Practice-orientation, internationalization and resource efficiency are at the heart of teaching and research at Hof University, which currently offers 33 bachelor’s and master’s programs in Business, Computing and Engineering. The three research institutes concentrate on information technology, materials science as well as water and energymanagement. The affiliated Bavarian-Indian Centre for Business and University Cooperation boosts cooperation between Bavaria and India. 

The university is located in the Bavarian city of Hof. Our campus in Münchberg offers a unique education in Germany, because of the relationship between the economy and the Textile and Design programs. Companies also benefit from the centers of excellence and institutes at the University.

With a comfortable student-lecturer ratio, students get intensive support during their studies. In addition, the International Office, the Housing Office and the Career Service offer numerous services to support international students on their arrival and during their stay in Hof.

As a University of Applied Sciences, we pay special attention to the employability of our graduates. Our professors have profound experience both in industry and in academia.

We maintain a close network with more than 85 partner universities all over the world. Our international programs include Innovative Textiles (B.Eng) and Software Engineering for Industrial Applications (M.Eng), which are taught entirely in English.
