As a university, we are confronted with changing conditions. We see this as an opportunity, an incentive and a challenge in equal measure.
As a result, the demands placed on university teaching by politics and society are increasing today. The focus remains on the quality of teaching as well as on a systems for quality assurance and development that are established and developed at our university.
Our campus offers short distances between students and lecturers and thrives on its personal atmosphere. We aim at a strong feeling of belonging and are proud of our motivated staff. The students are always at the core of our activities. Our campus is lively and there is always time for public discussion and academic discourse.
The university takes on responsibility for sustainable development within our society. We want our students to be able to meet future challenges in accordance with the principles of sustainability. Our research is oriented towards helping to solve global problems in technology, economy and society. As an institution, we would like to support sustainable development particularly in our own region.
We actively support the technological, economic and social development of the northwestern region. Our work offers incentives for education in East Frisia and helps build up and maintain scientific networks. At the same time we represent our region nationally and internationally in the realms of education and research. Our university and its surroundings work closely together for the best possible results.
In lecturing, our main goal is to take care of our students intensively and individually. We want to give them the qualifications to graduate successfully and enable them to take on responsible positions in businesses and organizations. We support them in developing their personality during the time they are with us.
