1.3 Brief History:

The Bremen University of Applied Sciences: rich in tradition, innovative, international


The largest university of applied sciences in the smallest German federal state of Bremen is rich in tradition while also being innovative. With the inception of the University dating back to the year 1799, today, the Bremen University of Applied Sciences is committed to innovation and internationalisation. This extraordinary combination has decidedly characterised the profile of the University over the last decade. Today, the University embodies excellence in applied and practically-oriented teaching and research.


While the official founding date of the Bremen University of Applied Sciences is 1982, its roots go back to 1799, the year in which its predecessor institution was founded (Bremen School of Navigation). - In 1894, the "Technical Institute of the Free and Hanseatic City of Bremen” opened its doors, housing the "School of Construction” department, out of which would be formed the current faculties of architecture and engineering. - One year later, in 1895, the Sea Mechanics’ School, the Mechanical Engineering School and the Ship Building School opened. - In 1919, the "Social Women’s School” was founded (later known as the "University for Social Pedagogy and Social Economy”), which formed the predecessor of the Social Work faculty. - The business faculty began in 1963 as the "Higher School of Business”. - These institutions were developed into four practically-oriented universities of applied sciences in 1970. - The four previously independent universities for technology, business, social sciences and nautical science were unified in 1982 to form the Bremen University of Applied Sciences.


Students are currently distributed among four sites: Neustadtswall 30 with 3,818 students and Werderstraße 73 with approx. 3,107 students; both just several minutes on foot from the Bremen city centre.
