Reutlingen University

Reutlingen University is one of Germany’s leading universities, offering international academic programmes with close ties to industry and commerce. On our campus we have around 5,800 students spread across five different Schools: Applied Chemistry, Engineering, ESB Business School, Informatics, and Textiles & Design. Professors, Visiting Lecturers and administrative and technical staff guide these talented young people along their academic path.

We offer 43 degree programmes at Bachelor’s and Master’s level, in which we train the top executives of the future. At the same time it is very important to us to support our students’ personal development and to ensure that they become specialists and managers for whom social responsibility is second nature.

For many years we have regularly been positioned at or near the top of numerous university league tables, reflecting the high standards of our programmes and the top-class academic education they provide. All our degree programmes are accredited with internationally respected agencies.

Cooperation with the business world, close contacts to industry, and joint teaching and research networks all ensure that we offer the best possible combination of theory and practice.

What is more, Reutlingen University wishes to promote the principle of life-long learning. The “Knowledge Foundation” offers professional people the chance to attend high-calibre continuing education courses.

Reutlingen University was founded in 1855 as a College of Weaving and Textiles. Throughout its history, one of the defining characteristics of the University has always been its international dimension. Whilst in the early days there were just a small number of engineers who came to Reutlingen from other countries, nowadays Reutlingen University cooperates with more than 140 partner universities world-wide. 20 per cent of our student body has an international background and comes from 90 different countries. In return, every semester around 600 Reutlingen students go abroad.
