Today there are around 3,600 students (as of winter semester 2018/2019), ensuring that the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau (“TH Wildau” for short) keeps its familiar atmosphere.

Education

Degree programmes at a university of applied sciences are very practically oriented. The practical orientation of our degree programmes and teaching is one of our distinctive characteristics. Students can carry out practical exercises and experiments with top-quality laboratory and computer technology. An optimal study environment allows creativity and enthusiasm for research to flourish.
