Albstadt-Sigmaringen University

The Albstadt-Sigmaringen University, or Hochschule Albstadt-Sigmaringen, is a German university in the province of Baden-Württemberg, which is spread between the towns of Albstadt and Sigmaringen.

The school dates back to the 1970s and is mainly directed at German students, with no English-language courses. It generally specializes in computer sciences, life sciences, business administration, and engineering, giving it a very practical slant. This tends to ensure that graduates have excellent connections to regional companies when they leave.
