Special features regarding teachingProject and research-oriented teaching even in the bachelor's degree: e.g. through the PROMOTE project in which several Chairs collaborate to offer project topics with academic supervision, which are then worked on by interdisciplinary teams with members from different stages of their academic studies. When completing their work, students are involved in current research projects. This is supported by a quality assurance concept for instruction, which provides for regular information-sharing and ideas in the academic affairs committee and faculty council in order to improve instruction. The Deps. Of MSF and IEF have an equal share in teaching.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe department is part of the EMship Consortium in the field of maritime systems. The phases of the compulsory elective modules offer students in almost all degree courses the option of spending part of the course abroad without needing to extend the length of the course. Teaching and learning agreements are concluded in advance for this purpose. Foreign work placements can also be recognised for the compulsory placements. Students are supported by the Erasmus officers. Modules held in English. Exchange as part of the DAAD Eastern Partnerships.

Other special featuresThe work placement office at the faculty is available to answer any questions regarding industry work placements. Other advantages: Close proximity to the library, student halls of residence and refectory; an extensive sports programme with over 70 sports at low cost; and, given the proximity to the sea, you also have the possibility of obtaining a sailing or surfing certificate. Last but not least, one particular advantage should be highlighted again: namely that the faculty is one of a total of 9 faculties at Universität Rostock, which means an interdisciplinary approach is possible for all teaching and research.
