Support for foundersStudents can attend the lecture series on setting up and running a business as part of their key skills and incorporate what they have learned in their studies. TUC has a regular founders meeting and a founders forum. Interested students also receive support and advice from the TUC start-up service, which is expertly provided by the “Stabsstelle Technologietransfer und Forschungsförderung” (Technology transfer and research support staff unit). Successes include an EXIST Business Start-up Grant for TU Clausthal Informatics graduates in 2016 and a business start-up in 2017.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsInformatics at TU Clausthal is open to students who have disabilities or health impairments. It cooperates with the Academic Service Centre on providing individual advice and unbureaucratically finding solutions. Special provisions are made, e.g. for students who have hearing impairment.
Characteristics of diversity advancementInformatics at TU Clausthal cooperates with the Centre for Teaching and Learning and Quality Management in Higher Education on developing teaching and learning scenarios with the aim of raising diversity in higher education and better meeting the individual needs of students. Services include individual advice and coaching. The increasingly heterogeneous student body is discussed together with the teaching staff, tutors and students and accounted for in teaching, including through special group work in practical exercises and additional tutorials.
Other special featuresClausthal Computer Science cooperates with the study centre on the course guidance and coaching project for long-term students, since it is aimed at students who – for individual reasons – study beyond the standard period of study. Clausthal Computer Science is also involved in the ‘Wegbereiter’ (trailblazer) project of the study centre, which offers individualised guidance and open-ended coaching for students who develop doubts about their studies/dropouts.
