Dresden University of Applied Sciences (HTW) was founded in 1992 in Dresden, Germany. It is one of the largest universities in Dresden that specializes in degree programmes in a wide range of fields. The school delivers bachelor and master degree programmes in civil engineering / architecture; electrical engineering; as well as informatics and product design; machine engineering; and business administration. Ever since its foundation, the university has aimed to provide its students with the best possible education, in order to prepare them for a global, high-level management position. Graduates of Dresden University of Applied Sciences normally find employment shortly after graduating, as they are well-rounded scholars who gained valuable knowledge through studying at this excellent school. The degree programmes consist of numerous subjects that are unique and a bit unusual for higher education in Saxony, amongst those are for example agriculture, horticulture, landscape planning and development, environmental monitoring analysis, as well as cartography. The university is home to 8 faculties, 170 academic staff members and over 5,000 students who come from near and far (many come from outside of Germany) to get a well-structured education at HTW. Even though it is a large university, it is still able to encourage personal dialogue throughout individual courses, making it a splendid learning environment. Prospective students who want to gain a top education, while not having to pay any tuition fees, should definitely consider studying at HTW. Most of the study programmes are in German, the exceptions being: International Business(B.A.); Electrical Engineering, as well as 3 Master degree programmes. The school also offers double-degree programmes in cooperation with its many partner universities abroad; enabling students to broaden their horizons while gaining professional qualifications that are recognized throughout the world. The campus is very modern- it offers state-of-the-art facilities and numerous laboratories for teaching purposes.
I had the pleasure of being part of HTW Dresden for a year and the experience could not be better. The university was super well located, next to the financial center of the city so the communications were very good. I must also say that usually, Dresden has a wonderful transport system that works 24 hours a day. In addition, both the building and the university classrooms were very well located and had a wonderful dining room (Mensa) with very good food and a very good price.
On the other hand and in terms of the educational level of the university it seems very good. The teachers have a high level and are very demanding what makes it necessary to give your best every day to get good results.
It also has a wide variety of subjects and in some of them you have a direct relationship with companies, so it makes teaching practical and helps to introduce you to the world of work since these experiences are real and therefore very enriching.
For all these kinds of things, I highly recommend this university as I believe it has a wonderful level of education and also in an environment and a city with thousands of students that makes the life experience comforting.
This university is perfect to study international business. The number of people per class is perfect so there’s not agglomeration of students. Also the professors are very kind and helpful so you can count with them if you need some tutorials or reach them for questions. About the facilities is very confortable the uni, even with some old buildings the classes are very good equipped and easy to get to them.
The university has also a canteen with a very good prices for having lunch, so that makes the logistics very easy.
Also the university has very good agreements with local companies so you can have some modules mixed between a kind of internship and normal lessons that make the learning much more productive.
I truly recommend this university because I think is perfect to study international business and also the city is pretty nice for a student. Dresden has very good connections around the city so that makes very easy move around.
I did enjoy my exchange semester in HTW Dresden which was full of practical excursions. The staff is very helpful and cooperative while the majority of educational materials are industry biased and practical driven.View more
