Gaining practical experience alongside your studies is always useful. Ilmenau offers a wide range of opportunities for this - from volunteer work in associations to handicrafts in university workshops to project work that is integrated into the studies: At the TU, there is something for everyone. We asked six students what practical offers they take advantage of.

At the moment, I am an active member of UNIKAT, participated in the PracticING program and successfully completed the Ilmkubator Class 2021. At the Ilmkubator, the start-up service of the TU Ilmenau, we worked on our start-up idea in various workshops. In the process, I got the feeling that I could actually get my company off the ground. At PracticING and UNIKAT, I learned that I like to tinker with my own projects and how I can best realize my ideas. The practical work also gives you a better understanding of the material taught at university. The teaching content sounds totally abstract and useless at first, but in practice you learn what is important and where the focus lies. You also only learn what your own strengths and exact interests are when you try out practical projects for yourself.
