The Fachhochschule Wedel University of Applied Sciences is a well-known private university with approximately 1,300 enrolled students. Our institution is located in the Hamburg Metropolitan Area in Northern Germany.
We steadily adopt current developments in the economy and integrate these new standards into the curriculum. This guarantees the excellent quality of our academic programmes, which in turn helps our graduates in finding jobs easily. In fact, 90% of our Bachelor graduates have already signed a job contract by the time they finish their studies.
FH Wedel University of Applied Sciences maintains close connections to multinational companies. The friends association, the Wedeler Hochschulbund e. V. (WHB), assembles more than 200 well-known companies such as AIRBUS, Panasonic or Hapag-Lloyd as members. Co-operations are established via internships, theses and joint development projects. Following their graduation, our students are often employed by the companies in which students have already done internships or their theses.
We aim to provide our students with an education that will yield excellent job and career opportunities once they graduate. For this purpose, our efforts in teaching extend beyond factual and methodical knowledge – we strive for our students to develop the character traits necessary for positions of responsibility in companies, organisations, as well as administrative bodies.
The tuition that we offer comes in interdisciplinary and well-adjusted degree programmes in the fields of informatics, engineering, and business. All teaching strikes a balance between theoretical foundations, current developments, and practical application. As a privately run institution, we can provide a productive environment and a high level of care for each individual student.
The relationship between students, professors, assistants, and any other staff is one of partnership and respect. Independence is valued, as is the ability to work as a team. We benefit from co-operation with universities all over the world and welcome students and staff from foreign countries.
