      • Special features regarding the equipment
        Labs for: Manufacturing Engineering/Procedures; Machines lab; Production Engineering; Building Component Testing; Materials Engineering; Three CAX pools; Technical Thermodynamics and Refrigeration Engineering; Fluid Dynamics and Fluid Engineering Machines; Pollution Control Engineering; Combustion Technology; Radiation Engineering; Energy Engineering lab; Practicals are supported by highly qualified laboratory technicians; Modern, well-equipped lecture theatres and seminar rooms.
      • Other special features
        The faculty offers courses of study leading to a Diplom in Energy and Environmental Engineering as well as Mechanical Engineering. It is also possible to graduate with integrated professional training (KIA - co-operative engineering training) In the KIA degree course in Mechanical Engineering, the Bachelor's degree can also be obtained. Mechanical Engineering is involved in the cross-faculty degree courses in Industrial Engineering and Mechatronics.

Optical, quantum optical, atomic, molecular and plasma physics
Solid-state and materials physics
Astrophysics and astronomy
Surface physics and nanostructures
Particle physics
Statistical, chemical and polymer physics, biophysics, nonlinear dynamics
Legend: (S)=Students judgements; (F)=Facts; (P)=Professors judgements
(ME)= Mechanical Engineering (I)= very interdisciplinary and thus not classified
As the ranking is done for the whole subject area, for the single "sub-subjects" it can happen that not all rank groups are represented in all criteria.
