The origins of Coburg University in Germany is 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).
At the Coburg University all undergraduate programs include a required internship. Project work – oftentimes across disciplinary boundaries – is part of student life. And seminars and projects with companies and social institutions are common components of our programs of study.
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.

Overall it was a nice experience, got opportunity to learn a lot
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.
Even though National Taipei University is not a top university in Taiwan, the overall education quality and sources are excellent. Many of my professors applied practical experiences in the classes and classmates are helpful and nice as well.
