Profile

Augsburg University of Applied Sciences has over 6,000 students, making it the largest university of applied sciences in Bavarian Swabia. Its history and tradition reach back further than those of nearly every other university of applied sciences in Germany: In 2010 the University celebrated the 300th birthday of its arts faculty and in 2011 its 40th year as a university of applied sciences.

Students acquire knowledge, practical skills and social competence in seven faculties: Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Design, Faculty of Computer Science, Faculty of Mechanical and Process Engineering, Faculty of Business. 

Around 150 highly qualified professors, 300 tutors and 240 members of support staff strive to provide students with the best education to prepare them for their future careers and leading roles in society. Excellence in teaching and an applied approach to learning, as well as state-of-the-art laboratories, workshops and lecture halls, all contribute to excellent conditions for research and teaching. 

On average, 90 percent of students at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences find jobs immediately after graduating, start their own businesses or enrol for further studies. As highly qualified employees these graduates play an important role in the region’s economic development. Each semester professors and students take part in applied research and development projects in co-operation with regional enterprises. 90 percent of bachelor’s and master’s theses are prepared during periods of practical work in companies. 

Augsburg University of Applied Sciences stands for applied research and development at the highest level. As a generator of innovation the University offers its regional partners expert knowledge and customised solutions. The Centres for Mechatronics, Environmental and Construction Engineering offer special knowledge hubs. Research also focuses on “resource efficiency” (from logistics to advanced composite technology) as well as on the interaction of people and technology (interactive media, IT security). The central contact point for research co-operations is the „Institut für Technologietransfer und Weiterbildung“ (Institute for Technology Transfer and Continuing Education) which co-ordinates research projects across different faculties.
