  • Special features regarding teaching
    The initial study phase of the degree course makes it possible for students to become familiar with all of the degree courses offered in the department. Projects that span degree courses exist both for first semester students and for later semesters. The mutual eligibility of the basic subjects for recognition is guaranteed across all degree courses. In the mandatory elective area there is a high degree of variability when it comes to the recognition of mandatory elective subjects. The recognition of mandatory subjects from other courses is possible in the mandatory elective area. There is a high proportion of practical laboratory exercises in all degree courses.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Semesters abroad encouraged thanks to a "mobility semester" in which a high proportion or all of the courses offered are optional required subjects that can be replaced by credits from abroad. English-language courses on "Internationalisation at home" as part of the Horizon programme.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The laboratory exercises in Department 1 are carried out in a class ISO7 clean room (according to ISO 14644-1) in the Technology Laboratory as part of the degree course in Microsystems Engineering. Typical exercises are: vaporising, sputtering, photolithography masking in thin- and thick-lacquer technology, structuring through wet etching or electroforming, reactive ion etching, thermal oxidation, wafer bonding and KOH etching.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Close links with the Fraunhofer Institute of Reliability and Microintegration (IZM) and the TU Berlin. Good integration of student final theses and project work in ongoing research work.
  • Support for founders
    The HTW offers modules on the topic of "Entrepreneurship" as supplementary subjects. Business start-ups are also supported by a wide range of workshops, advice from the HTW's Start-Up Competence Centre, a prototyping workshop and a summer university programme on this topic. In the BIT6 network of six Berlin universities of applied sciences, the HTW supports the exchange between science and practice through innovative measures such as the start-up centre for newly set up companies or the "Transfermobil" service.
  • Other special features
    The department of electronics-related courses is integrated in the largest of Berlin's universities of applied sciences with a wide range of courses from technology, economics and computer science to design and culture, offering many unusual opportunities for interdisciplinary studies.
