  • Special features regarding teaching
    The teaching staff offer personal support and assistance in identifying and solving technical problems. This is made possible by small group sizes and a strong practical orientation. With these areas of specialisation, students can create their individual focus areas and systematically qualify for the designated professional fields. The high percentage of English-language courses optimally prepares students for an international career. The degree course combines the fundamentals of engineering with expertise in materials and sustainability.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The degree course maintains close links with numerous partner universities around the world and supports students in the organisation of semesters abroad and the recognition of credits earned abroad. The practical semester and the bachelor's thesis can also be completed at foreign companies, and the relevant contacts to interesting industrial partners are in place. This field is also of great interest for foreign students and experts. A foreign PhD student has just successfully completed their degree in the field of plasma technology.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The degree course has excellent, state-of-the-art equipment in its laboratories which allows students to work with innovative technologies. The chemical and materials laboratories are currently being refitted. There is modern equipment available for plasma technology, surface analysis and additive manufacturing. The state-of-the-art laboratory environment is ideal for innovative material developments in research or as part of a doctorate.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The current key research areas are in plasma technology, smart textiles and additive manufacturing (production of hybrid components). The degree programme does joint research with other departments, such as in order to integrate their own research topics into Industry 4 scenarios. In the ‘Smart Material’ project (funded by the Carl Zeiss Foundation), the study area develops intelligent functional materials which enable active temperature and moisture regulation in textiles and thus optimise the microclimate and wearing comfort.
  • Support for founders
    The focus on entrepreneurship ensures a continuous and rich array of events, such as elevator pitches, start-up nights, etc. Student projects are funded by Start2Research. Close links with industry and joint research and development projects means that students are actively accompanied and supported by professors and 2 start-up managers from the university, from the initial idea to the foundation of the company. The local infrastructure is excellent and includes the technology workshop in Albstadt and the Innocamp in Sigmaringen as partners.
  • Other special features
    Students of this course receive very personal and comprehensive support. Our students benefit from small group sizes and highly practice-oriented specialist training. Over the course of their degree students look at the entire process chain and are shown how material-specific properties can be integrated into innovative components and sustainable products and processes using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. Graduates can work in an extremely diverse range of occupational fields and their career prospects are excellent.
