departments and 111 institutes. The University offers a wide range of courses and research opportunities in the fields of information technology, the sciences, physics, medicine, chemistry, pharmacy and more.
The university offers plenty of lectures and seminars to aerospace students. Most of those are offered by the following 4 aerospace-related institutes:
- Institute of Flight Guidance
