Special features regarding teachingA key characteristic is the close integration of theoretical training in lectures with practical training in laboratories. This integration is provided for each technical course. The lecture theatres, which are well-equipped with media technology and the labs, which are well-equipped with practical-oriented devices and systems, together with the university's extensively used e-learning system and other online offerings such as the Virtual Lab, provide a sound teaching foundation. Projects are encouraged during the laboratories especially in the Master's, but also in the Bachelor's degree course.
