Program Description:

About BUW
Founded in 1972, the University of Wuppetal (BUW) is still young. Its twin goals are academic excellence in its individual disciplines and the consistent development of the interface between these disciplines and the world of practical experience – in a word, the transfer of knowledge and technological know-how. With a combination of disciplines that is somewhat unconventional for a German university, BUW offers interesting possibilities – for example in subject combinations for teaching degrees, in interdisciplinary cooperation between the Faculties of Engineering and Economics, or in the field of Safety Engineering, where BUW's degree program is unique in Germany. The university's reputation as a force in business and industry goes beyond its role in regional economics.
