Who we are
Reutlingen University - that is around 5,000 students from over 80 countries. At our five schools - ESB Business School, School of Informatics, School of Life Sciences, School of Engineering and TEXOVERSUM School of Textiles - we offer a variety of courses in more than 40 degree programmes. We aim to prepare our students for future challenges, both professionally and personally, and we are committed to shaping the future. Together.
Where modernity meets tradition
Reutlingen University was founded as a weaving school in 1855 following an initiative by industry, the city of Reutlingen and the Kingdom of Württemberg. It has since undergone significant change and developed from a state school of engineering to a nationally renowned university of applied sciences.
Our distinguishing features
Our campus is constantly transforming. We live a diverse and cosmopolitan culture and offer students an international and practice-based learning environment. The most important guideline here is our defined values, and our comprehensive range of courses is geared toward students from various walks of life.
We are driven by values such as internationalism, diversity and sustainability. These principles are close to our hearts and guide our daily action.
Research at Reutlingen University is conducted under the roof of the Reutlingen Research Institute (RRI). Application-oriented, practice-oriented and closely interlinked with teaching, it also focuses on megatrends such as AI, digitalisation and climate protection.
Quality in teaching
We guarantee our students high-quality and comprehensive teaching. To this end, we define innovative quality goals and implement measures to continuously improve them.
We believe that pursuing a degree must also be possible with children or relatives in need of care. That is why Reutlingen University is an active member of the network "Familie in der Hochschule" (Family in Higher Education).
