  • Special features regarding teaching
    Experienced professors and assistant professors manage the modules, the lecture forms of learning are individually structured by the teachers based on the specific needs. In addition to pure teaching of knowledge in lectures, there is also practical implementation of the acquired knowledge in exercise classes and project groups. Many of the learning methods also teach key qualifications. Thus, in project groups, a key learning objective is the ability to work in a team and ability to structure complex tasks. In the lectures, students work partly in group work and seminar work.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
