Multidisciplinary variety

We offer degree courses and active academic collaboration in the MINT subjects (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and engineering), economics, the social sciences and public health as well as in architecture and design. Our Department of General and Interdisciplinary Studies is unique in providing every student with a cross-disciplinary education and in developing their personal skills.


Studying with a profile

It is especially important for us to nurture our graduates' characters: besides their well-founded professional skills, our students should stand out by thinking and acting in a sustainable, entrepreneurial and intercultural way. With these additional qualifications which reach beyond the students' specialist fields, we prepare them to contribute to society and to approach their careers with foresight, creativity and a sense of responsibility.
