Media Service/PR

The Department of Communications and Marketing of the BTU is the interface between the university and the public and provides target group-specific information on a wide range of subjects such as research, studies, technology transfer as well as university life. We do, however, also view ourselves as the first contact for anyone who has questions concerning the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg. The portfolio includes the following areas: on- and offline press and PR/media activities, research PR, social media, marketing, corporate design and internal communication.
