About the University

Hochschule Kaiserslautern - from the region, for the region, into the world
The Hochschule Kaiserslautern sees itself as a modern university for applied sciences and design. Around 6,200 students from more than 80 countries and some 150 professors study, teach, and research in five faculties at the Kaiserslautern, Pirmasens, and Zweibrücken campuses. In 1996, the Hochschule emerged from a department of the former Hochschule Rheinland-Pfalz, which dates back to the mid-19th century, and utilized its independence to devote itself to the core tasks of undergraduate education, academic development, applied research and development and its resulting technology transfer, and to further improve its competitive standing.

Offered Courses
The courses offered consist of more than 50 innovative Bachelor’s, Master’s, and vocational training courses in the fields of Life and Engineering Sciences, Design, Business Studies, IT, and Communications. The study courses are designed to be practice-oriented, interdisciplinary, and flexible. A high level of internationalism in the study courses is ensured by promoting student and professor exchanges with more than 100 partner universities worldwide.

Support Services
There are many projects supported by the BMBF to ensure the quality of teaching and to bridge the gap between professional and academic education. The project “Promoting Individual Study Paths” (FIS) takes the individual abilities of the students into account and develops measures for intensive support during the course and to facilitate the transition into studying and work. It is funded by the BMBF program, the Hochschulpakt Säule III - better study conditions and higher quality in teaching.

The goal of the BMBF-funded, cooperative project by the Hochschule Kaiserslautern, Koblenz, and Trier, Open MINT Labs (OML) is to collaboratively develop and execute Blended Learning Lab concepts in the subjects of Life and Engineering Sciences, in order to increase motivation and success in studying.

Research and Technology Transfer
The application-oriented research & development is mostly carried out in cooperation with businesses. The Hochschule serves as a partner to the local economy, whereby the support given as part of students’ employment in a company means that there are many people actively involved in the transfer of knowledge and technology.
