The Ernst-Abbe-University of Applied Sciences Jena was founded on 1 October 1991 as one of the first institutions of higher education of its kind in the new Laender. Short periods of studying and a practical orientation complement the education at traditional universities and technical universities perfectly well. Currently, the eight departments of the Jena University of Applied Sciences offer 32 Bachelor and Master programs. About 4,900 students are registered.


Research and development activities at the UAS Jena are inter-disciplinary and application-oriented. R&D projects are carried out in close co-operation with industry, institutes and public services.
