  • Special features regarding teaching
    The course of study follows the concept “Learning culture, individual skills development for engineers – LiKe Ing”, for which the Faculty 10 has been recognised twice in a row with the “University Award Machine Hall” by the VDMA (2013 and 2015). The course of study is characterised by a skill-oriented curriculum, a project-oriented study structure and accompanying quality assurance measures. We ensure professional competence and equal opportunities in development through diversity- and skill-based teaching/learning arrangements.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Faculty of 10 of the Technical University in Cologne, on account of its Industrial Engineering, is a member of the university consortium with the Chinese-German University of Applied Sciences at the Tongji University, Shanghai. In this context, a dual degree is awarded to Bachelor in Industrial Engineering students (German BA students in the last year in Shanghai, Chinese BA students in the last year in Gummersbach).
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Technical equipment is state-of-the-art and is constantly updated.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Numerous research projects are centred at the Faculty for Computer Science and Engineering Sciences. Apart from the key research areas Software Quality (Computer Science) and COSA approved by the German Federal Ministry for Innovation, Science, Research and Technology (MIWFT), as well as the STEPS competence platform funded by the MIWFT, research and development comprises various partnerships with regional and national industry. 4 cooperative doctorates in the period 2013-2015.

  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    The framework examination regulations, adopted by the Senate of the Technical University of Cologne and which forms the basis for programme-specific regulations, require that disabled people or those with chronic illness must be able to take exams in modified formats, also regarding duration and scheduling, in order to compensate for disadvantages related to their disability or chronic illness. These regulations refer expressly also to exams as part of the admissions procedure.
  • Other special features
    All beginners in Engineering Sciences at the Gummersbach campus complete the basic study stage together. In this orientation phase, students can evaluate their personal aptitude and interests for the specialisation in the third semester – General Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Engineering or Electrical/Electronic Engineering. The study concept complies with the central VDI/IW recommendations through compulsory self-assessments, an intensive mentor programme and the integration of projects already during the initial study phase.
