Jena and the University of Applied Sciences

You find us in the middle of Europe: Jena is situated in Thuringia, the “Green Heart” of Germany.

The traditional old university town is a well-known center of high technology and, moreover, it is

situated in a unique, charming landscape

with lots of possibilities for different sporting

and cultural activites. About 100.000 people,

among them 26.000 students, live here.

Situated in Jena’s southwest, the University of

Applied Sciences is within easy reach of the

city centre. In fact, there are hardly any long

distances in Jena. The Campus at Jena’s Carl-

Zeiss-Promenade gets talked about, not only

because of its charming architectural design.

The Campus comprises all departments, administration,

the central library (which holds © FH Jena

240.000 volumes and offers patent search

services), all lecture halls, many seminar rooms and 124 superbly furnished laboratories, as well as

leisure-time facilities such as a gymnasium and exercise rooms. The list is completed by a cafeteria,

a new canteen and a hall of residence run by the Thuringian Student Services Association. In short,

the Campus offers everything needed for student life. The Jena University of Applied Sciences

currently has 4.901 students.

It was founded on 1st October 1991 as one of the first institutions of higher education of its kind

in the newly founded federal states of Germany. Short periods of studying and a practical orientation

complement the education at traditional universities and technical universities perfectly well.

Currently, the eight departments of the Jena University of Applied Sciences offer 36 Bachelor and

Master programs.

In the interest of a scientifically profound and practically oriented education, the university cooperates

with universities in Europe and beyond. There is also an intensive cooperation with the

industry: world-famous companies like Zeiss, Jenoptik, Siemens,

Bosch, and the industrial research institutions in Jena

represent modern technology, up-to-date management

and scientific innovation.

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Information

Technology of UAS Jena runs bachelor programmes in

Electrical Engineering / Automation Engineering, Communication

and Media Technology, Computer Engineering, Automation

Engineering / Information Engineering International

as well as the master programmes in System Design and

Space Electronics (in German). At the moment, nearly 450

students are enrolled in these programmes. In addition to

that, a mechatronics programme is offered jointly with the
