About University of Augsburg
The University of Augsburg was established in 1970. The University of Augsburg campus is one of the most congenial places to study in Germany. Situated near the city centre of Augsburg, the campus is spacious without being overwhelming. The modern buildings, functional and yet architecturally appealing, blend into a landscaped park with grassy areas, a lake, fountains and several sculptures by contemporary artists.
The concentration of the academic buildings on one site simplifies the day-to-day working of the university while encouraging communication. The individual faculties, the administration offices (including the Student Service Centre), the refectory, cafeterias, bars, and the libraries are all conveniently close together. This is a place where people study, teach, carry out research, and live. There is a sense of what “university” really means: a sense of community, cooperation and solidarity between the lecturers and the researchers on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the students who benefit from the research through the teaching they receive.
Young, open, international
Today, Augsburg has a population of around 265,000. In addition to commerce and administration, the main employers in the city include a number of leading German, European and international technological companies, such as Fujitsu Siemens, EADS, KUKA, MAN and the international paper group, UPM Kymmene, the successor to the old Augsburg paper company Haindl. The university has also decisively contributed to the emergence of environmental research and environmental engineering as future-oriented focal points for both the city and the region. Research projects in this field have resulted in close links between the University of Augsburg and numerous partners with interests in the promotion of environmental science, both at local and state levels and in the private sector.
