Welcome to Mittweida

In the tradition of 150 years of engineering education, Mittweida University of Applied Sciences has become future-oriented, cosmopolitan. Our teaching and research offers are taken up within the framework of regional and supra-regional cooperation, increasingly by small and medium-sized enterprises in Saxony. The spectrum of industry-related research and development is characterised by third-party funded research, cooperative doctoral projects, independently organised development work as well as projects of the institutes and research associations.
