University of Applied Sciences in Neubrandenburg


Since it was founded in 1991, the University of Applied Sciences in Neubrandenburg has developed into an academic centre and driving force in teaching, research, and continuing education for the region. Currently, approximately 2,200 young people study in 19 faculties offering a total of 33 Bachelor and Master degrees. This university has developed a unique and distinct profile in the areas of research, development and knowledge transfer since its founding in 1991, a profile that is characterised by its especially practical and applied orientation as well as close partnerships with both industry and science.

In recent years the University has drawn on its disciplines to establish the research focus areas ‘Sustainable Structural Shifts and Reconstruction of Rural Regions’ and ‘Health and Nutrition’. The aim of expanding the research focus areas is to continue to strategically strengthen the role of the University as a scientific facility in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for major scientific and economic projects. An example of this is the leading role played the Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences in the pioneering field ‘Nutrition’ that is being driven by the Strategic Council for Economics and Science of the Ministry for Economics, Construction and Tourism.
