HTW Berlin


  • The historical roots of today’s university of applied sciences can be traced back to the German Empire. In 1874, the "Fachschule für Dekomponieren, Komponieren und Musterzeichnen" (school of engineering and technical drawing) was established.
  • HTW Berlin is a comparatively young institution. In 2014 it celebrated its twentieth anniversary as an independent university of applied sciences.


HTW Berlin offers over 70 study programmes in the areas of technology, computing, business, culture and design. Subjects range from classical disciplines such as mechanical engineering, automotive engineering and business administration to new and innovative study programmes such as facility management, economic policy and game design.


HTW Berlin cultivates a broad understanding of transfer and cooperates with numerous institutions and key players in the areas of science, business, management and culture. The Cooperation Centre for Applied Sciences acts as the central point of contact for cooperation enquiries, putting interested parties in touch with appropriate experts at HTW Berlin and helping to set up cooperative research activities.
