  • Special features regarding teaching
    Annual design competition as part of the Development Methods lectures in cooperation with industrial companies – teams work on a practice-related topic from industry with tight deadlines. The teams' performance is assessed by the companies and the university. Participation in the ChemCar competition for designing a model vehicle that is driven by one or several (bio)chemical reactions. Successful participation in the chemPLANT competition. Interdisciplinary Project TUCreate practice project (mechanical engineering/computer science).
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    In summer semester of 2021, the proportion of foreign students in the department was approx. 50%. The students came from 49 different countries. There are over 50 international collaborations within the department as part of the Erasmus programme and a further 10 international collaborations outside of the Erasmus programme.
  • Special features regarding the equipment

  • Special features regarding research activities
    Strong networking of the professors of the department with Clausthal-based research centres. This also enables project work and final theses to be carried out, and students can work on various research areas (energy, environmental engineering, materials engineering) in the research centres.
  • Support for founders
    The Centre for Technology Transfer and Research Promotion of TU Clausthal provides a start-up service, which includes support and advice on relevant issues
  • Other special features
    The TU Clausthal offers a number of activities "by students for students"; the mechanical engineering, process engineering and chemical engineering student body, for example, organises Office and Latext courses every semester, which is financing from study quality resources. For more than 10 years, the student body has also been running a material library for DIN A3 drawing boards every semester, which are used in the Technical Drawing module for example. University sports at the TU Clausthal enjoys an excellent reputation with students, which regularly surveys confirm.
