Special features regarding teaching

Application-oriented courses combined with a number of laboratory practicals as well as industry-related or highly practical course work. Teaching is also accompanied by a number of mentoring programmes especially for female engineering students as well as programmes during the initial phase of studies and coaching during studies together with professionally experienced female engineers. 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 Mechanical Engineering/Environmental Engineering Department offers two international Master´s degree programmes and maintains partnerships and research projects with various universities in India, South America, South Korea, China and the Czech Republic. In addition, a double-degree agreement was concluded with the Finnish Novia University of Applied Sciences in Vaasa. Above and beyond this, there is collaboration with 31 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 ha state-of-the-art laboratory equipment s in its approx. 30 laboratories (e.g.competence centre for power-cold-heat cogeneration, fluid mechanics with wind tunnel, renewable energy systems, environmental analysis, recycling technology, etc.). This makes practically oriented, up-to-date student training possible. Equipment in the laboratories is continuously upgraded with the aid of public funding and third-party research. The faculty also offers students six computer labs with modern equipment.

Special features regarding research and development

Students are directly involved in research and industrial projects. In addition, it is also possible to participate in university-wide student projects: e.g. Technology Without Borders or development of an electric race car. The department conducts, e.g. research work in the following areas: Energy and resource efficiency, cogeneration, supercapacitors, recyclables and active ingredients from Microalgae... This is also reflected in the foundation of real-life laboratories, institutes and innovative learning locations to support research, teaching and development.

Other special features

Small groups to intensify the transfer of knowledge and competence as well as personal atmosphere, practically-oriented training in modern laboratories, top business contacts for optimum career prospects after the degree course, relaxed housing market and low cost of living, 24-hour library, analyses of the course of studies.
