Founded in 1994, Hof University of Applied Sciences offers a very attractive study environment with its modern architecture, state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories and dormitories. Here students receive a first-class, hands-on education. As a practice-oriented University of Applied Sciences with integrated internships in all programmes, the employability of our graduates is our main focus.

We offer modern Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Business, Computer Science, Engineering, and Interdisciplinary and Innovative Sciences in English and German language. For students with at least one year of professional experience, Hof University Graduate School offers exciting further education opportunities completely in English language. Teaching is based on innovative methods to convey application-oriented knowledge. As we foster a continuous dialogue with industry, our graduates are ideally prepared for the domestic and international labour markets.

Intensive personal support

We are well known for our friendly study atmosphere. An excellent student-lecturer ratio allows for frequent contact between students and professors. Students benefit from intensive supervision and numerous personal support services such as orientation weeks, social integration events, and housing support. In addition, we have a strong focus on career promoting activities for students (e.g. career talks, job fairs, company visits).

The University’s outlook is extremely international, with more than 120 partner universities all over the world. About twenty percent of students come from abroad, creating a truly open and multinational atmosphere on campus.

Applied research

The university's five research institutes concentrate on Green Tech and sustainability:

The guiding principles for our research are practice-orientation, internationalisation and resource efficiency (focusing on indoor climate systems / water).

Students who are interested in a startup or in the formation of a company get advice and support at Einstein1, the digital business incubator on campus of Hof University.
