Campus Manager Björn Mohr
“Modern teaching and learning must go beyond the mere transfer of knowledge. Rather, it should be about being able to try things out, meeting other inspiring people and realizing one’s potential in a protected environment by working on practical projects. Experiencing this and seeing my students succeed fulfills me every day.”
