  • Special features regarding teaching
    The curricula are skill-based and geared toward a defined graduate profile. The lecturers see themselves as student guides in their learning process and integrate project-based and research-based learning in their courses. Activating teaching methods and additional virtual teaching and learning environments foster the exchange between teachers and students and students among themselves. The (partly interdisciplinary) projects integrated in the curriculum as well as the final theses are often carried out in cooperation with companies.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The degrees prepare students for an increasingly international working environment. There are different possibilities to gain experience abroad (semester abroad, internships abroad, etc.) The TH Cologne and the faculty have various international cooperation partners. Students benefit in teaching and research from the personal international contacts of the professors and instructors.

  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Faculty-wide there are 55 laboratories available to conduct practicals as well as projects and research (including the necessary research by students for their degree theses). The Institute of Technical Building Equipment has a laboratory for fire detection technology, a laboratory for CFD simulation, a laboratory for chemistry and water analysis, a laboratory for electrical building equipment, a laboratory for burglar alarm and video technology, a laboratory for building automation and control technology, a laboratory for building systems technology.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The wide range of research activities is closely linked to teaching. Students are involved in research and innovation processes and in current issues from business and industry through project work. Student final theses can be written as part of ongoing research projects; Four completed cooperative doctorates in the years 2015-2017
  • Support for founders
    The TH Cologne is a member of the des Hochschulgründernetz Cologne e.V. start-up network (hgnc e.V.) and offers a variety of (network) events, workshops and competitions for students of the faculty. Various support associations help students in the form of company and graduate networking services. The TH Cologne also takes part in the nationwide "Gründerwoche Deutschland" campaign week.
  • Other special features
    The module structure and learning objectives of the degree courses were developed in the context of the graduate profile defined in curriculum workshops. The analysis of the professional fields by discipline-specific industries serves as a basis. The learning objectives and module contents are all aligned with one another and build on one another as the degree course advances. Ongoing assessment of integration of the courses across semesters ensures that skills are acquired.
