Anhalt University of Applied Sciences

Anhalt University’s clear strategic approach is convincing because it consistently brings together science, innovation and teaching. In Bernburg, Dessau, and Köthen, we provide innovative research and teaching at an international level. In addition, we offer a high quality of life and studies for nearly 8,000 students, 2,000 of whom contribute to the University’s international flair. They’re well looked after by almost 150 professors.
Anhalt University of Applied Sciences is one of the country’s most research-intensive universities. Since its establishment in 1991 it has become a major technological science centre in the Anhalt region. It drives innovation with its application-oriented research and development and, as an “Innovative Hochschule”, intensifies its transfer to the regional industry.
