About the University
The Fachhochschule Potsdam is a University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, the capital of the German federal state of Brandenburg. It was founded in 1991 and teaching began in the 1991/92 winter semester.
After the state of Brandenburg was founded again in 1990 following the German Reunification, the tertiary education system was restructured. The Fachhochschule Potsdam was thus founded in 1991. Located in the Potsdam district of Neu Fahrland the faculty for Social Sciences was the first to be started in the 1991/92 winter semester. The college's founding principle was Helmut Knüppel. In the same year, the college moved to the former teacher training college in the Friedrich-Ebert-Straße in the town center.
In 1992 the five departments: architecture, design, construction, and library/documentation science were opened. In 1993 Volker Bley was appointed chancellor and the Freunde und Förderer der Fachhochschule Potsdam e.V. (Association of Friends and Patrons) was founded.
In 1994 the faculties of architecture, design, and construction moved to the newly created campus in Pappelallee in the north of Potsdam.
The Institute for Further Education, Research, and Development was founded as a registered charity in 1994, the management and administration relocated to Pappelallee and a year later the subjects of Cultural Science and Catering were established.
All courses are modularized and are rewarded with internationally recognized credits. In addition to the bachelor's degrees, almost all faculties also offer courses for Master's degrees. Students can take part in courses at all universities in Brandenburg.
The Bachelor's and Master's degree courses in European Media Studies, are jointly offered by the college and the University of Potsdam. The Pappelallee college campus offers a degree program in Interface Design which is almost unique in the whole of Germany.
As of 2015, the college offers courses in Architecture and Urban Development, Civil Engineering, Design, Information Sciences, Conservation and Restoration, Cultural Work, and Social Services.
