Welcome to the Institute of Transportation Design

The Institute of Transportation Design (ITD) is concerned with the future of mobility. In June 2007, it emerged from the department of “Transportation Design & Social Sciences” established in 2002 at Braunschweig University of Art.  Our approach to teaching and research extends far beyond issues pertaining to the design of means of transportation only to also involve the design of mobility services as well as research on new mobility systems.
