Short description of the facilities
University of Applied Sciences was founded in 1992. It is the second-largest university in the capital of the state of Saxony. Engineering, economics, design, and ‘green’ disciplines constitute the four pillars that more than 40 forward-looking diploma, bachelor’s, and master’s degree programs in civil engineering/architecture, electrical engineering, informatics, product design, machine engineering, and business administration are based on. With 8 faculties, approximately 170 professors, and more than 5,000 students, the university is large enough to integrate the different disciplines successfully and generate a high synergistic effect.
The University of Applied Sciences is divided in various buildings. First picture gives a campus overview. The main administrative building (second picture) consists mainly of offices (workers/employee/professors) and lecture halls for the students. The seminar building is mainly separated in class rooms, laboratories and lecture halls. The library is separated in a single building and gives on every floor small working places for students next to the archives.
There are 5000 students that use the campus area fulltime during their study. Next to the students 180 professors and many employees are working inside the buildings.
