Special features regarding teachingHigh priority is given to dialogue-oriented teaching, which is why semesters are limited to 50 students. Tutorials are offered in the first semesters. Starting in the second semester in particular, accompanying laboratories and projects are offered alongside the lectures in order to prepare students for working in industry at an early stage. Standard industry software applications are also used from the very beginning. An interdisciplinary project that lasts for the duration of the entire final theory semester teaches team skills, project management and presentation skills.
Special features regarding the international orientationFor many years, the faculty has had intern. entered into a lot of partnerships. Double degree programmes have thus been introduced with leading universities in Mexico, China and Finland that our students can take without any fees. Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) are signed with 15 universities, e.g. in Singapore, India, USA, Turkey and the Ukraine, so that students can complete a semester of study there. In return, we offer a total of 50 credit points in English. The partnerships also thrive on, in particular, regular teacher exchange.
