Academic advice, taster lectures and workshops for prospective students and parents

On Sunday, 28 April from 1.00 to 6.00pm, the Tuttlingen campus will open its doors to prospective students, parents and the public.The Furtwangen University (HFU) campus will be offering taster lectures, study advice, workshops and campus tours.

From a taster course in Orientation Technology, Engineering Psychology, Medical Technology and Mechatronics and Digital Production, to Applied Materials Science. Whether full-time studies or dual studies – prospective students can get to know the bachelor's and master's degree programmes at the HFU Tuttlingen campus in personal discussions with students or professors. "The special thing about our study location in Tuttlingen is the extra dose of practical relevance. Through our cooperation with companies in the region, students gain insights into the industry from the first to the last semester, can generate contacts and transfer the knowledge they have acquired on campus into practice," says Dean Professor Dr. Albrecht Swietlik.

A programme for everyone

In four taster lectures, prospective students and parents can gain an insight into the departments and ask questions. Children can also take part in three workshops at the open day. They can immerse themselves in virtual worlds and learn how their perception can be fooled. The physics show explains everyday phenomena. At the electronics workshop, they can make a digital cube or learn about robot and sensor technologies.

Personal and practical: "Lecturers meet us at eye level"

Amelie Horn is studying for a bachelor's degree in Engineering Psychology at the Tuttlingen campus. She particularly appreciates the high practical relevance of her degree course and the informal atmosphere, "We have projects or internships in all semesters where we can apply the material from the lectures. We develop ideas for solutions, build prototypes or carry out experiments and surveys. Thanks to the close cooperation between the Tuttlingen Campus and companies, we have excursions to various companies, internships or benefit from industry experience through a mentoring programme. Everything here is very personal. The lectures usually take place in a rather small setting, so the lecturers know us personally and meet us at eye level," says the Nuremberg native.
