The Fachhochschule Wedel University of Applied Sciences gGmbH is one of the few private but non-profit universities of applied sciences in Germany. It is founded in 1948. Well-coordinated bachelor's and master's courses in computer science, technology, and business are among the available courses. Campus space measures 20,000 square meters. Here, 1,300 students use contemporary workshops, labs, and computer facilities. The dual study concept is an option for all courses. The FH Wedel University of Applied Sciences is a university of applied sciences, hence its research and teaching are more practical in nature than those at universities. Students who are also working students apply their knowledge through exercises, projects, or other activities. Since 1996, the university has been providing a semester abroad. It initially depended on collaboration with universities abroad. Later, new European nations were integrated through the Erasmus program. The institution presently collaborates with about 30 partner universities across the globe. Around 200 businesses collaborate especially closely with the Wedel University of Applied Sciences as Wedeler Hochschulbund eV (WHB) members. Through the Internship and Job Exchange, you are seeking for students and recent graduates for internships, theses, and permanent positions. They may also contribute their knowledge in lectures and presentations by illuminating them with examples from their day-to-day jobs. The FH Wedel collaborates with about 80 partner companies to offer dual study locations on a regular basis. Additionally, FH Wedel partners enable their own funding programs.
