Application-oriented study

practical semester completed outside of the university forms an integral part of almost every degree programme. In addition, the comprehensive dual system options offer students the opportunity to combine their studies with intensive practical phases or even vocational training.

Inclusion of research and development

research-intensive university of applied sciences in Bavaria. The Ohm is home to some 150 well-equipped laboratories, which work in close collaboration with partners from the commercial and industrial sectors, as well as from professional associations, to carry out applied research. This also benefits the students, who are able to get involved with laboratory operations at an early stage of their studies. The global “U-Multirank” ranking is testament to the Ohm’s ability to convert applied research into practical applications. The Ohm ranked as the best German university for “Transfer of applied research to practical applications” and places third out of 1500 universities worldwide (2017 ranking). Progress is driven by the research and development activities of the numerous institutes and competence centers at the Ohm.

A comprehensive range of services

service offers and counseling services. Whether it be the Career Service, Student Counseling, the Teaching and Learning Center (LeKo), the Business Development Office, counseling for inventors, or the University Service for Family, Equality, and Occupational Health (HSFG) – experts can be found throughout the university and they will be happy to advise you.

Intensive support

At Nuremberg Tech, the ratio of students to professors is relatively low. In addition, student tutors and small project groups and workshops ensure that students receive intensive specialist support during their studies. Lectures delivered to large numbers of students in huge lecture theatres are the exception rather than the rule at Nuremberg Tech.

Outstanding career opportunities

Career Service on the subject of starting a career play a significant part in this.
