Electives Outside your Major

HTWG Konstanz students are encouraged to think outside the box of their majors and begin to develop other essential skills, such as soft skills, already early on in their studies.

The HTWG Konstanz thus offers a broad range of electives and extra-curricular activities: from our legendary university theater, which has performed in such unusual locations as an indoor swimming pool or a discotheque, to the Open Innovation Lab, in which students can tinker on new ideas using 3D printers, milling machines or virtual reality glasses. Or students can join our successful racing team that builds its own electric racing motorcycles or race cars and participates in international competitions.

In the framework of our Extracurricular Studies Program ("Studium Generale”), students can take such courses for credit.

Here’s a selection of our extra-curricular activities:

Foreign Languages Program

Open Innovation Lab

University Theater

College Radio Station

Bodensee Racing Team (Formula Student)
