Special features regarding teaching

The courses have been developed over many years using blended learning concepts and this process is ongoing. The concepts are constantly adapted to the latest teaching methods.

Special features regarding research activities

The Faculties of Civil Engineering and the partner Faculties of Geo-Resources and Materials Management as well as Mechanical Engineering integrate students into research projects at an early stage as student assistants. Students can receive additional proof of this with the title "Science Assistance" on their Bachelor's or Master's certificate.
