Barrier-free study

Anyone who wants to study is confronted with many questions. In addition to the course of studies and the place of study, possibilities for financing and accommodation must be explored. With one limitation, the decision for a university education depends on other factors: Can I reach the premises, am I able to cope with the study workload, can I turn to someone?

Help from the Dean of Studies

The team of the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is constantly working to offer all students the opportunity to study with equal opportunities. Therefore we adapt to your different needs. For example, we take care of your individual study and examination planning, help you find accommodation and are happy to support you in compensating for disadvantages if necessary. It is also important to us to provide barrier-free access to all events. We would also be grateful for any kind of advice where structural or organisational intervention on our part is necessary.

Construction measures

The Otto-Klüsener-Haus, our house for students, was extended in 2012 and since then is at ground level via the rear entrance and equipped with a stair lift for wheelchair users. On the ground floor there is a disabled toilet. In 2012 Üstra converted its stops in front of the university into elevated platforms. This ensures that you can easily reach your respective venue.

Equal opportunities in examinations and study achievements

Since restrictions can lead to disadvantages in the achievement of study or examination achievements, a compensation for disadvantages can be granted. The aim of compensation for disadvantages is to compensate for the disadvantage by modifying the study or examination achievements to be achieved. Who can apply for compensation of disadvantages and what this can look like can be found in the explanations on compensation of disadvantages. The procedure is uncomplicated, as an application is made once and deposited with the examination board or the dean of studies.
