Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsStudents with disabilities may complete examinations after the deadlines set in the examination regulations or complete equivalent assessments in a different form. The students to whom this applies can apply for an extension of the time allowed for examinations. The examination board of the relevant degree programme decides on these applications. The universities have accessible architecture (elevators, accessible premises and accessible sanitary facilities). The disability officer is the representative for matters relating to disabled people.
Characteristics of diversity advancementBridging courses in Mathematics and Programming are offered in the early stages of studying to compensate for differences in students’ prior qualifications. Especially at the beginning of their studies and/or if students have poor results, they also receive individual guidance from professors, staff members and students from higher semesters. In laboratories, the lab groups are put together to include members with and without prior vocational training.
Other special featuresThe Computer Science degree courses at the Hochschule Offenburg are characterised by a special relation to practice. The almost 40 different practicals in areas such as Web Technology, Cloud Computing, Enterprise Applications, Embedded Systems, Mobile Computing, Big Data Analytics or Parallel Programming are closely linked with the theoretical courses and qualify students to actively master innovative technologies. Application-oriented projects and work placements complete the profile and are the basis for a high level of acceptance of the courses by industry.
