The specialists of tomorrow need intercultural skills. The portal 'Study and Work International – from Bavaria to the world' supports Bavarian students in obtaining practical experience abroad. Together with Bertram Brossardt, CEO of the Association of Bavarian Business e.V. (vbw), and Science State Secretary Bernd Sibler, Professor Uta M. Feser, Chairwoman of the Association of the Bavarian Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS), and Professor Karl Stoffel, Director of hochschule dual, launched the information campaign on the 10th of October 2016.
650 new students will start their studies during the 2016/2017 winter semester at HNU. As a result, a total of around 3,900 students are enrolled at HNU. It's not only students that are new to Neu-Ulm this winter term, though, as HNU expands its course offering with the introduction of two new Master's degree programmes.
International HNU project completed successfully
Three semesters, two countries, one Master's degree programme.
A joint project run by HNU students with refugees, representatives of the cities of Ulm and Neu-Ulm and the Neu-Ulm administrative district promotes linking and integration: Supported by the city of Ulm's Department of Surveying and by the Integration and Equality Office of the Neu-Ulm District Administrator's Office, they created a map of both cities with relevant contact points and useful facilities that refugees and migrants need to get settled.
Prospective students can apply for the Business Intelligence and Business Analytics and International Enterprise Information Management programmes of the HNU until 15 October 2016. Graduates of the two programmes, which include one semester at international universities, will have Masters of Science (M.Sc.).
Planning an appointment without having to actively search for open time slots – the MeetMe web application, developed by HNU students, promises to do just that. The software won the international Student Contest on Software Engineering (SCORE) in Texas. The final was part of the International Conference on Software Engineering, the world’s largest and most important conference in this field.
TechCity, an industrial and science park in Sanhe City near Beijing in China, is scheduled to be up and running in 10 years. This innovative project for the future is actively supported by the Ulm/Neu-Ulm Educational and Economic Region. Prominent representatives from China signed cooperation agreements with HNU, the Ulm Innovation Region and the Association of Baden-Württemberg Technology and Incubation Centres.
HNU celebrates the laying of the foundation stone of the second HNU building with 150 guests from academia, business and politics. HNU President Professor Uta M. Feser lays the stone together with Dr. Ludwig Spaenle, Bavarian Minister of Education and Culture, Science and Art to officially open the start of construction.
From 6 June 2016, the HNU and the Ulm University of Applied Sciences will offer a joint German course for refugees who wish to apply for a place at one of the two universities of applied sciences. Applicants must apply by 10 May 2016.
