Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg

The Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg (OTH Regensburg) guarantees the best starting conditions for a successful career. With 11,500 students, it is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in Germany. More than 50 practice-oriented bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in the fields of technology, business, social affairs, health, architecture and design are convincing due to their high quality in teaching and research. The special focus is on technical study programs – almost 70 percent of the students are enrolled in mathematical, scientific and engineering subjects.
At the same time, economics and social science departments play a major role in the self-image of the Technical University. The resulting interdisciplinary and diverse study program is supplemented by a broad spectrum of supplementary studies and elective courses that impart orientation knowledge and intercultural competencies.


The research profile of OTH Regensburg is oriented in applied and practice-oriented research. The research activities are based on the following five main themes: energy and mobility, information and communication, life sciences and ethics, production and systems, and buildings and infrastructure. Sensors and digitization serve as cross-sectional topics. At the same time, the guiding themes as megatrends of the future are of particular importance for the region, as they support the regional economic structure and its competitiveness. Institutionally, the research activities are represented by various research structures: Regensburg Center, competence centers, OTH research clusters and laboratories.
On the other hand, research activities focus on the economic structures of the Regensburg region. Through cooperative research projects with industry, OTH Regensburg generates innovative impulses for the region on several levels – with new processes and technologies, the increase of competences and the potential for business start-ups.
