🏫About University of Applied Sciences Wurzburg Schweinfurt

Since its founding in 1971, Würzburg and Schweinfurt have been studying, teaching, researching, and working together. FHWS, however, has developed constantly over the last 50 years. FHWS was established by merging the Balthasar-Neumann-Polytechnic School of Lower Franconia in Würzburg, the "Höhere Wirtschaftsschule" (a business-oriented secondary school) of Würzburg and the "Werkkunstschule" (a business- and crafts-oriented secondary school) of Würzburg. FHWS is part of a worldwide network of about 200 international partner institutions where FHWS-students can do a semester abroad.

Digitalisation is changing the world of work and will gain further importance in future. FHWS is embracing this development by its digitalisation strategy. It includes a view outside, that is towards its studets and imparting the related competence, but also a view inside, that is promoting digitalisation within the organisational structure of FHWS.
Additionally, FHWS is a member of the Centre for Digital Innovations Mainfranken (ZDI) which supports and encourages digital business start-ups.

At universities of applied sciences research is crucial to be able to teach the state of the art in technology and science and new technologies and scientific developments following the research activities of our professors are implemented into teaching. Research activities are undertaken not only in cooperation close to practice with regional companies and institutes, but also in national and international research projects.
