Excellence in Teaching and Learning in Engineering
Together with RWTH Aachen University and TU Dortmund University , RUB has launched a project for excellence in teaching and learning in engineering called ELLI (Exzellentes Lehren und Lernen in den Ingenieurwissenschaften). ELLI has received approximately 11 million euros of funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The project focuses on the development of virtual learning environments with the introduction, construction, and systematic integration of distance-operated lab facilities and computer-generated simulated experiments; another focus is international mobility. The universities are also striving to develop study formats that consolidate the professional competencies of engineers during their studies, which would include intercultural competence and interdisciplinary dialogue.
