Service Learning – Win-win for our students and for society

Are you tired of working on theoretical projects that will only end up in a drawer? Do you want to link what you are doing at uni with a sense of community, work in diverse teams, and earn ECTS credits for it? Then Service Learning is what you are looking for: From a renewable energy company in the children's play city Karlopolis, to a sustainably power-generating bicycle stage set for the theater, to a pressure-sensitive sensor mat for patients, there are no limits to your creativity. If you are interested, please contact us by e-mail oder or visit our section on the ILIAS learning platform.

Do you have your own idea that you want to put into practice? Then we will of course be happy to support you in turning it into reality.
