  • Special features regarding teaching
    Course records are available for a variety of modules. For each semester, the laboratory and practical training courses are individually designed so that students can complete their courses and modules at any time. This prevents a delay in the schedule of studies. The laboratory equipment is also extensive and lectures are held in small groups. This allows instruction to be carried out in a seminar style with accompanying tutorials. This ensures high practical relevance and motivates the students.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    For many years, there has been active collaboration with the Wellington Institute of Technology (Weltec) and Victoria University of Wellington (NZ) with regular work placements abroad, practical semesters, lecturer stays and studies abroad. As a result of the universal German-language courses, international exchange is generally characterised more by study visits abroad by students at the university rather than by visits from international students.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The lecture theatres, seminar rooms, computer rooms and laboratories are state-of-the-art and are kept continuously up-to-date. In the library and corridors there are many study areas available and it is possible to work alone in individual learning cells in the library where group work can also be carried out.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The profile of the university is characterised by strong practical relevance as well as close collaboration with industry and other partners. Since small and medium-sized companies are often not able to operate adequate research and development facilities, the university makes a vital contribution to the development of the region by acting as a "research laboratory" for these companies. In addition, the research serves the purpose of continuously updating the curriculum and provides interesting fields of work for the students as within the framework of projects and theses.
  • Support for founders
    The "Entrepreneurship SWF" initiative promotes entrepreneurship in rural areas of South Westphalia in order to flexibly meet the challenges of digitisation and demographic change. With the degree course in Entrepreneurship at the FH SWF as a foundation, the StartupLab SWF as an incubator and the Netzwerk Digitale Wirtschaft SWF as an accelerator, entrepreneurial competencies are systematically and comprehensively promoted and students, start-ups and medium-sized businesses in the region are matched with each other. All this is open to MB students and is used by them.
  • Other special features
    For the academic and non-academic staff, personnel development meetings take place once a year. The continuing education measures for the following year are discussed in this meeting. Tutor certification is carried out for tutors on a regular basis.

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.
