About Hof University
Founded in 1994, our university offers a very attractive study environment with its modern architecture and its state-of-the-art classrooms, laboratories, and dormitories. You will receive a first-class, hands-on education here. As a practice-oriented university of applied sciences with integrated internships in all programmes, the employability of our graduates is the main focus of our teaching.
We offer more than 40 modern Bachelor's and Master's programmes in business, computer science, and engineering as well as in interdisciplinary and innovative sciences. Students with at least one year of professional experience find exciting further education opportunities completely in the English language at Hof University Graduate School.
Strong practice orientation
All professors have a strong academic background as well as practical experience in industry. Teaching is based on innovative methods to convey application-oriented knowledge (e.g. projects with industry, site visits, involvement of company representatives). As a result, our graduates are ideally prepared for the domestic and international labour markets.
Intensive personal support
We are well known for our friendly study atmosphere. An excellent student-lecturer ratio allows for frequent and personal contact between students and professors and an active exchange of ideas. Students receive intensive personal support during their studies and benefit from numerous services, such as orientation weeks, social integration events, and housing support.
The university’s outlook is extremely international, with more than 130 partner universities all over the world. About twenty percent of students come from abroad, creating a truly multinational atmosphere.
The university's four research institutes concentrate on information systems, biopolymers, and material sciences as well as water and energy management. The guiding principles for our research are practice-orientation, internationalisation and resource efficiency (focusing on indoor climate systems / water).
