Furtwangen Unversity regularly runs information days for school pupils, trainees and employees, giving an idea of the various programmes we offer and the levels required. We also participate regularly at fairs.
You are also welcome to come to the University to discuss your own individual situation. Academic counsellors from the individual study programmes can help you find the right degree programme. Contact details can be found on the webpages of the individual study programmes.
Every year in November school leavers, teachers and parents have the opportunity to get an all-round insight into studying on Furtwangen University's three campuses during the Furtwangen University Open Day. It's possible to sit in on lectures, take tours of the labs and take part in practicals and experiments. Full information about the range of degree programmes we offer, and about applications and admissions is also provided.

It's never too early to get children interested in something, which is why Furtwangen University organizes a Kids Uni on the Schwenningen Campus every year at the end of July, allowing kids aged 8 - 12 to come to university for the morning.

And in Furtwangen you can go to Kids Uni for a whole week: Kids Uni Furtwangen.
There are several ways to try out university while you are still at school to see if it's the right thing for you. If you're interested in IT, the Faculty of Computer Science offers a Schools Programme in the Easter holidays. You can also take part in lectures throughout the semester in the ELAN lecture series of the Electrical Engineering programme and the Pupils Programme offered by the Faculty of Computer Science.
If you want to find out whether engineering is the right course for you, it's worthwhile taking a look at the Technical Orientation Prep Course on the Tuttlingen Campus. During the summer semester (March to July) you'll be given an introduction to the subjects of medical technology, materials technology, production engineering and mechatronics, and at the end you will be ready to choose a regular study programme.
