Special features regarding teachingThe hybrid character of this qualification can be seen in several ways, for instance, through its relation to technology, economics and internationalism. In this sense, from the start there is a thematic focus on those areas of particular relevance from a professional perspective. The lectures developed for this purpose are tailored precisely to this target group. Finally, a multitude of activities aim to expand on the international character of the course. 93% of all final theses are held directly at companies or as student consultancy projects.
Special features regarding the international orientationIn this context, the European Projects semester, carried out for ten years, bears mentioning. In this project-based course, a multinational student team works on an industry project (supervised by an academic supervisor). This programme is a 30 ECTS course and is accompanied by a large number of secondary courses that deal with specific hard and soft skills. The Faculty has been a successful participant in syndicated internationalisation projects (CDHAW, MDHK, IGHE) with dual-degree programmes for years.
Special features regarding the equipmentThanks to the programme’s integration into the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the programmes of Mechanical Engineering and Shipbuilding, comprehensive and unrestricted access to various laboratories (e.g. machine tools, robotics, flow laboratory, CAD) is ensured. The synergies generated are also ensured in connection with the availability of subject-specific databases.
Special features regarding research and developmentThe overlap experienced by students on this degree course of economic, technical and international problem areas forms the basis for a wide variety of research questions. The following areas have, thus far, been of particular interest: cross-cultural aspects in International Technical Project Management (Cross-cultural Engineering); International Procurement Strategies, specifically in the field of SMEs.
Support for foundersThis topic is integrated explicitly into various courses (e.g. Innovation Management) and projects. Each semester, students can also consolidate their expertise and skills in this field systematically during the Interdisciplinary Week (cf. https://ida.fh-kiel.de/). For the specific realisation of start-ups, the Faculty has a partner, the Research and Development Centre, that provides professional support to students in the implementation of such projects.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsIt is integrated explicitly under this label in various ways.
Characteristics of diversity advancementPart of the university’s mission statement and thus of the faculty. Specifically: Our university practises diversity. Our education is gender-appropriate, cross-cultural and free of discrimination. This means: Practised diversity is a quality feature of our university and includes a diversity of disciplines, cultures, nationalities as well as teaching and learning methods that we deem enriching and therefore cultivate. Diversity requires the university to adopt and respect different perspectives. Gender-appropriate teaching/research is an integral part of the university.
