Stu­dent clubs and ini­tia­tives and oth­er communities

Stu­dent ini­tia­tives, reg­is­tered stu­dent asso­ci­a­tions, but also stu­dent groups not orga­nized as an asso­ci­a­tion are an impor­tant part and expres­sion of stu­dent cul­ture at Heil­bronn University.

Basi­cal­ly, a dis­tinc­tion is made between rec­og­nized and non-rec­og­nized asso­ci­a­tions. As a rec­og­nized asso­ci­a­tion, you ben­e­fit from var­i­ous sub­si­dies (see the Recog­ni­tion Statutes for the Read­ing Constitution).

Below you will find an overview of the stu­dent ini­tia­tives, asso­ci­a­tions and groups at Heil­bronn Uni­ver­si­ty. It is intend­ed to show you the many oppor­tu­ni­ties for involve­ment at your uni­ver­si­ty and to put you in direct con­tact with the groups.

You want to have your stu­dent group, ini­tia­tive or asso­ci­a­tion rec­og­nized? You want to extend your appli­ca­tion? Then you will find the rel­e­vant doc­u­ments here:

Med­ical Infor­mat­ics Initiative

The MI ini­tia­tive takes care of the con­cerns of MI stu­dents and offers every MI stu­dent the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get involved out­side of lec­tures and to active­ly par­tic­i­pate in every­day study life. By get­ting involved in the var­i­ous work­ing groups, it is pos­si­ble to dis­pel the prej­u­dices of social­ly incom­pe­tent com­put­er sci­en­tists. Not only do we plan joint excur­sions, bike tours and par­ties, but we even go ski­ing with our lec­tur­ers every year.

Speak­ing of ski­ing, in order to break the ice between the ini­tia­tive and our first-year stu­dents, we orga­nize a wel­come get-togeth­er every semes­ter at which not only stu­dents but also many of our lec­tur­ers can be found. In a pleas­ant atmos­phere, fresh­men have the chance to meet and get to know fel­low stu­dents from high­er semes­ters and lec­tur­ers already in the first week. This infor­mal atmos­phere is a spe­cial fea­ture of the pro­gram and the initiative.

We see our­selves as a com­mu­ni­ty of cur­rent and for­mer stu­dents, who act accord­ing to the demo­c­ra­t­ic basic order of the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many and also allow oth­er opin­ions besides their own. We are polit­i­cal­ly neu­tral, non-denom­i­na­tion­al and open to mem­bers of all nationalities.

Sneep e.V.

sneep stands for “stu­dent net­work for ethics in eco­nom­ics and prac­tice” and as a stu­dent net­work forms an inter­face between sci­ence, eco­nom­ics and pol­i­tics. Our asso­ci­a­tion aims to stim­u­late crit­i­cal dis­course on eth­i­cal and sus­tain­able eco­nom­ics in the­o­ry and prac­tice. As a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary net­work of stu­dents, trainees, doc­tor­al can­di­dates and young pro­fes­sion­als, we want to bring sus­tain­abil­i­ty and ethics more strong­ly into busi­ness and science.

We want to encour­age peo­ple to think out­side the bound­aries of clas­si­cal eco­nom­ics and thus iden­ti­fy pos­si­bil­i­ties for doing busi­ness in the 21st century.

HHN eRac­ing

For­mu­la Stu­dent Elec­tric Team of Heil­bronn Uni­ver­si­ty, Künzel­sau Cam­pus. Our mot­to: pas­sion for emotion

HHN E‑Racing is the elec­tric depart­ment at the Cam­pus Künzel­sau of HHN Rac­ing e.V. Our goal is to pro­vide a sec­ond vehi­cle with inno­v­a­tive elec­tric dri­ve for the For­mu­la Stu­dent com­pe­ti­tion in addi­tion to the vehi­cle with com­bus­tion engine devel­oped in Heilbronn.

HHN Rac­ing e.V.

HHN Rac­ing is the For­mu­la Stu­dent Team of Heil­bronn University.

For the For­mu­la Stu­dent com­pe­ti­tion, the par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents design, con­struct and build a for­mu­la rac­ing car accord­ing to spec­i­fied reg­u­la­tions with­in one year. After its com­ple­tion, the indi­vid­ual teams meet at the world­wide com­pe­ti­tions to present their rac­ing cars to an expert jury with judges from the auto­mo­tive indus­try and For­mu­la 1 and to com­pete against each oth­er in var­i­ous dis­ci­plines.
The par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents thus already gain prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence dur­ing their stud­ies and can deep­en their the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge from the lec­tures. In addi­tion to the areas of devel­op­ment, design and man­u­fac­tur­ing, this also applies to team­work, project man­age­ment and marketing.

Singing togeth­er brings peo­ple togeth­er and con­nects them.

Per­spek­tive Wein eG is the stu­dent teach­ing com­pa­ny of the Wine Mar­ket­ing and Man­age­ment (WMM) degree pro­gram (for­mer­ly Inter­na­tion­al Wine Man­age­ment or Wine Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion) at Heil­bronn University.

The com­pa­ny is man­aged by stu­dents who pur­sue the goals of this com­pa­ny with pas­sion, pro­fes­sion and suc­cess. Under the mot­to „Teach­ing-Prac­tice-Com­pe­tence” they put their the­o­ret­i­cal­ly acquired mar­ket­ing and wine knowl­edge into prac­tice and thus demon­strate their cre­ativ­i­ty and skills.

One way to get involved is ProVi­no e.V., the stu­dent asso­ci­a­tion of the Wine Mar­ket­ing and Man­age­ment program.

We at ProVi­no are an asso­ci­a­tion “by stu­dents — for stu­dents”. This includes, for exam­ple, tak­ing care of the first-year stu­dents of the Inter­na­tion­al Wine Man­age­ment course, excur­sions to the Ger­man wine-grow­ing regions or the orga­ni­za­tion of the annu­al Wine Forum. We orga­nize par­ties for IWM stu­dents but also for all oth­ers who are inter­est­ed in wine.

SMD Heil­bronn: Chris­t­ian uni­ver­si­ty group

SMD Heil­bronn stands for Stu­dent Mis­sion Ger­many and is part of a Ger­many-wide net­work of Chris­t­ian uni­ver­si­ty groups.

Our mis­sion is to get to know Jesus and expe­ri­ence him togeth­er with you. Whether you’ve been Best Bud­dies for a long time or you haven’t heard of him yet, let’s go on a search for clues togeth­er and dis­cov­er who Jesus real­ly is! To do this, we’ll look at excit­ing eye­wit­ness accounts and sto­ries in the Bible, invit­ing Jesus to intro­duce him­self to us in the process. We also like to play fun games, go out to eat and have a real­ly cool time together!
