Neu Ulm University of Applied Sciences

Neu-Ulm, Germany
At the Neu-Ulm University, we focus on the individual student. Small study groups make it possible for lecturers to give individual and intensive guidance; this personal communication helps create a less formal atmosphere and at the same time promotes interaction, a characteristic which is also found in the work between students.



The HNU was founded in 1994 as a branch of Kempten University of Applied Sciences. At the time it had 104 students. It has been independent since October 1998. In 2008 it changed its name from Fachhochschule Neu-Ulm to its present-day Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Neu-Ulm (Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences).


The content of our degree programmes has been discussed with larger companies and SME and is of high practical relevance. Our lecturers have a track record in leadership positions.

An optimal addition to the studies are internship semesters; these are made possible through our close contact to regional and national industry. In addition, these intensify the exchange of knowledge, skills and technology between the HNU and the business world – a fact which benefits both students and companies.


Working with business enterprises and with private and public research institutions, we set out on a systematic scientific search for knowledge. In this, the focus is on research and development collaboration aimed at applications geared to business and social needs.


The Career Service of the Alumni & CampusClub keeps close contact with companies and former students of the HNU. Using this network we can offer excellent support in searching for internships or a job.

Students can use our board for jobs and internships (in German) to explore the current offers and select them according to different parameters.

Businesses can place advertisements free of charge and recruit future employees for their company.
