The Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, THWS in short, with about 9,300 enrolled students is one of the largest technical universities of applied sciences in Bavaria. The ten THWS faculties offer around 50 bachelor’s and master’s programmes. The diverse and future-oriented curriculum covers the areas of technology, business and economics, social sciences, computer science, design, and languages. Studies at THWS are characterised by outstanding practice-orientation. Internship semesters, research projects, and a high proportion of lab and seminar work make up the practice relevance of studies at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt. Students are optimally prepared for the requirements in companies and in their careers. Dual cooperative study programme and the TWIN Programmes, that are unique throughout Germany, complete the study offers.

THWS strives to be an international higher education institution, at which students of multiple nations study together. For this, THWS has established the so-called TWIN Programmes, that enable students to switch between the English- and German-taught degree programme while studying. This leads to diverse study groups whose members benefit from the different linguistic and cultural competences. THWS also has a network of over 200 international partner universities across the world, at which THWS students can complete a semester abroad.

Numerous labs, institutes and technology transfer centers promote applied research and enable students to put their theoretical knowledge into practice. Within the framework of the research map of the German Rectors' Conference (HRK), THWS has chosen three research focuses: “Energy technology and energy efficiency", “Human and mobility" and “Digital and intelligent systems".
