Special features regarding teachingIntensive basic training; team projects, one also directly in a company; training in two faculties (Computer Science and Economics); cooperation with Business Economists and IT specialists; strong practical orientation through industrial cooperation, especially in the automotive sector; research proximity through third-party funded projects, through which students are also involved in current research topics (e.g. in IT Security, Business Intelligence, Supply Chain Management, Cloud Computing); orientation days, learning coaching, language centre, selection from many optional subjects possible
Special features regarding the international orientationThere are very many partner universities worldwide. First, a determination is made on how credits obtained abroad can be recognised. Each year the Computer Science department organises an international summer university with alternating topics, sometimes also involving data analysis. Student excursions abroad are offered, for example to Brazil, France, Japan and the USA. The Ostfalia International Office supports students who wish to complete a semester abroad, e.g., on funding or finding accommodation.
Exchange universities for stay abroadsUniversidad de Santa Cruz do Sul (UNISC), Brasilien; Zhejiang University of Science and Technology in Hangzhou, China; University of the West of Scotland, Großbritannien; Swiss German University, Indonesien; Anan National College of Technology, Japan; The University of Manitoba, Kanada; Namibia University of Science and Technology, Namibia; University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha, USA.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe Ostfalia Faculty of Computer Science has a total of 15 well-equipped pools or labs, in which the students can both carry out supervised exercises and work independently, partly even at weekends. The Ostfalia library provides access to over 50 electronic databases in the fields of computer science or economic sciences. Online learning systems in mathematics, programming/software engineering and databases (SQL) are provided.
Special features regarding research and developmentThe Department of Information Engineering has bundled a number of third-party-funded projects (e.g. on Business Intelligence and IT Security), which connect students also to current research topics. The key research area "SecuRIn – Security Reference Model Industry 4.0", funded by the Lower-Saxony Ministry for Science and Culture, aims to develop process models that will help companies to develop Industry 4.0 applications easily and reliably in future and to operate them safely during the entire life cycle.
Support for foundersThe Ostfalia Entrepreneurship Centre offers seminars on start-ups and individual advice, such as on financing.
Other special featuresA logistics lab is available where students work on various problems in connection with the automation of logistics systems (materials handling). The system (based on Lego Mindstorms) is used in various courses as a basis for case studies (X-in-the-Loop, planning a control system with connection to an ERP system, emulation for performance evaluation of systems). In addition, students work on the implementation of a web-based business simulation (SIM-HAVEN) in cooperation with the Department of Transport-Sport-Tourism-Media.
