Overview Study programs Teaching & Research

Aspects of our teaching

Innovative teaching ensures excellent graduates. That's why we use a wide variety of formats to convey the diverse teaching content. Cross-faculty, cross-university and cross-national courses are held on a regular basis. Excursions underline the theoretical knowledge of the lectures in practice. In the process, contacts can also be made and insights gained into companies.

Some examples:

Teaching Award of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences for Prof. Dr. Susanne Kruse

She was honored for her outstanding implementation of the required Mathematics B for Industrial Engineers module in an online format.

Course "Learning Factory 4.X

The Learning Factory 4.X is a cooperative project between the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.

Students from Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences are given the task of creating a marketable product, taking into account design and economic aspects. In this context, the KIT students have the task of making a virtual reality application to visualize the products in order to support the students of the university in the marketing and product development phase. The VR application is used here primarily for design review, functional analysis and the presentation and marketing of the products.

The results of the students in the video:

The One-Click Solution

Project Knife Block

Lasering, Drilling, Bending, Welding

Long night of electrical engineering

How to solder a circuit board? How do you measure direct current and alternating current correctly?
During the Long Night of Electrical Engineering, students gain hands-on experience in the fundamentals of electrical engineering.
Experiments are carried out at various stations, e.g. students measure circuits or experiment with electric and magnetic fields.

Design Thinking Workshop

Creative idea-finding processes in creative environments: The topics of entrepreneurship and founding are emphasized at HKA.
In elective courses and design thinking workshops, students develop their own ideas for possible product developments, strategies and business models.
For this purpose, HKA offers creative spaces such as co-working spaces and the Entrepreneurship Garage.

Exkursion zu TRUMPF

Students from the International Industrial Goods Marketing course visited the machine tool manufacturer TRUMPF with Prof. Dr. Christian Braun.

In addition to interesting insights into production sites, excursions of this kind provide good opportunities for students to get to know potential internships or future employers.

Applied research

Applied research is the central area of responsibility of the Faculty of Business and Economics alongside teaching - and is to be expanded even further in the future. Our doctoral students devote themselves to current topics in their research projects. The scientific focus and results are presented by the faculty in various publications and contributions by professors.
