Proximity to research, excellent teaching and a relaxed atmosphere characterize the faculty's education. The world class achievements at our research centers with staff of various nationalities and the connection with industry lead to an interdisciplinary and international approach in all our academic programmes.

We offer 22 Bachelor's programmes, of which one is taught in English, and 13 Master's programmes in English. Our eleven departments offer a possibility to pursue a doctoral degree. Students who do not intend to study a whole programme may easily apply for single courses at all levels.
