  • Special features regarding teaching
    The initial study phase of the degree course makes it possible for students to become familiar with all of the degree courses offered in the department. Projects that span degree courses exist both for first semester students and for later semesters. The mutual eligibility of the basic subjects for recognition is guaranteed across all degree courses. There is also a high level of flexibility for mutual recognition of optional required subjects; it is also possible for compulsory subjects from other degree courses to be recognised as optional required subjects. There is a high proportion of practical laboratory exercises in all degree courses.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Helsinki, Finnland
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Overall, very good laboratory equipment; five interdisciplinary complex laboratories (physics, materials, metrology, electrical engineering, computer science) and 20 course-specific laboratories; use of laboratories outside of courses within the framework of project studies is possible and desirable.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    In recent years, the faculty has been one of the two faculties in the university with the third highest level of funding. The ratio of professors involved in research is high. Since May 2018, there has been a Research School at the faculty, which serves in particular to network the academic mid-level staff and the professoriate, but is also intended to increase the visibility of research at the faculty to the outside world.
  • Support for founders
    The HTW offers modules on the topic of "Entrepreneurship" as supplementary subjects. Business start-ups are also supported by a wide range of workshops, advice from the HTW's Start-Up Competence Centre, a prototyping workshop and a summer university programme on this topic. In the BIT6 network of six Berlin universities of applied sciences, the HTW supports the exchange between science and practice through innovative measures such as the start-up centre for newly set up companies or the "Transfermobil" service.
  • Other special features
    The department is integrated in the largest of Berlin's universities of applied sciences with a wide range of courses from technology, economics and computer science to design and culture, offering many unusual opportunities for interdisciplinary studies. The department is located at the Wilhelminenhof Campus in Oberschöneweide in the district of Treptow-Köpenick in the southeast of Berlin and is situated directly on the Spree River on a former industrial site steeped in history.
