Innovation and diversity – the key features of the Berlin University of Applied Sciences, Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (HTW) Berlin. Comprising a student body of almost 11,000, it is the largest institution of its kind in Berlin.
With around 70 Bachelor’s and Master’s courses in Engineering, Economics, Information Technology, Culture and Design, the range of qualifications which we provide is impressive. As well as teaching in the classical disciplines of Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Business Administration, we also offer new, innovative qualifications in areas such as Facility Management, Business Economics and Policies and Game Design.
Enjoying an excellent national and international reputation as a leading centre of education, we have received a number of prizes including awards for the reform of our university management, our comprehensive training, guidance and service provision for small and medium-sized business and business start-ups; our dedication to equal opportunities as well the truly barrier-free nature of provision both in terms of physical access and mindsets.
Both compact and practice-oriented, our programme of study includes instruction in foreign languages and key skills. University rankings have consistently established us as one of the leading providers of a modern and professional education. A factor central to our consistent level of success is the maintenance of extensive international networks to medium-sized businesses, administrations, professional associations, research and educational institutions, as well as over 100 universities across the world. Our facilities include a well-stocked library, a modern computer centre and a diverse range of sporting activities.

The University of Applied Sciences Berlin would like to support this project through its program Master in Business Administration & Engineering (MBA&E). This international master level program recruits 30% of its students from Latin America. These students are supported by the program within their research work which very often takes place in co-operation with companies and/ or research institutions in the Latin American region. Through our insights and knowledge about the research capabilities given at these students we would like to help identifying gaps and improvement opportunities for the research education of students from Latin America. As a next step we would appreciate to partner with research institutions from the Latin American region in postgraduate and/ or doctoral programs.
