Welcome to the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf

The University of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf, Germany (Fachhochschule Düsseldorf, FH D for short) was founded on 1 August 1971 by combining several renowned regional educational institutions. FH D started lectures with 120 professors and around 2200 students under the leadership of the founding rector, Professor Hans Albert Klüfer.
Today, the University is one of the largest of its kind in the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia and offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary range of subjects. Approximately 8000 students are taught in 34 degree programmes in 7 faculties/departments by nearly 200 professors and around 100 assistant staff members.

The educational and research emphasis at FH D has a strong practical and interdisciplinary approach. The university guarantees that course contents are connected to practical work necessities since they are based on extensive professional experiences in commerce, industry and research of all our professors and lecturers. Thus, practical courses are indeed an integral component of the university's study programmes. In addition, FH D has contact with companies and institutions that offer internships and part-time jobs in Germany and abroad, particularly in engineering, social and cultural sciences and business studies. Mentors supervise students before, during and after the internships.


The university curriculum is strongly concentrated on certain fields: FH D offers networked teaching and research in the interdisciplinary areas of design, technology, the social sector and business studies cross-sectioned with media, communication and IT. The emphasis is put on architecture, design, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, process engineering, media, social and cultural sciences and business studies. All degrees which can bei obtained at FH D are Bachelor or Master degrees. This enables our graduates to be compared in an international environment and our students to be more mobile whilst guaranteeing a shorter time of study with the opportunity to complete a degree in just six semesters.

The University has around 80 European and around 30 international university agreements and actively promotes the international exchange of students and lecturers by participating in congresses and summer schools. We advise and organise study and internships abroad as well as communicate and offer many other opportunities for advancement.
