Special features regarding teachingStudy books are offered for a large number of modules; Scientific training with practical relevance; Economics part broadly designed to qualify for work in medium-sized companies; intensive use of new forms of teaching and learning, portfolio exams, small groups, interdisciplinary modules, internships and semesters abroad; theory semester, interdisciplinary content; broad focus on professional competence, methodological competence, self and social competence.
Special features regarding the international orientationFor many years, there has been active collaboration with the Wellington Institute of Technology (Weltec) and Victoria University of Wellington (NZ) with regular work placements abroad, practical semesters, lecturer stays and studies abroad. As a result of the universal German-language courses, international exchange is generally characterised more by study visits abroad by students at the university rather than by visits from international students.
Special features regarding the equipmentTeaching and learning take place in pleasant new or very well renovated buildings. The equipment in all seminar rooms and lecture theatres permits the use of various media (projectors, screens, whiteboards). The laboratories include state-of-the-art technology. Several PC pool rooms are available to students. The university buildings are equipped with WiFi. Numerous study areas in the library and in the hallways. The library offers access to extensive literature, such as through an online library network (DigiBib).
Special features regarding research and developmentThe profile of the university is characterised by strong practical relevance as well as close collaboration with industry and other partners. The university often acts as a "research laboratory" for small and medium-sized companies, which often do not have their own research and development department. Publicly funded research projects are also processed. Research serves to continuously update the range of courses and offers interesting fields of activity for students in the context of projects and theses.
Support for foundersIn the Entrepreneurship professorship, the Faculty has an institutionally anchored contact point that ensures the curricular integration of entrepreneurship-oriented modules and extracurricular awareness for supporting start-ups and innovation projects. There are events on the subject of start-ups, business idea workshops are offered at regular intervals, in which students can develop their own business ideas, and there is also a co-working space with the founding laboratory, which is run by students Can be used for start-up and innovation projects.
Other special featuresMany students receive scholarships, many in the cooperative model (scholarship coupled with work in the company during the semester break); individual advice to students through career centres and lecturers; coordinated schedule of hours and exams for all courses. The department encompasses both Economics and Engineering, which promotes interdisciplinary teaching and research (example: Technology - Environment - Economy).
