Universities and colleges
You find us in the middle of Europe: Jena is situated in Thuringia, the “Green Heart” of Germany. The traditional old university town is a well-known center of high technology and, moreover, it is situated in a unique, charming landscape. About 100,000 people, among them 26,000 students, live here. The Jena University of Applied Sciences has 5,027 students.
It was founded on 1st October 1991 as one of the first institutions of higher education of its kind in the newly founded federal states of Germany. Short periods of studying and a practical orientation complement the education at traditional universities and technical universities perfectly well. Currently, the eight departments of the Jena University of Applied Sciences offer 36 Bachelor and Master programs.
In the interest of a scientifically profound and practically oriented education, the university cooperates with universities in Europe and beyond. There is also an intensive cooperation with the industry: world-famous companies like Zeiss, Jenoptik, Siemens, IBM, and the industrial research institutions in Jena represent modern technology, up-to-date management and scientific innovation.
