Back in 1963, when Aalen University of Applied Sciences (Aalen UAS) was first established, around 5 to 6 percent of a school year in Germany went on to study at university. Today, it’s 54 percent. This increase is significant and one of today’s challenges. As a regional university, Aalen UAS educates the highly qualified specialists who are crucial to local companies.


Aalen University’s research performance has highly scored for many years. The procurement of third party funds has been well established in our applied research projects, especially in Material Sciences, Optics and Laser Technology, Photonics, Casting Technology, Business Studies, Health Management, but also in various other fields.


Universities of applied sciences are very popular among students, in part because they give students numerous opportunities to combine their studies with practical experience in the real world of business. The transition from the academic to the working world is much smoother, as students are immediately operational. Today in Germany, more than 60% of all engineers and about 50% of all business and management graduates come from universities of applied sciences.
