  • Special features regarding teaching
    One special feature of the Mechanical Engineering degree course is its structure as an 8-semester Diplom degree course with one full practical semester. The selected structure of the three-semester stage I studies followed by three specialisations offers students an additional orientation phase and a specialisation in line with personal interests. The practical semester as well as the 4-month Diplom project are other unique features which give students in-depth insight into professional practice.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The degree course has a weak international focus owing to the available resources and demand. Greater openness and internationalisation is part of the faculty development plan and is one of the challenges for the near future. The first pilot projects have started; worthy of mention is the cooperation with the Mexican Tec de Monterrey.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The faculty's technical equipment is higher than average and is praised by colleagues from other higher education institutions as well as industrial partners. In addition to a large number of machines, other highlights include the well-equipped laboratories and technical rooms. Listing all of the different equipment would go beyond the scope of this description. Please see the faculty's website which provides a partial list of the existing equipment.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The wide range of current research projects makes it very difficult to select and describe just a few. The university research information system offers a good overview. The annual research reports provide an overview of the numerous research projects. Research focuses on the fields of Production Engineering, Ergonomics, Textile Engineering, Materials Engineering, Construction Engineering and Tribology. The acquired third-party funds amount to significantly more than EUR 1 million/year.
  • Other special features
    Students of the faculty represent a large portion of the members of the student racing team which has been participating with great success in the international Formula Student competition for more than 10 years (see http://www.whz-racingteam.de/aktuelles/). In addition to technical specialisation, this encourages an interdisciplinary approach, the ability to work in a team and internationalisation.

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.
