Special features regarding teaching

Our courses combine a general and specific compulsory programme with a large number of individual elective options. Particularly in industrial engineering, we enable broad-based acquisition of skills in engineering, business administration and information technology. The basic course is characterised by a strong MINT orientation. This allows students to specialise later on in engineering (production & development) or economics (marketing & controlling and/or corporate management & information systems).

Special features regarding the international orientation

Our faculty has many international contacts at organisational and personnel levels. All study programmes benefit particularly from the experience with the Bachelor's in International Business Administration and Master's in International Marketing & Sales thanks to their emphasis on English-language courses that attract many international students, especially from many of the partner universities. These partnerships thrive on constant exchange, especially in the form of visits, joint research and guest stays; joint projects with international companies.

Special features regarding the equipment

Our faculty offers a variety of courses with different requirements. This creates a wide range of possibilities in terms of technical equipment and subject-specific databases. As concerns technical equipment, we also benefit from the possibilities of the technical departments, particularly Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. We also maintain separate workstations for Matlab, SPSS, CAD and SAP applications and an Industry 4.0 centre with a learning factor and laboratory. Open-access learning and project rooms for our students round off the range of our services.

Special features regarding research and development

Our faculty is part of the most research oriented university in Baden-Wuerttemberg and is consistently oriented to international research standards. We have a high level of competence in quantitative and qualitative empirical research methods and are up to date with our laboratories for Industry 4.0, Eye Tracking and big Data. Artificial intelligence and digital transformation are not limited to technical issues alone. They place new demands on business processes and corporate governance. At the Aalen Institute for Corporate Management, we are dealing with the latter question.

Support for founders

To promote entrepreneurial spirit, the Aalen University has implemented its own programme (GuStL). In the faculty, all students benefit from the experience of small and medium-sized companies in the field of business start-ups. In practical terms, we promote start-ups together with the technical departments of the university and have developed the joint Master's in Business Development especially for entrepreneurial students. Together with our innovation centre and the AAcelerator of our region, we offer student start-ups space, equipment and advice for a successful start.

Other special features

We conduct our own selection processes for our courses and, as a faculty, deliberately emphasize the selection of applicants. Our focus is on (future) students. This is why we invest in student support and make time for students. This is borne out by a large number of tutorials, exercises and small group sizes.
