What we stand for

As a University of Applied Sciences, we focus on the acquisition of practical skills and specific professional competencies. Integrating traineeships and challenge-based projects in curricula is typical for all our study fields. This leads to close connections to the work field (companies, organizations, government). They are part of our local ecosystems. When we enter international partnerships, we start from the ambition to fulfill our 3-fold mission (education, research and social services) together. We turn our local partnerships, into international partnerships and switch from local ecosystems to international ecosystems.
