  • Special features regarding teaching
    The department has a broad study portfolio based on classical education in engineering and the natural sciences in which further development of new offers is based on the principle of sustainability. Courses are measured against economic needs and the socially necessary requirements; This is offered in the interest of training students for career opportunities. The KOMPASS orientation semester makes it easier to get started. We attach great importance to a cooperative and dialogue-oriented teaching and learning environment in small groups.
