Research & education

Since being founded in 1997 and admitting its first students in 1998, the university has developed into a future-oriented educational establishment: State-of-the-art technologies, professors and lecturers with practical experience plus modern study programmes which meet the requirements of the future labour market guarantee a high standard of scientific training.

Individuality and maximum freedom during your degree course are a matter of course. The integrated campus concept and the location of the university in the town of Nordhausen enable the combination of research and instruction, studying and living on campus, offering virtually incomparable prerequisites for an interesting and pleasant student life at the southern edge of the Harz. Covering 11 hectares, the campus offers sufficient scope to combine both instruction and research, sport, culture and accommodation on the campus. This enables studying with short distances, intensive support in small study groups and in cutting-edge laboratories and teaching facilities.
Make use of the diverse, additional offers to gain a qualification in the international arena, e.g. via integrated foreign language tuition, or an internship or study period abroad. The university is a member of a network of European universities, and maintains a multitude of international university partnerships, guaranteeing you a degree course abroad with full recognition of your study performance or internship.

Pressing-Drill-Method and Pressmethod

What we offer

- Laborities

The DIN standard „Determination of the water-soluble content of chloride, sodium and potassium in solid waste materials by means of press-fluid according to the pressmethod” is a possibility for the rationalisation as well as the quality control and is a faster alternative to the standard procedures of elution and extraction.

With regard to properly sampling heterogeneous materials, a new method was developed – the so-called “pressing-drill-method”. The analysis samples are the base of the quality assurance for an aspired recovery. The challenge of the sampling from wide volumes of heterogeneous material mixtures of low density is, in the end, the production of analysis results about representative analysis samples.
