Kempten University of Applied Sciences
Bahnhofstraße 61
87435 Kempten (Allgäu)


Kempten University of Applied Sciences is located in the southwest of Bavaria in the heart of the Allgäu region. It was founded as a state-owned university of applied sciences in 1978. Over 5,500 young women and men study here with a good view of the Alps. Varied degree courses are offered, covering Business & Tourism Management, Social & Health Sciences, Engineering Sciences and Computer Science & Multimedia.

Some 130 full-time professors, 250 associate professors from the industry and 200 scientific and non-academic staff manage the study programme and assist with student life. 

A practical approach to teaching and learning, an international outlook as well as up-to-date building and technology standards ensure excellent study conditions and academic training on an excellent level. All buildings are situated on our city campus and the University’s moderate size creates a very personal atmosphere. 

The University offers dual study courses in co-operation with the Bavarian Industry Association as part of the  ‘hochschule-dual’-scheme. These courses enable students to increase the practical part of their studies, or to combine academic studies with a vocational degree. 

The extensive research projects of Kempten University are divided into five research focuses: Energy Systems and Energy Technology, Networked Mobility and Vehicle Technology, Production and Automation Technology, Healthcare Management, Innovative Teaching Methods.
