Course content
The field of Computational Engineering conveys a
holistic view of computer-based modelling, simulation
and optimisation of socially relevant questions within
the natural sciences and engineering.
The interdisciplinary, research-oriented, and
comprehensive degree programme Computational
Sciences in Engineering (CSE) encompasses the
following disciplines: engineering sciences,
mathematics, and computer sciences. It takes place in
an interdisciplinary and bilingual environment
encompassing students and lecturers alike.
The Technische Universitt Braunschweig and the
major research institutions of the region, e.g. the
German Aerospace Center (DLR), complement each
other. Students may look for a placement in these

Possible fields of study:
- Civil Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mathematics and Computer Science
Educational organisation
The CSE course of studies is divided into four levels,
consisting of blocks of modules:
- "Basic Core Courses" (BCC), split up into
"Foundations of Natural and Engineering
Sciences" (BCC-ENG) and "Foundations of
Mathematics and Computer Science" (BCC-MCS)
- "Elective Core Courses" (ECC), split up into
"Computational Methods in Engineering
Sciences" (ECC-ENG) and "Applied Mathematics and
Computer Science" (ECC-MCS)
- "In-depth Courses" (IDC), split up into the
"Specialisation Courses" (IDC-LEC) and the
"Specialisation Project" (IDC-PRO)
- "Master's Thesis" (MTH)
Each area has a total of 30 credits; the programme is
completed with 120 credits.
Internships
Internships are not part of the programme, but are
highly recommended. The CSE office supports
students in finding suitable placements.
Forms of assessment
Lectures are concluded by written and oral
examinations. Students also write a scientific paper
(IDC-PRO) in their field of study. The study programme
concludes with a six-month Master's thesis (MTH).

sciences. It takes place in an interdisciplinary and


bilingual environment.
Students who have completed the CSE Master's
programme are able to solve subject-specific problems
and have gained knowledge in engineering within their
specialisation. They can carry out and evaluate
complex numerical analyses of engineering problems.
Furthermore, graduates of the CSE programme
develop intercultural competences and language skills
because of the international set-up of the programme,
which opens up the global job market to them. Due to
the research-oriented profile of the programme,
graduates are also well qualified for a scientific career.
Tuition fees
None
Enrolment fees
Approx. 270 EUR per semester
The enrolment fee supports the student services and
includes a semester ticket which entitles students to
use all public transport and regional trains in
Braunschweig and the federal state of Lower Saxony.
Costs of living

Arrival support
The staff at the CSE office are always available to help
students with any problems or concerns. During the
induction period we support students with their city
registration or residence permit, health insurance,
enrolment, etc. A peer programme and a mentor
programme also play an integral role in helping new
students to get settled.
Many social events are also offered by the university.
The CSE office organises socials such as a Welcome
Party, informal get-togethers in cafs, and pub crawls.
Services and support for
international students
The CSE programme offers a peer programme in
which senior students help new students to get settled.
In the beginning they help them to find their way
around and can offer tips on where to go shopping or
have a beer. Later on, they also give advice on what it
is like to be a CSE student at the TU Braunschweig
and can help new students to familiarise themselves
with their study programmes.
The CSE mentor programme is another important
facility for ensuring that students will successfully
complete their Master's programme. Each student
must have a mentor who will help him/her plan their
studies and will discuss any other difficulties that might
arise in relation to their studies.
International students will be able to take German

classes at the language centre at no cost until they


have successfully completed their DSH-1 exam.
The International Office provides advice and
information on issues such as admission. They also
evaluate applicants' degrees (mandatory, at a fee of 50
EUR)
The International Student Network www.isnbraunschweig.de and the "Internationale GaussFreunde" www.gauss-freunde.de organise a semester
programme with a wide variety of social events and
excursions for international students.
Accommodation
TU Braunschweig has several halls of residence, most
of them situated in the direct vicinity of the three
university campuses. Rents range from 250 - 450 EUR
per month. Applications can be submitted to the

About the city
Braunschweig is a lively student city situated in
northern Germany. With a population of 250,000, it is
big enough to feel cosmopolitan and yet small enough
not to be overwhelming. As an important cultural and
political centre dating back to the Middle Ages,
Braunschweig retains the imprint of each passing age,
from the medieval castle and the Gothic cathedral to
modern shopping streets and leisure facilities.
Braunschweig has an international reputation as a city
of research. The high density of national and
international companies and scientific research
institutes located in and around the city make
Braunschweig the most active research and
development region in all of Europe.
