On August 1st, 1971, the University of Applied Sciences (HSD for short) was established by merging many prominent regional educational institutions. HSD provides a wide variety of disciplines and is currently one of the biggest applied science universities in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Nearly 200 academics instruct more than 11000 students in 40 degree programs across seven faculties. The academic program of HSD offers instruction and research in the interdisciplinary fields of design, technology, the social sector, and business studies. The focus is on business studies, media, social sciences, and cultural studies in addition to mechanical and process engineering, electrical engineering, and information technology. The only degrees offered at HSD are bachelor's and master's degrees. HSD actively encourages international interchange by taking part in conferences and summer schools and has over 160 partner universities. They arrange for students to study and intern overseas, as well as many other chances for growth. The globalization of all student, academic, and administrative matters is one of the six main goals of HSD. One of the key factors in promoting an international campus community is the exchange of students, professors, and administrative personnel. At the same time, international content in study programs is a crucial component. The most important aspects and goals of the steps taken to achieve internationalization are outlined in the recently established internationalization strategy.
