Höxter has made a name for itself as a campus dedicated to ecological aspects in engineering.
Study programs at Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences prepare students for the world of work from the word go. Practice orientation is the hallmark of studying at universities of applied sciences. At Ostwestfalen-Lippe University, scientific knowledge and methods are conveyed and applied in the numerous well equipped labs and institutes. Thanks to our close cooperation with industry, it is commonplace for our students to carry out work placements and prepare theses in companies. Studies are rounded off by practical semesters.
In the field of research and technology OWL UAS has two main profile areas: life science technology and industrial IT. The Institute Industrial IT (inIT) carries out research in the field of industrial informatics and industrial automation for cyber-physical systems. The InIT is located in a science to business center (Centrum Industrial IT) on the Innovation Campus Lemgo, where more than 200 engineers from companies and research institutes are working in the field of industrial IT.

The Institute Future Energy focusses on energy demand and energy  supply  and on questions of climate change reduction based on interdisciplinary research.

The Institute for Science in Dialogue addresses aspects of communication between society, politics and OWL UAS as well as interdisciplinary teaching inside OWL UAS.

The university’s excellent contact to the local industry and businesses is the basis for innovative study programs and successful research collaborations. Thanks to the excellent education of our graduates and the close cooperation, Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences has become an essential and indispensable part of the economic region.

The Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is an international university situated on its own compact campus in the Hamburg metropolitan region. It is committed to Humboldt’s educational ideal wherein research and teaching are intertwined. The TUHH sees its graduates as shapers of the future and thereby attaches special importance to them. They shape future technologies on a sound professional basis, assume social and ecological responsibility and take an interdisciplinary approach to their work.

Professionality, responsibility and interdisciplinarity are the three key educational objectives that the TUHH always has in mind in conceiving, implementing and further developing its educational offerings. These offerings set different priorities. Viewed as a whole, they form the foundation on which our students can develop as they progress along the course of their education. 

Studying at TUHH brings numerous educational offerings, ranging from introductory courses for young scholars just beginning their studies, to life-long learning opportunities. On this route TUHH promotes continuous and long-term support for its students to enable them to learn sustainably and acquire comprehensive competencies with a focus on teaching excellence. In this way TUHH strives to imbue its graduates with the first-class professional and social competencies they need to attract excellent job opportunities upon graduation and a socially and ecologically oriented influence on our common future thereafter.
