Support for foundersThe Kassel University is an entrepreneurs' university subsidised by EXIST funds. Teaching and support of start-ups is seen as an interdisciplinary task and supported, both in personnel and organisational terms, by the research and teaching centre on entrepreneurial thinking and action. Six subject areas of the department are active in the start-up research and teaching.
Other special featuresThe Faculty has established a joint guidance and coordination concept for all its degree courses. The profile formation of each WING student is supported in the technical area through the study progress plan and a personal consultation. A WING mailing list informs everyone about current topics. It also provides a wide range of WING-specific job postings or additional professionally qualifying services. Info sessions take place regularly. On the WING website, students have access to all materials, accompanied by an FAQ section.
