Practical experience through projects

Project work is the hallmark of our degree programmes. Customers come from the worlds of industry and business. Our students learn to work as part of a team and to communicate with external partners. Furthermore, they get to use a wide variety of working techniques and creativity methods – from the very first semester. Many of our students meet their future employer when working on these real-life problems.

Customisable degrees

One of the major strengths of our educational concept is the option it offers you to customise your degree. Thanks to the modular degree structure, students decide which aspects of the content they wish to focus on, thereby shaping the profile they wish to bring to the jobs market.
