Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences

Modern // Personal // Cosmopolitan

2,500 students, 60 professors and increasingly more research topics in the fields of computer science and media, technology and business: Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences (THB) is a young, modern university located on the outskirts of Berlin, which provides an excellent learning environment. We are a strong partner in teaching and research, securing skilled workers and guaranteeing technology transfer in the region. Since 2016, the THB has been a member of the University Alliance for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, a consortium currently made up of ten universities of applied sciences. These institutions are united through the principle of training young people in a labour-market-related and application-oriented manner and to strengthen knowledge transfer within the regional economy. With the topic "Interdisciplinary Security”, THB has been represented on the research map of the German Rectors' Conference since 2015.

Guiding principle

THB is a university with an excellent reputation both regionally and nationally. We meet the challenge of competing for scientists, students, employees and resources. We stand for high quality teaching and research. Our profile is shaped by computer science and media as well as technology and business. Our departments create interdisciplinary and application-oriented teaching, further education and research in the overall interest of the university.

In our three departments, we offer the best opportunities for you to engage with business, computer science or technology intensively and practically. We also integrate students who transfer from a job to university. We design degree courses flexibly for all students, adapted to the circumstances of each individual. The departments' international contacts create good conditions for semesters abroad. Our range of courses guarantees that graduates have very good career opportunities. The university is optimally networked with companies in the region, not least due to its application-oriented research as well as spin-offs and company successions.

Studying, researching and living in the countryside surrounded by a historical ambience

The education and training we offer is geared to the individual needs and professional development opportunities of students and participants. In addition to attendance degree courses, distance and nationwide online degree courses, individualised further education courses are playing an increasingly important role.
Our distinguishing feature is our green campus at the site of the historical origin of the state of Brandenburg. Brandenburg an der Havel stands out as an attractive university city, and every year it welcomes a growing number of students from the Greater Berlin-Brandenburg region, from the eastern and western federal states and from abroad.
Our organisation is cosmopolitan, has regional roots and is at the same time internationally networked, basing its actions on values such as social responsibility and equal opportunity. THB is a fair and attractive employer. Trust is the basis for our actions. With us, family and studies are as compatible as family and work. At THB, the management and administration are geared to the needs of learners and teachers in order to best support them in their performance and focus on success.


Lay on the lawn, watch the water feature, work in the university library or enjoy a hot café crème from the cafeteria. In just two minutes you can be back in the lecture theatre. If you need a short break between lectures and activities, you can relax on the campus of the University of Applied Sciences. There are rocking deck chairs beside the water feature, which not only invite you to take a small break, but also to a tutorial in the sunshine. The green areas are idyllically bordered by shady trees and invite you to play ball and kubb games or to simply lie in the sun. There are also football fields and beach volleyball courts.

University library 

The THB's library has a wide repertoire of specialised literature. Those who don’t want to browse through the bookshelves of heavy and light literature can use the day room, which is flooded with daylight, in order to study, read and research. You can also work in absolute silence in the reading room. Anyone who is distraught about the research for a seminar paper or an assignment can also take advantage of the "Rent a librarian” offer, which means that the library staff take a first look at possible sources for you.

Cafeteria and canteen

The cafeteria, the canteen of the Potsdam student union, is centrally located on the campus and offers a fresh and delicious selection of snacks and drinks. In addition to fruity salads, sandwiches, Belgian waffles and delicious smoothies, the cafeteria team offers a wide range of coffees in a comfortable and modern environment, regularly ensuring that many students survive in the lectures.

Student accommodation

Even those who do not live in the student accommodation can benefit from what is offered to those living there. Whether you are looking to socialise, spend time together or have a small party: the student accommodation is generally available. In addition to a small party room with a barbecue area, the accommodation also has a gym and leisure facilities, such as table tennis.
