Nuremberg Tech offers varied opportunities for cooperation with businesses

Commercial enterprises form one of Nuremberg Tech’s key partner categories. Long-term collaboration with mostly small- and medium-sized enterprises provides mutual gain. Application-based research and teaching in particular benefit from the university’s close contact with companies.

Degree programmes & teaching

Degree programmes and teaching at Nuremberg Tech are distinguished by the fact that degree programmes are geared towards regional professional profiles and competence fields. Dual system options and a compulsory practical semester are intended to provide our students with the ability to think from a business perspective and understand current issues. The rewards for our successful cooperation are favourable employment prospects for our graduates and highly qualified career-starters.

Applied research

Our institutes and Faculties work in research partnerships with the business community in many fields. These collaborative research partnerships enable the company to develop innovations, while the research institutions of Nuremberg Tech are given valuable incentives to conduct their application-orientated research.

If you are interested in a scientific collaboration, partnership, contract research or similar, our team in the Research Services office would be happy to advise you. Further information is available here.
