The university was founded in 1886 as Königliche Seedampf-Maschinistenschule (Royal School for Naval Steam Machinists). The FUAS primarily educated marine engineers and officers until 1975. Over the last 30 years, the study program has grown to include all major engineering and information technology disciplines, as well as a business administration school. Today, the FUAS focuses on nautical engineering, communication technology, biotechnology, and renewable energy engineering. This focus is supported by the state of Schleswig-Holstein, which is one of the leading European regions in the application of renewable energy and environmental technologies, with wind energy and biogas accounting for roughly one-third of its electricity consumption. The lecturers are easily accessible to the approximately 3500 students on the green Flensburg campus of short distances - both before and after the class times. The teachers are also very close to practice and business needs. The practical experience that the professors bring with them is directly transferred to the practical training of our students, which is why they call themselves a university of applied sciences. FUAS is merged with the University of Flensburg (Universität Flensburg). The Auditorium Maximum lecture hall, the central library, a large park area, student residences, a kindergarten, a sports and fitness center, and the canteen (Mensa), as well as several small cafeterias and a student's pub, are all part of the infrastructure. The campus is about one mile from the main railway station, and the beach is about five miles away. Within the ERASMUS program, several bi-national study programs are established in collaboration with nearby European universities, and also with many well reputed overseas universities in UK, Africa, as well as other regions of the world.
