Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau
(Technische Hochschule Wildau)
Wildau (near Berlin), Germany
The Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau (TH Wildau) is a modern, excellently equipped and outward-looking university which has grown rapidly since being founded in 1991. TH Wildau offers a wide range of technical and engineering degree courses, as well as business, computer science and legal ones, both at bachelor and master level. Due to its particular focus on research, based on close contacts to research institutes and industry in the Berlin-Brandenburg region, the TH Wildau has developed a hands-on and practical approach to its scientific and academic work. Two research institutes are active on campus, one in the area of life sciences and biomedical technologies, the other in the area of material development and productions. The research staff is also involved in the development of innovative products and processes, especially in the areas of telematics, optical technologies and photonics, transport and logistics, and management and law. Digitalisation and Entrepreneurship have been recognized as a key issue and are now a priority in both research and teaching. The Venture Innovation Lab that encourages everyone at the university to try out and develop new ideas is a practical illustration of the entrepreneurial spirit that has flourished in Wildau in recent years. In this space creative approaches are employed to promote strategic and innovative processes, helping start-ups to develop.
