Support for founders

Implemented centrally by the HTW Career Service/Start-up Office. Professors from the department are involved where applicable.

Characteristics of assistance to differently abled persons

Students are granted a special right of enrolment, i.e. students with health impairments receive preferential treatment during course enrolment.

Characteristics of diversity advancement

Reference to central services and courses, e.g.: gender & diversity training, supplementary (AWE) courses with a gender/diversity focus, guidance on integrating gender aspects in seminar and final assignments, etc.

Other special features

In addition to the good IT equipment at the faculty, due to the close association with Mechanical Engineering and Automotive Engineering, there is also access to laboratory equipment such as the virtual reality system, 3D printers, NC machines, etc. The relation to practice that is achieved as a result of this provides added value that few Computer Science courses are likely to offer.
