Since being founded in 1997 and admitting its first students in 1998, the university has developed into a future-oriented educational establishment: State-of-the-art technologies, professors and lecturers with practical experience plus modern study programmes which meet the requirements of the future labour market guarantee a high standard of scientific training.
Particular importance is attached to research and development at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences. Interaction with research partners can take place on many levels. In addition to research services commissioned directly by customers, co-operative alliances in publicly or privately sponsored research projects are also conceivable. Due to their short processing times, diploma theses are also a welcome and successful instrument in the transfer between the university and industry in the case of minor research and development tasks.
