Our society is based on electronic technologies. Medical robots help to diagnose and cure diseases. Sensor systems automatise production.

Gaining new knowledge is an important part of studying, but only learning theory is not enough to prepare for a career. To convert knowledge into professional skills, it is important for students to be able to apply newly gained theory to real-life practice. That is why Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences combines lectures with project weeks, internships, and graduation assignments.


Student feedback can help to choose a university abroad. While rankings reveal an overall university reputation and its academic strength, reviews of students who studied there provide real first-hand experience.
