  • Special features regarding teaching
    Generalist Bachelor's and Master's programme with four advanced study areas; Soft skills in special modules; Many final theses in cooperation with externals closely linked to practice; Organised initial study phase with orientation week; Tutorials in parallel throughout studies; Publisher of the design and calculation tables, Prof. Holschemacher, and other authors of the book about calculation tables teach at the faculty; Continuing education of teaching staff through the academic centre; Transition from the Bachelor's to the Master's degree course is flexible and uncomplicated.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Percentage of first semester students in the faculty is 42%, mostly from Austria and Asian countries. Contacts to many partner universities. Double degree programme with Spain. Collaborative doctorates with foreign universities Some lecturers have worked abroad for relatively long periods (including a multiple Fulbright scholarship holder). High level of participation in internat. conferences. International research projects. Vibrant Erasmus partnerships. Mentoring programme for foreign students. Compulsory elective modules in English.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Approx. 3,000 m² of laboratory space with environmental scanning electron microscope (value of approx. €250,000), image processing system with several microscopes and cameras, mercury intrusion porosimeter, CDF system for determining the freeze-thaw resistance, servo-hydraulic testing system with several control circuits and actuators up to 1 MN max. test force, electromechanical test machine with 600 kN max. test force, hydraulic test machine with 6,000 kN max. test force, sample height >4 m, servo-hydraulic building materials test machine with 5000 kN max. test force, photogrammetic industry measurement system.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    More than 70 research projects at present; More than 70 third-party-funded employees in research; 10 internal interdisciplinary institutes in the faculty; Annual third-party funding more than 2 million euros; Collaboration in the C³ Carbon Concrete Composite project (cooperative research project with the TU Dresden, etc.); Successful applications for FHprofUnt tenders and tenders of the DFG; Comprehensive research currently in Foundation Engineering/Geo-engineering, Concrete Construction, Energy-Efficient Building and Building Physics with Product Developments; Young research group on resource and substance conservation
  • Support for founders
    Company start-ups are supported centrally by the university.
  • Other special features
    The HTWK Leipzig does not consider itself a typical University of Applied Sciences. This is the result of its past as a university institution. In addition to teaching, the focus of the faculty is research and internationalisation. The technical equipment available in teaching and research is "very good" for a University of Applied Sciences (initial equipment approx. EUR 900,000). The university's focus is Engineering. In addition, the faculty scores points with the advantages of its location in Leipzig and a 250-year tradition.

(CE)= Civil Engineering (IntDiscip)= very interdisciplinary and thus not classified;
As the ranking is done for the whole subject area, for the single "sub-subjects" it can happen that not all rank groups are represented in all criteria.
