The University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt, or FHWS, is one of the largest applied science universities in Bavaria with more than 9,300 students and over 200 professors. FHWS was established in 1971 and currently has two successful locations in the cities of Würzburg and Schweinfurt. Since 1971, FHWS has had offices in Würzburg and Schweinfurt, two cities in the Lower Franconia administrative district, which is located in the Free State of Bavaria's northern region. Major German cities like Munich and Frankfurt am Main, both of which have an international airport, are close by from this location. Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Poland, and Switzerland are all nearby neighbors in Europe. More than 50 bachelor's and master's degree programs are available via the 10 faculties of FHWS. Technology, economics, social sciences, computer sciences, visual design, and language are all topics covered in the comprehensive and futuristic programs.. As part of its strategy for differentiating itself, FHWS has established the goal of becoming an international institution where students from many countries can study and learn alongside one another. There, English-taught bachelor's programs are provided as Twin-Programs that are nearly identical to their German-taught counterparts. As a result, during their academic career, students have the option to switch between the degree program taught in English and the one taught in German. Additionally, FHWS students can study abroad for a semester through a global network of about 200 international partner institutions. On 1 January 2023 University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) have become a Technical University of Applied Sciences. The new name is Technical University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS).
