Special features regarding teachingLectures are conducted in a seminar style, and examples from practice play a large role within this. In the laboratory practicals, lecture material is applied. Individual supervision is provided both for individual and group exercises. Team projects allow students to take on responsibility for specific task areas and allow the practical application of specialised and project management methods. In addition to Computer Science-related contents, methods of scientific work, principles of Business Administration and English as well as presentation techniques are taught.
Special features regarding the international orientationThe degree course in Smart Automation is part of the Chinese-German University of Applied Sciences. Through the specialisation in Mechatronics, incoming and outgoing students can acquire a dual degree course with Tongji University in Shanghai. This takes place through a one-year stay abroad in the respective host country. In the first semester technical skills are acquired and in the second semester the Bachelor's work placement is completed or the Bachelor's thesis written.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe laboratories are equipped with modern equipment and are kept up to date. The laboratory for industrial robotics has three networked IIWA robots and is fitted with a system for process engineering and a fully automatic filling system for production and process control technology. Modern IT systems are available in the control room. The adjacent XR laboratory has equipment for virtual reality, augmented reality and additive manufacturing processes. In the field of renewable energies, there is a virtual power station for wind energy, solar thermal energy and photovoltaics, biomass and energy storage.
Special features regarding research and developmentThrough the teachers of the degree course, a number of application-oriented research and development projects are carried out, usually with companies (e.g. Energy Efficiency, Environmental Engineering, Ambient Assisted Living); Students can participate as academic assistants or in team projects; Laboratory equipment of the research and development projects is also used in teaching; Support for students' research and development work as preparation for business start-ups.
