Practice-oriented, international and full of opportunities

The Hochschule Bremen (HSB) is the second largest higher education institution in the state of Bremen and a leading address for applied sciences in the northwest of Germany. In the heart of Bremen's Neustadt district, around 8,500 students study and research in more than 60 Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes, encompassing engineering, the natural sciences, economics as well as social and engineering sciences. Our degree programmes are characterised by orientation to practice, tuition in small groups, and a strong international orientation.

In teaching and research, we address the pressing topics of our time – from sustainable energy systems to issues surrounding the quality of life. We adopt an application-oriented and interdisciplinary approach in everything we do. In close cooperation with private enterprises, scientific institutions and socially relevant organisations in the region and around the world, we develop solutions for virtually all areas of practice.

Around 360 partnerships worldwide and a high proportion of international students underscore our cosmopolitan profile. This puts us in a top position among German universities of applied sciences.

Excellent career prospects

In application-oriented education and research, we see ourselves as a driving force for both regional and personal development. Committed and motivated employees are the indispensible factor for our success and contribute to the further development of the university. Along with our deep commitment to providing our students with the best possible preparation for their future professional activities, our focus therefore also lies on the well-being of our employees. We offer a variety of counselling and continuing education opportunities to provide them with ongoing support. In addition to further training, this also includes the promotion of stays abroad as well as cultural and sports activities.

We see the diversity of our university members as a strength. That is why we are committed to diversity and equal opportunities and in this context design targeted measures to promote women and people with disabilities. The compatibility of career and family are another high priority at HSB and form the cornerstones of our staff policy. Flexible working hours, in-house childcare and internal service points are central elements contributing to the good work-life balance and relaxed working atmosphere at HSB. Independent audits regularly check for the effectiveness of the measures we implement in this direction.

Bremen, captivating Hanseatic city on the Weser

Bremen knows how to excel – not only in top-level research, but also with the quality of life here. In the Hanseatic city, metropolitan flair meets northern German gemütlichkeit, top-class sport meets a wide range of cultural activities, a sense of tradition meets cosmopolitanism. HSB is right in the middle of all this, spread over three campuses in the centrally located Neustadt district of Bremen. This lively and diverse part of town is extremely popular with HSB students and employees alike. At the same time, Bremen's impressive city centre with the Town Hall, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the neighbouring historical quarter, the Altstadt, as well as the river embankment with it’s typical German Biergarten are only a few minutes' walk away. Thanks to excellent transport connections, HSB is easy to reach from within Bremen and from the surrounding area.
