A particularly important aspect of the bachelor's and master's programmes at Furtwangen University is the strong practical orientation. Research and development projects are an important component of the degree programmes and our close cooperation with industry. During the course of the degree programme students put their theory into practice in a project for and with an industry partner.
The Faculty of Medical and Life Sciences has a great deal of contact with firms and clinics in the region, particularly in the fields of mechanical engineering, precision engineering and medical technology. In addition it has good connections with companies in the areas of biotechnology and process engineering, also from further afield, including Freiburg, Stuttgart, Tübingen, Basel, Rhein-Neckar-Dreieck, Munich, Hamburg and Lübeck.
The examples of projects given here result from current requirements from industry and society and change regularly.
