UB Braunschweig / Dissertationsstelle

Thesis Office

The thesis office of the University Library Braunschweig is where the mandatory copies of all dissertations and habilitations of the Technische Universität Braunschweig are submitted. When all requirements are fulfilled, the office issues the document of confirmation needed for the doctoral certificate. The University Library also offers access to these theses and distributes them to other universities. You can submit your thesis at the Central Information Desk on the ground floor of the University Library from Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 18:30. You will be given a receipt on delivering your thesis. However, this document only confirms your submission and is not the document your department needs to draw up your doctoral certificate.

The thesis can also be submitted by post:

Universitätsbibliothek Braunschweig
Universitätsplatz 1
38106 Braunschweig

After your documents have been checked by the thesis office, the confirmation document is drawn up and sent to your department (usually on the next business day). You will receive a confirmation by email.

If you want to make an appointment to submit your thesis personally, please contact Mrs. Globisch by email to ub-diss@tu-braunschweig.de or by phone (0531 / 391-5024). Appointments can be set up between 9:00 and 12:00. When submitting your thesis personally, you will receive the document of confirmation immediately provided all requirements are met.

The submission regulations for mandatory copies are defined in the exam regulations (Promotionsordnungen) of the Faculties and in the so called Gemeinsame Habilitationsordnung.
These regulations are disseminated through the so called Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der TU Braunschweig und can also be found in the dean's office of the faculties.

All copies have to include a title page that fulfills the requirements of the annexes of the exam regulations precisely. The format requirements (DIN A4, DIN A5, etc.) are defined in the regulations of your department.
Additionally, the printed thesis should be printed double-sided on durable, wood- and acid-free paper (according to DIN ISO 9706) and has to be permanently bound (binding without metal staples, no spiral binding).
