  • Support for founders
    The university supports company start-ups as part of the Gründer Stall service. There is no separate programme for the automotive engineering faculty, but students can take part in the general programme.
  • Other special features
    This is an ideal environment for the students thanks to the development departments of major OEMs and suppliers. We have a Career Centre which helps students look for work placements and positions for final theses. Close contact through lively exchange of information and an active industrial advisory board ensure that the teaching content is completely up-to-date. There is continuous adaptation to future requirements, e.g. electrical drives or new assistance systems. We have an active Formula Student racing team which is very successful and many faculties take part.

(ME)= Mechanical Engineering (IntDiscip)= 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.
