In the Workshop
In the Workshop – From the idea to implementation
The practical relevance of the teaching is established via the workshop training. The practical training in mechanical material processing and synthesis, system, circuit and component development, design, validation, trial and testing runs parallel to the theoretical study of natural sciences and electrical engineering and information technology under the condition of the preservation of creation through ethical behavior, the commitment to sustainability and the guarantee of quality & reliability and perfectly formed design.
From bachelor’s education to master’s degree to mastery!
Our workshop training philosophy
And just as in 1919, when the doors of the Bauhaus opened for the first time, the essence of the workshop includes:
- Avoidance of everything rigid, preference for the creative, freedom of individuality,
- Participation of students in the research and development work of our department,
- Bringing forth and realization of creative ideas and concepts (“Marketplace of Ideas”).
The cornerstone of this education is the basic practical training, which is mandatory for all our students. This consists of the various basic and advanced practical courses and the two experimental qualification theses:
- Bachelor thesis (“The journeyman’s piece”) and
- Master thesis (“The masterpiece”)
This experimental qualification work can – under certain conditions – also be completed in industry (work in practice) in order to carry out analyses of current problems, or can be completed in a domestic or foreign partner institute in order to learn new methods and techniques or to study new findings (for more information, see: “To think out of the box”).
The in-depth practical training, which goes beyond the basic canon, takes place by applying for advertised, paid scientific assistant positions of the “Workshop”, which are defined by the research and development projects of the respective institutes, or by convening the “Marketplace of Ideas” by our students (for further information see: “Marketplace of Ideas”).
For excellent students, there is the possibility of a doctorate after completion of the master’s program, and for selected, excellent doctoral students, there is even the possibility of a habilitation afterwards.
Every student of our department can be active in the “workshop” with the beginning of their studies!
