Special features regarding teachingTeaching at the HS Schmalkalden is characterised by intensive, individual student support, dedicated teaching staff, a mature curriculum and a strong focus on practice. All instruction is in-classroom, in modern and generously equipped laboratories, seminar rooms and lecture halls. Practical laboratory work and laboratory demonstrations are integrated into the course from the very first semester. The conditions are ideal for gaining early entry to a career as an engineer. 95% of graduates receive a permanent position in the private sector right after their studies.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe faculty for Mechanical Engineering has more than 20 laboratories where Engineering training and research can be carried out at the highest level. Particularly worthy of mention are the well-equipped computer lab with rapid prototyping system, the laboratory for combustion power machines with gas turbine system and diesel engine test bench, the Plastics Laboratory with several experimental injection moulding machines, the newly designed Laboratory for Renewable Raw Materials or the Laboratory for Robotics and Automation Engineering with several industrial robots.
Special features regarding research and developmentResearch and transfer effort in the Mechanical Engineering Department currently focus on five key areas: Angew. Kunststofftechnik, Robotertechnik, Rapid-Fertigungstechnologien u. Produktentwicklung, Material-und Oberflächentechnik and Werkzeug/Formenbau. Master's students can prepare their project work in the research team. The laboratories also offer foreign guest students the possibility of academic project work. Students of the Mechatronics & Robotics degree programme also benefit from the joint use of electrical engineering laboratories.
Support for foundersA close cooperation with the technology and start-up centre Schmalkalden has been in place for several years. The TGF offers, among other things, premises and advice on start-up financing for start-ups. The Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences integrates advisory offers and expertise into courses (e.g. business start-up/financing).
