In 1919, the main building of Bauhaus-Universität Weimar became the home of the State Bauhaus, the most influential design school of the twentieth century. Together with their students, exceptional experts from various disciplines and countries have revolutionized education. They have had a long-lasting impact on the design of the living environment by introducing new types of art, technology, and science. They created modernity as an answer to the burning questions of their time's art, culture, and society. Since its renaming in 1996, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has been an international university based in the unique cultural city of Weimar. The university is a living institution, not a museum. It refers to the great role model for using modern methods to find answers to central questions in art and culture, technology, science, and society. This includes a critical examination of the historical Bauhaus and its impact history, which has been a part of the contradictory history of progress for nearly 100 years. To meet this requirement, we carefully profiled our university. With faculties and areas of study such as Architecture and Urban Studies, Art and Design, Civil Engineering and Media, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has a distinctive identity within the German university landscape. Today, the University offers a broad range of courses in fine art, design, visual communication, media design, media studies, computer science, architecture, civil engineering, materials science, processing technology, environment, and management. The term "Bauhaus" represents curiosity, openness, creativity, and internationality. At Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, there is a passion for experimentation and excellence, and it is from this base that they run transdisciplinary projects and collaborations in research and education.
