The Faculty brings the intellectual and human capital of each individual student to a higher level by offering him or her a research-based education in scientific and engineering fundamentals. The Faculty stimulates students to practice in-depth learning by addressing and challenging their “disciplinary future self”, to make them aware of who they wish to become as a professional (Beruf) and as members of society in general (Bildung). In order to stimulate the development of the students’ disciplinary future self, the Faculty provides multidisciplinary programmes that acquaint students with the engineering profession and with related disciplines. We value both breadth and depth of knowledge, expanding the reasoning, communication and problem-solving abilities, in order to prepare students for life-long learning. Our research-oriented education is based on research programmes which are defined and developed in close collaboration with recognized international peers and with industry.
