Our Motivation

Reutlingen University is one of the leading universities of applied sciences (HAWs) in the field of international and business-related academic education. Together with our 5,000 students, our goal is to shape their path to a successful, sustainable and diverse future.

Shaping the future

What will life be like in the future? And what will change for each and every one of us? We too are deeply concerned with these questions. That is why our professors at Reutlingen University explore these issues with our students. From digital work models to artificial intelligence and printable meat substitutes, together we want to shape the world of tomorrow.

Sustainable development & climate protection

Climate change and the associated scarcity of resources are the central issues of our time. In our globalised world, our actions not only affect our immediate surroundings, but also other regions of the world and future generations. We want to work on these issues with our students because we all have an impact on what the future will look like.

Internationalism is an integral part of our university life. Accordingly, Reutlingen University cooperates with more than 200 partner universities worldwide and approximately 20% of our students are international. Every semester, many students also go abroad to study or do an internship.

Together for success

We support students in their everyday life by providing them with numerous (study-related) services and extracurricular course offers . First-year students, for instance, receive important preparatory information on what to expect from their studies during the "staRT Wochen". Naturally, we also provide students with a variety of training courses from different areas to ensure we continously work toward our common success.

Innovative ideas need room to take shape and develop. Hence, it is very important for us to support young entrepreneurs and their business ideas, and many dedicated professors are here to accompany them. All these activities are managed by the Center for Entrepreneurship which gives students an insight into all topics related to start-up founding.
