  • 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.
