Special features regarding teachingBuilding knowledge, ability to apply soft skills practically (team and communication skills, presentations, language skills) for professional activities in Business Informatics; Distinct practice orientation through teachers who have a lot of practical experience and good contacts with industry; Up-to-date teaching through research projects with universities and industry partners; Students/teachers can spend a semester abroad thanks to partnerships with over 100 partner universities worldwide; Close contact with Business Informatics associations
Special features regarding the international orientationBased on a strategy rooted in the Faculty, the objective is defined as follows: Making the Faculty attractive for international students through English-taught courses, while boosting the image and prospects for graduates in the international job market; Recruiting regionally rooted students with few language skills but good subject-specific skills; Cooperation with international universities through various programmes; Two professors of the Faculty are responsible for the operational implementation of this strategy in close coordination with the Academic-International Office.

Special features regarding the equipmentEach module comprises a lab practical in small groups. Each student is given access to technical equipment of the latest generation (e.g. PCs, software, instrumentation, drives, controllers). The Faculty deems this modern equipment extremely relevant in order to deploy graduates on the job market and continuously invests to keep the infrastructure up-to-date. The central library is located in the same building and also provides online access to all relevant databases.
Special features regarding research and development“Electrical and Electronic and Information Engineering” is one of the strongest research faculties of the entire university. The large number and scope of the current research projects are unique compared to other faculties. Annual six-digit third-party funds per professor are not the exception, but rather the rule. The focus is on direct industry contracts as well as publicly awarded projects. The direct impact of research findings on teaching ensures the graduates’ technical relevance and the future generation of researchers.

Support for foundersThe university has numerous initiatives for prospective entrepreneurs: e.g. “AC.E – Initiative for Prospective Student Entrepreneurs”, “EXIST Entrepreneurship Grant”, “Entrepreneurship Consulting”, “Entrepreneurship Region AC^2”, “Student Entrepreneurship Programme TRACE”. These services are explained to each prospective student entrepreneur of the Faculty, with recommendations for appropriate programmes. Several successful start-ups in the past confirm the success of this centralised strategy.
Characteristics of assistance to differently abled personsThe aim of proper support is to compensate for impairment through appropriate aid to the highest extent possible. The arrangement indicated in each case is specified in close coordination with all committees involved (e.g. equality representative, examinations office, etc.) on the basis of medical recommendations. This may involve a student supervisor, individual time extensions for exams or the issuing of lift keys.
Characteristics of diversity advancementThe Diversity Day event of the Aachen University of Applied Sciences, staged in the foyer of the “Electrical and Electronic and Information Engineering” Faculty, demonstrates clearly the significance that the Faculty attaches to diversity. The heterogeneous composition of students and staff members with respect to origin, age, gender or health is a clear strength of the Faculty and thus of interest to it.
Other special featuresBusiness Informatics is among the newer subjects. It is increasing in importance for companies as a result of digitalisation. The programme deals with the interfaces between computer science and business administration. The business informatics engineer we train can look forward to a variety of career opportunities, such as in logistics, production or marketing. They are also optimally qualified as entrepreneurs as well as for the development and implementation of digital business models.
