Special features regarding teachingOur courses combine a general and specific compulsory programme with a large number of individual elective options. The specific content, such as Strategic IT Management and Business Process Optimisation, can be consolidated on the basis of solid methodological skills. The further the study progresses, the more options students have to choose their own specialisations. At the same time, number of practical projects increases through the course of the studies. This ensures the acquisition of skills in a timely and practical manner as well as the establishment of contacts to companies.
Special features regarding the international orientationThere are numerous international contacts in the faculty. The newly established programmes in Business Informatics benefit particularly from the experience of the Bachelor's degree in International Business Administration and the Master's degree in International Marketing & Sales with their strong English-language offers that attract many students from abroad, especially from the numerous partner universities. These partnerships thrive on constant exchange, especially in the form of visits and guest stays. Joint projects with international companies are also carried out.
Exchange universities for stay abroadsESC Clermont-Ferrand, Frankreich; Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexiko; KOREA Tech, Südkorea; East Stroudsburg University, USA; Universidade do Estado de Santa Catarina, Brasilien; NTNU, Norwegen; Jönköping University, Schweden; Cork Institute of Technology, Irland; Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences, Finnland.
Special features regarding the equipmentOur faculty offers a variety of courses with different requirements. This creates a wide range of possibilities in terms of technical equipment and subject-specific databases. As concerns technical equipment, we also benefit from the possibilities of the technical departments, particularly Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. Our technical equipment meets modern requirements and our databases up-to-date, well maintained and comprehensive. Open study and project spaces complement modern computer pools, and there is also a CP factory (Industry 4.0).
Special features regarding research and developmentWe are part of the most research intensive university of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg and are active in cross-departmental research projects connected with industrial cooperation. We have great competence in quantitative and qualitative empirical research methods. In our research, the most modern methods for analysing large amounts of data (data science, Big Data, machine learning) are used, e.g. in foundry technology, medical diagnostics, material technology (non-destructive testing, material microscopy), failure forecasting (predictive maintenance) and battery research.
Support for foundersTo promote entrepreneurial spirit, the Aalen University has implemented its own programme (GuStL). In the faculty, all students benefit from the experience of small and medium-sized companies in the field of business start-ups. In practical terms, we promote start-ups together with the technical departments of the university and have developed the joint Master's in Business Development especially for entrepreneurial students. Together with our innovation centre and the AAcelerator of our region, we offer student start-ups space, equipment and advice for a successful start.
Other special featuresWe conduct our own selection processes for our courses and, as a faculty, deliberately emphasize the selection of applicants. Our focus is on (future) students. This is why we invest in student support and make time for students. This is borne out by a large number of tutorials, exercises and small group sizes.
