We currently offer over 15 courses, including Engineering Tools and Laboratory tutorials, as well as student’s and focus projects. Students are strongly integrated in our research activities and industrial collaborations and are closely working together with PhD students. They appreciate our commitment to teaching: In the past 10 years, we have supervised roughly 600 student projects, including more than 120 Bachelor-Theses, 290 Semester-Thesis and 190 Master- resp. Diploma Theses.
