FHWS was founded in 1971 with two locations which are successfull to this day - in the the cities of Würzburg and Schweinfurt.

FHWS's ten faculties offer more than 40 bachelor's and master's degree programmes. The programmes cover technology, economics, social sciences, computer sciences, visual design and language. Studying at FHWS is characterised by a particular orientation towards application. A practical semester, project work and a high share of practical work in laboratories and seminars underline the importance of a practice-oriented approach at FHWS. Students are being perfectly prepared for their future working life and the demands of the labour market.

Research

At universities of applied sciences research is crucial to be able to teach the state of the art in technology and science and new technologies and scientific developments following the research activities of our professors are implemented into teaching. Research activities are undertaken not only in cooperation close to practice with regional companies and institutes, but also in national and international research projects. In many FHWS laboratories students have the opportunity to apply to practice and intensify skills and knowledge previously acquired theoretically.

Internationalisation

FHWS focuses on internationalisation as its differentiation strategy and has set itself the objective of being an international university where students from many different nations learn and study together. To accomplish this, FHWS has introduced an award-winning model of degree programmes unique in Germany. There, bachelor's programmes taught in English are offered as Twin-Programmes that are basically identical to their German equivalent. Thus students have the opportunity to switch between the degree programme taught in English and the one taught in German during their course of studies. In addition, FHWS is part of a worldwide network of about 140 international partner institutions where FHWS-students can do a semester abroad.
