Special features regarding teaching

Application-oriented courses combined with a number of laboratory practicals as well as industry-related or highly practical course work. The course includes many mentoring programmes, especially for female engineering students, i.e. programmes in the initial study phase and coaching later on by engineers with professional experience. There is also a practical project called "Running Snail Racing Team" in which an interdisciplinary team of students and professors participates in the Formula Student competition.

Special features regarding the international orientation

The faculty of Mechanical Engineering/Environmental Engineering has partnerships and research projects with the University of West Bohemia, Pilsen. In addition, there is collaboration with 27 internationally operating companies in the form of a Partner Circle, and Innovative learning centres have been established, e.g. in India.

Special features regarding the equipment

The faculty of Mechanical Engineering/Environmental Engineering has state-of-the-art equipment in its approx. 30 laboratories (e.g. engine test benches, fibre laser deployment, etc.). This makes practically oriented, up-to-date student training possible. The equipment in the laboratories is continuously upgraded in consultation with students. The faculty also offers students six computer labs with modern equipment.

Special features regarding research and development

The students are directly involved in projects in applied research with industry and through their work on practically-oriented topics as part of course assignments integrated in the research work. In addition, it is also possible to participate in a university-wide student project: development of an electric race car. The department conducts, e.g. research work in the following areas: Combustion machines, simulation, additive manufacturing, laser technology, etc. This is also reflected in the formation of several affiliated institutes to support research and development.

Support for founders

At both sites, the OTH Amberg-Weiden offers founders of companies in the digital sector co-working spaces and an interesting network. https://www.oth-aw.de/forschen-und-kooperieren/partner-netzwerke/dgo/

Other special features

Small study groups and personal atmosphere, practically-oriented training in modern laboratories, top business contacts for optimum career prospects after the degree course, relaxed housing market and low rents, 24-hour library, drop-out study, analyses of course progress.
