  • Special features regarding teaching
    Where teaching is concerned, we place great emphasis on a practical education at the interface between technology and business. Our students are prepared optimally for their future careers, e.g. technical problems are investigated in cooperation with companies or operational decision-making processes are simulated. Thanks to a variety of elective options, students can develop their own individual profiles of technical and business skills as well as soft skills.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Bachelor’s and Master’s students can rely on a broad range of existing partnerships with international universities. Many partnerships go through the ERASMUS exchange programme. Students are supported individually in the planning and organisation of their studies or work placements by the International Office of the Münster University of Applied Sciences and the department’s representative. We are also committed to preparing students for the global labour market, e.g. through English-taught seminars such as Intercultural Communication and Competence or Negotiating Skills.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    In technical labs, students are trained on current and high-quality machinery and equipment, like the ones used in real life. Students have access to full-coverage and free WiFi as well as PC pools. Numerous databases such as WISO, Statista, Perinorm (DIN, VDI), TEMA, Nexis, OECD iLibrary, lynda, Web of Science and video2brain assist in academic work. These databases provides services like statistics, e-learning, economic data and standards.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Some research and development projects are financed either directly by industry or by third parties of the public sector. Students have the option to participate actively in these projects. In project seminars, students working in small groups take on research responsibilities that they carry out directly with and at companies. This way, they can immediately apply what they have learnt and establish contacts with industry. At this time, the ITB is working on an international, cross-border research project with partners from academic and interdisciplinary institutions.

  • Support for founders
    Entrepreneurship is an integral part of the curriculum; Entrepreneurial activity is promoted and often supervised individually by professors. Sometimes IBT professors serve in advisory positions for start-ups. The transfer agency of the Münster University of Applied Sciences provides students with preparation and support for potential entrepreneurship and subsequent business start-ups. This is done in close cooperation with economic development agencies, chambers and other partners in regional entrepreneurial networks.
  • Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons
    We ensure equal opportunities for all students to guarantee their academic success. Students with chronic or mental illness or disabilities receive support from a liaison at the department and also centrally from the university. This includes, for example, individual advice (equalisation of disadvantages, etc.) and supervision, a regular pub meeting for networking and a newsletter. We consider individual requirements, e.g. where exams and practicals are concerned. Facilities provide barrier-free access thanks to ramps and lifts.
  • Characteristics of diversity advancement
    Respect for the diversity of employees and students demonstrates the university’s success. Experience shows that staff and cultural diversity benefits everyone: Differentiated perspectives in problem solving, research and development yield successful and sustainable results. We benefit from an innovative and creative atmosphere. The university and the ITB are open to all people – no matter how different they may be.
  • Other special features
    The department offers flexible study arrangements, based on individual requirements. Thus, students can pursue their studies full-time, but also by way of training- and career-integrated courses. This ensures a good university-work-life balance. The didactic focus on skills-based studying and learning, as pursued in Münster, is also a benefit for the diverse student body, as is the extensive range of advisory and support services.
