Women & Engineering – Brand new solutions

“That’s not the right thing for girls. You don’t need to do something that difficult! And you’ll certainly get dirty, too!” When the talk is about engineering, society still has a number of prejudices and unchallenged clichés. Girls who decide to pursue studies in a technical field often still have to justify their choice.

Research & Development – Implementing innovations

Application-oriented and practical – that is how research at UASs can be described. Scientific work flows directly into a new product, an improved service or is further optimised by research for practical use in the industry. Universities of Applied Sciences cooperate closely in this area with businesses in the region.

Student Life – Well-provided for, yet still independent

What does an average day look like in the life of a UAS student? The course schedule gives the day a certain rhythm and ensures that students stay on top of things and do not waste time on administrative matters which they could spend on their studies. The application and acceptance procedure eliminates any waiting for places in courses and the fight for a seat in a lecture. Yet students naturally have the right to and the desire for a life outside of completing the required curriculum. This is where the location of the UASs comes in.

UAS courses of study are hands-on and practical in multiple ways: Numerous lectures, courses and tutorials are held by professionals from the world of work; and, in addition, already during their studies students go out into every day work life and apply what they have learned. This is made possible by the work placement which is a required part of every UAS course of studies.

Study Forms - The right model for everyone

This is made possible by the Bologna Model, which was accepted by 29 states in 1999 in the Italian city of Bologna. This model was designed to provide for a common three-stage study architecture: The first degree is the Bachelor’s, followed by the Master’s, which, in turn, is followed by doctorate studies. Where exactly is the flexibility in this study plan? It’s simple: Anyone who earns a Bachelor’s degree at a University of Applied Sciences or a traditional university can immediately begin a relevant Master’s study programme – generally at any other UAS or traditional university, either at home or in another European country.
