Professor Dr. Angela Ittel was unanimously elected president of Technische Universität Braunschweig on 10 March 2021. Professor Ittel is currently vice president for strategic development, junior scholars, and teacher education at TU Berlin, a position she has held for a number of years. The Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture will appoint Professor Ittel as president after approving the Senate’s proposal.
“I would like to congratulate Angela Ittel and TU Braunschweig on this appointment on behalf of the Executive Board and our entire university. Angela has been vice president at TU Berlin for seven years. During this period, she has introduced a number of ideas and projects of great significance for internationalization and the advancement of junior scholars at our university. She has been highly active in her work for our University of Excellence within the Berlin University Alliance. She has also succeeded in strategically developing diversity, equal opportunity, and teacher education as well as DFG joint research projects. During her time here, Angela has developed an important and extensive network both for herself and our university, not only in Berlin but also with our many partners abroad. The successful application for the ENHANCE European University Network is just one of her many achievements. We wish Angela every happiness and success in her new position and very much hope that her vision proves as inspirational for her work in Braunschweig as here in Berlin. We look forward to continuing our work with her in the future, for example within the TU9 alliance,” said Professor Christian Thomsen, president of TU Berlin, in response to Professor Ittel’s appointment.
“My goal is to continue to strengthen TU Braunschweig so that it really stands out at regional, national and global level,” said Angela Ittel of her new position, which she is scheduled to commence in early summer. “Needless to say, this will be achieved together with all members of the university and with the close involvement of the various disciplines and partners.”
