Special features regarding teachingThe inter-disciplinary teaching concept, the promotion of a solid knowledge base gained as well as broad methodological skills give the students qualifications for both the present and future. As a result, the graduates are in a position to face trends and changes effectively and to develop sustainable solutions. In many courses, students have the opportunity to gain insights into the current state of research and issues relating to specific areas. This forms the basis for the final thesis, analysing the current state of research in a critical manner.
