Special features regarding teachingWhere teaching is concerned, we place great emphasis on a practical education at the interface between technology and business. Our students are optimally prepared for their future careers, e.g. technical problems are investigated in cooperation with companies or operational decision-making processes are simulated. With numerous options, students are able to set individual specialities in the course of their studies. High-quality laboratories enable them to have a modern, agile and creative learning environment.
Special features regarding the international orientationStudents can draw on a broad basis of existing collaborations 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 also attach great importance to preparing students for the global job market, for example through English-language seminars such as Intercultural Communication and Competence, Negotiating Skills and Business English.
Special features regarding the equipmentIn 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 developmentResearch and development projects are partly financed directly from industry or through public third-party funding. 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 foundersEntrepreneurship is an integral part of the curriculum; Entrepreneurial impulses are promoted and in some cases accompanied individually by professors. Sometimes IBT professors serve in advisory positions for start-ups. The transfer agency of the Münster University of Applied Sciences offers students preparatory and support offers for possible professional independence and later company formation, for example through a start-up coach and in close cooperation with business development agencies, chambers and other partners in the regional start-up networks.
Other special featuresThe 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. Respect for the diversity of employees and students demonstrates the university’s success. Experience shows that personal and cultural diversity is for the benefit of all: differentiated perspectives in problem solving, research and development bring successful and sustainable results.
