Offenburg University


Founded in 1964, as a "National School of Engineering," Offenburg University of Applied Sciences quickly established itself as a high-performance educational institution with a practical orientation. Today our University forms a thriving community, with over 4,300 students on two campuses. We offer Bachelor's and Master's degrees in four Departments: Business Administration and Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Process Engineering, and Media and Information.

International profile

Of­fen­burg Uni­ver­sity prides it­self on the in­ter­na­tional ori­en­ta­tion of its pro­grams. In 1998, it was one of the first in­sti­tu­tions of higher ed­u­ca­tion in Ger­many to in­tro­duce in­ter­na­tional Mas­ter's de­gree pro­grams through the Grad­u­ate School. Today, we offer five Eng­lish-taught pro­grams which cater es­pe­cially to in­ter­na­tional stu­dents, who com­prise about twelve per­cent of the total stu­dent body. Ad­di­tion­ally, the In­ter­na­tional Of­fice main­tains ac­tive ex­change pro­grams with more than 50 part­ner uni­ver­si­ties world­wide, giv­ing our stu­dents plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties at study and in­tern­ships abroad. Thanks to our prox­im­ity with the French bor­der, we can also offer dou­ble-de­gree pro­grams with pres­ti­gious French uni­ver­si­ties.

Excellent study conditions

Of­fen­burg Uni­ver­sity of­fers a smaller cam­pus, and stu­dents ben­e­fit from the ad­van­tages of a more in­ti­mate ex­pe­ri­ence with smaller classes, in­di­vid­ual su­per­vi­sion and sup­port by fac­ulty and staff, as well as from hands-on teach­ing and a close in­te­gra­tion with the re­gional econ­omy. The Uni­ver­sity en­joys high rank­ings and was even awarded by the As­so­ci­a­tion for the Pro­mo­tion of Sci­ence and Hu­man­i­ties in Ger­many for being a re­formed tech­ni­cal col­lege.

Economic partnerships

The University maintains excellent relations with regional and national businesses, and there is a constant exchange of information between faculty members and industry professionals, providing continuing access to current know-how in the engineering field. The extensive business partnerships also provide resources for students in terms of gaining work experience, doing research, or even for future employment.

Research and Technology

The University's Institute for Applied Research (IAF) offers a combination of research and technology transfer. The IAF heads technology and innovative ideas from the fields of solar energy, medicine, robotics and electrical mobility. Throughout the University, there is a great interdisciplinary mix of experts from different technological fields possessing special knowledge and modern laboratories. The application-oriented research activities and practical experience that the University offers are a testament to its high performance.
