  • Special features regarding teaching
    In one of the most modern university campus buildings in Bavaria, practical teaching content is taught with the aid of award-winning (self-developed) media technology. Small groups for hard and soft skills as well as innovative teaching methods (e.g. coding nights, developer competitions, simulation games, etc.) promote interaction and motivation between students and with respect to the lecturers. Project and study rooms and a separate reference library allow group learning and information research.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The department is committed to providing its students with courses to help with the acquisition of international and cross-cultural skills and to prepare them better for their subsequent careers in Germany and abroad. Examples include events/courses in English and ones dealing with international topics, International Teaching Week with 5-6 English-taught electives, excursions to partner universities in India and China (embedded in courses), individual advice on trips abroad and mobility windows for incoming students.
