You will get there with Cottbus traffic engineering

The Berlin-Brandenburg region ensures mobility on the road, on rail and in the air. The capital city region is home to many suppliers to the automotive industry and, for the past few years, has been going at full throttle. In all this, the Cottbus region plays a significant role. Owing to the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) Cottbus commands specific know-how in the fields of research and development.
Aerospace technology and engineering, in particular, is one of the industries in the Federal State of Brandenburg with the greatest potential for the future. In future, Brandenburg will develop to become the third most important aerospace technology region in Germany. The Cottbus economic region is of strategic importance here, in particular because of the scientific potential it commands. With the Institute of Traffic Engineering at the Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus features an excellent partner for related industries. The institute provides joint research and development in the field of traffic engineering.
