Together for tomorrow: WiSo 2030



We intend that our degree programs and all research and transfer activities make a significant contribution to the transformation of society and the economy with a view to the challenges ahead. That's why we network intensively with our regional environment and establish transfer and innovation alliances with companies, public and civil society actors. These collaborations lead to numerous internships and practical projects, which are anchored in the curriculum in 80 percent of the degree programs. All teachers have at least five years of practical professional experience. External lecturers from practice bring current practical requirements into teaching. This enables our students to think and act in a scientifically based and practical way and strengthens their problem-solving skills and creativity.
