The origins of Coburg University are a private school for “civil architecture”, which was founded in Coburg in 1814 by the ducal architect, Friedrich Streib (1781-1852). The purpose of the school was to prepare the builders of that time for the title of “Meister” (master craftsman). After the death of Friedrich Streib the school continued as the Ducal School of Architecture. 


At the very core of science and education are curiosity and the joy of exploration. The wider the field of vision, the more there is to discover: The Coburg University is doing its part to ensure that students can develop to their full potential. The Academic Center for Sciences and Humanities offers a wide range of lectures and seminars in various academic fields, such as philosophy, history, natural and human sciences, and languages. 


As a University of Applied Sciences, Coburg University focuses on application-oriented research. We aim to use the results of our research to solve concrete, practical issues. The application-oriented research contributes significantly to the creation of technical, economic, social, and societal innovations. Revenue from third-party funds of Coburg University have risen steadily in recent years. In 2015 our third-party funds totaled 5.96 million euros. All academic departments of the university take part in projects funded by such revenue.  These projects range from collaborations with companies as part of a master's thesis to large research projects with more than a dozen partners.

Student Reviews

Merna abdelgaleil rated 2 out of 5 stars

well, it was not that good as I expected better quality and more practical things .. as fashion and design require more activities and projects to enhance your creativity. Also it had a high fees and wasn't affordable.
