Founding Year
Study Programs

Founded in 1906 and based in the lakeside city of Konstanz, HTWG has remained a relatively small technical university with an oversized reputation. Famous for its business-related computer science courses, and for its architecture and design programs, the Hochschule has almost 5,000 students. It offers both Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral study opportunities for domestic and international students.

More about HTWG

HTWG, or to give its full name, the Hochschule Konstanz für Technik, Wirtschaft und Gestaltung, is a leading university of applied sciences. Regularly figuring in lists of Germany's top 15 technical universities, the school has a very strong reputation for combining computer science and business management, but courses range widely and include healthcare computer science and architecture options. Students are encouraged to work with the university's corporate partners.

Placements are routine, with companies often using the school's Centre for Innovation 4.0 to train current and potential employees. Students are often accepted from abroad if they obtain suitable German language qualifications, but Studienkolleg courses are available in most cases to provide the necessary preparation. With the Alps and Lake Konstanz on its doorstep, the university is popular with lovers of the outdoors and isn't far from the urban attractions of Munich.


Tuition fees: Baden-Wuerttemberg

Internationals studying for more than one year in the German state of Baden-Wuerttemberg will have to pay a €1,500 tuition fee per semester.
