Mainz University of Applied Sciences is a young university. It has been independent since 1996 and has been identified in its logo as a "University of Applied Sciences" since 1999. But the origins go all the way back to 1757, the year in which the elector of Mainz decided to found an academy of painting and sculpture.
In our three schools of Design, Engineering and Business, we offer a solid foundation of knowledge for optimum professional development - with a wide range of specialization options and scope for interdisciplinary cooperation. We maintain excellent contacts within the regional economy and to public institutions and are networked with more than 500 companies in the Rhine-Main metropolitan region.

The diversity of professional competences is combined in the three schools of engineering, design and business. In addition, in the past years, the establishment of seven independent institutes, some of which have been in existence for more than 10 years, and other focal points of our work have set new standards in the field of applied research and development, which are implemented in collaboration with a large number of cooperation partners from scientific and research sectors, museums and industry.

What I liked about my study programme was the diversity among the class members. We were nearly 80 students from all over the world and our days were never boring; We always had something to learn from everyone. The international office did a great job in organising events, to make our incoming easier. This is how we got to know each other and get more closer together.
Better education than job is best for good option
It was an unforgettable experience studying in Hochschule Mainz for one semester as an exchange student from Poland. Another type of educational system, integration into international community, etc.
