Special features regarding teachingAcademic training with relation to practice; Broad-based component in economic sciences adapted for SMEs, individual specialisations in the technical part. Individual study progress design made possible by many detailed lecture notes (study books, suitable for self-study), advice and organisation in case of time extension in “flexible studies” and option for an additional practical semester. Extensive lab equipment, courses in small groups, thus plenty of opportunity for personal contact with teachers.
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. Since small and medium-sized companies are often not able to operate adequate research and development facilities, the university makes a vital contribution to the development of the region by acting as a "research laboratory" for these companies. In addition, the research serves the purpose of continuously updating the curriculum and provides interesting fields of work for the students as within the framework 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 courses on entrepreneurship, brainstorming workshops are offered regularly where students develop their own business ideas, and there is the Co-Working Space entrepreneurs’ lab, which students can utilise for entrepreneurial and innovation projects.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsDisabled and chronically ill students can seek advice from a member of the Student Affairs Centre of the university administration. The scope of advice includes, for example, the structural and technical conditions, leaves of absence, examination conditions and examination conditions and disadvantage compensation. For students with chronic illness or a disability, the examination committee defines the examinations conditions of the student upon request taking into account the regulations regarding disadvantage compensation and the merits of the individual case.
Other special featuresThe inter-disciplinary degree courses in Industrial Engineering/Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Electrical Engineering and the degree courses in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Economics are of equal importance for the department, Which is why these students are just as well advised and supported as the other students. Individual guidance for students from the Career Centre and assistant professors; Coordinated course and exam timetables for all courses of study.
