About TU Braunschweig
The TU Braunschweig is considered the oldest technical university in Germany. It is one of the nine leading technical universities in Germany, organized in the TU9 association.
Currently, more than 20,000 students are studying in 75 degree programs at the university. More than 2,150 scientists, including 230 professors, teach and conduct research primarily in the fields of engineering and natural sciences. Study programs and courses in the social sciences, humanities and economics complement the range of courses and research.
Design and Concept
The corporate design of the TU Braunschweig is unusual. The color scheme is lively, versatile, structured and clear. It thus reflects humanity, diversity and technology. In addition to the primary colors red, black and white, 12 secondary colors create a varied and independent color climate.
This concept had to be projected onto the Internet. The result was a varied Internet presence that provides variety and excitement through its variety of color combinations and modules.
