More about Biberach University of Applied Sciences

When it was created in 1964, the Biberach University of Applied Sciences was simply an architecture institute, but it's now become a lot more than that. While construction and architecture remain central programs, students can also study path-breaking subjects like pharmaceutical bioengineering and protein chemistry, or they can help to pioneer advances in renewable energy storage. It's a forward-looking, practical school, where students are encouraged to forge links with local companies, especially those engaged in construction and medical research.

Located in Biberach an der Riss, the university is close to cities like Memmingen, Ulm, and Stuttgart. It's also not far north of Lake Konstanz and the Alps, and the surrounding area is a popular region for lovers of the outdoors. International students are welcome, with many courses incorporating English-language instruction. But some German proficiency is demanded for all entrants, and the university provides free instruction as part of every program.
