Mainz University of Applied Sciences

One profile - many faces

Practical and theoretically sound, international and future-oriented - studying at Mainz University of Applied Sciences prepare students for their careeres and their future in the best sense of the word. We are known for the interdependence of teaching, research and practice. The cooperation between the university and industry is particularly close here: the on-the-job degree programs alone cultivate 450 cooperative partnerships, mainly in the business sector of the Rhine-Main region.

It's a win-win situation: The business community benefits from innovative ideas from the university, and vice versa, the students benefit from the concrete objectives of the companies. This can be seen, among other things, in the introduction of international and future-oriented degree programs such as: media design, international business and media, IT & management. In spite of demanding topics, studying here remains manageable in terms of time. The focus is always on the students: They benefit from the familiar atmosphere, small groups and project-oriented learning.

From research to technology transfer

In applied research and development, we do internationally recognized top-class work in many areas. This is clearly demonstrated by numerous third-party-funded projects and patent developments. With new focal points of our work, we continue to set innovative accents in research and development - which we then implement with cooperation partners from business, science, culture and industry.

Nine institutes with their own focal points of work have emerged from the schools at our university to this day; the pioneers among them have been working independently and successfully for more than ten years.

In order to promote exchange with external partners from public institutions and the business sector, the university's central transfer office supports all partners involved in research and development projects.
