  • Special features regarding teaching
    Students benefit from small group sizes in the study specialisation modules and in the modules of the Master's degree course; Professors are not only available during office hours, but also after lectures; There is a great deal of flexibility to structure the degree course thanks to the option of studying without an area of specialisation; Students can accommodate their own interests better.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Research cooperation (international conferences, research visits and joint publications) with the University of Ghent (Belgium), HIT (China) and Shandong University (China); Consultant for internationally renowned journals (Wear, Microelectronics Reliability, IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices).
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Savonia University of Applied Sciences, Finnland; Universite des Lorraine, Frankreich; Universita degli Studi di Trieste, Italien; Windesheim University of Applied Schiences, Zwolle; University of Debrecen, Ungarn
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Special features of the department include: The (probably) oldest running diesel engine in the world (built in 1903) wind tunnel, research BHKW, 3D printer to create models from composite materials, 3D hand-held scanner to scan objects as large as a car, confocal microscope for optical measurement of surfaces, fuels laboratory, scanning electron microscope, x-ray fluorescence measurement device to determine material compositions, form modification analysis systems, atomic force microscope.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Research in the fields of "Electrical Connection Technology and Functional Surfaces"; Implementation of public (Federal Ministry of Education and Research, EU and North Rhine-Westphalia) and industry-funded research projects; "Symposium Connectors" conference which is aligned every two years by the department in collaboration with the VDE/VDI; Cooperative doctorates in cooperation with the RWTH Aachen and the TU Ilmenau; Research focus on Intelligent Energy Systems together with four other departments of the university
  • Support for founders
    The department does not offer any special support events, because the central services of the university are very extensive. In addition to cross-university services, students at the OWL University of Applied Sciences have access to the KNOWLEDGE Cube https://www.hs-owl.de/forschung-und-transfer/gruenderberatung/knowledgecube0.html
