KOM - Institute for Competence Development

As a central scientific unit of Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences, KOM serves as a place for cross-departmental teaching and learning. The institute focuses on the development, promotion and research of individual management and key skills. Its offers are aimed at all members of the university, graduates and other professionals.

“We promote competence – orientation – additional value at schools, in years of study and in phases of further education – that is our mission.”

The transition from school or vocational training to university places new demands on self-organization and learning that many students first need to get familiar with. KOM supports Students from the beginning with various offers that facilitate studying and provide vocational orientation.

In March 2016 the institute moved into the new building CIIT2.
