Discover diversity, drive innovation, shape the future

Discover a higher education institution offering unique opportunities

Discover the Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt! A place where knowledge transfer, research, and creativity merge into one. With our emphasised focus on future- and practice-orientated teaching, applied and innovative research and sustainability, we educate the competent and responsible professionals of tomorrow. Immerse yourself in a higher education culture characterised by opportunities, teamwork, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

We offer more than 50 bachelor's and master's degree programme from the fields of technology, business and economics, social sciences, computer science, design, and languages. Our excellent and future-oriented degree programmes offer students a practice-relevant education that meets the technical, societal, and economic challenges of our time.

Our TWIN degree programmes offer intercultural experiences. The English-taught bachelor's degree programmes are conceptualised as a twin to the already existing German-taught bachelor's programmes. They can be completed in German or English and thus best prepare our students for the globalised job market.

Within the framework of the hosted programs, our students complete their studies at THWS and also at the GJU in Jordan. With this cooperation, which is currently offered in the bachelor's degree programmes in Hydrogen Technology and Social Work, we are positioning ourselves as an international educational institution that promotes intercultural skills.

With the Hightech Agenda Bavaria, the Free State creates optimal conditions for our focus on artificial intelligence, robotics, and hydrogen technology. Thanks to the investments in research centers, we are able to further develop our considerable interdisciplinary competence and thus to enable applied research and knowledge transfer.

With our research focuses and our technology transfer centers, located at other locations than THWS, we connect research, companies, and the society. With this, we promote sustainable development and the future potential of the region of Lower Franconia and give our students the opportunity to participate in the latest state of technology and science.

To us as a family-friendly higher education institution, the reconcilliation of work and family is particularly important. We actively support THWS members with their familiy commitments. 

To us, life-long learning is non-negotiable. That is why our Campus for Professional Development offers extra-occupational, practice-related continued training regarding digitisation, health, social sciences as well as business and management.
