WING - the magazine

"WING" is also the name of the magazine published by the Faculty of Business Administration and Engineering. We have been producing the magazine with a circulation of 1600 copies every semester since 1996 and sell it to students, companies and partners of the university, or distribute it to interested parties at trade fairs. Six to nine students from the 5th semester produce the magazine as part of a project. In this way, the students get to know the entire production process of a print medium.

WING" gives readers a comprehensive insight into business administration and engineering studies at Furtwangen University. The magazine reports on current developments at the university, in the faculty and in the degree programmes; authors provide information about the careers of WING students, about projects and theses from science and practice, the close cooperation with companies and about Furtwangen.
