Berlin's Largest University of Applied Sciences

Student, sitting on the lawn with a laptop, on the campus TreskowalleeThe "Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft"/ HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences is the largest university of applied sciences in Berlin and offers an array of study programmes. Out of Germany's top ten universities of applied sciences, it ranks seventh with a student body of nearly 10,000.

Our Trump: Diversity

Only a small number of study programmes still offer a German "Diplom" degree; by 2007 graduates of all programmes will be awarded internationally recognised Bachelor's and Master's degrees. Programmes are short, compact and practice-oriented. Our good rankings verify the high standard of our study courses. Together with other key qualifications, foreign language training is an integral part of an HTW student's experience. A well-stocked library, state-of-the-art computer centre and a broad range of sporting activities ensure that every aspect of student life is accommodated.

Numerous Awards

These include awards for restructuring its internal administration, providing an extensive range of training opportunities, offering consultation and other services for both small and medium-sized businesses and business start-ups, and for pursuing its commitment to ensuring gender equality.

Two Locations

At the entrance of Campus WilhelminenhofThe HTW is domiciled at two instead of previously five locations since winter semester 2009/10: on the campus Treskowallee in Karlshorst and on the campus Wilhelminenhof in Oberschöneweide. Both locations can look back on a time full of history: In the past, pupils of the Realgymnasium and Lyzeum Karlshorst strolled in the listed buildings on the campus Treskowallee. Later the prospective executive of the GDR learned there. The campus Wilhelminenhof was a traditional industrial area, where the AEG and the Kabelwerk Oberspree produced their electrical products.
