Cooperations and Career

Studying at FHWS is characterised by particular orientation towards application and practice. Our students, therefore, not only do project work and internships during their studies. In consultation of the Bavarian Ministry of Science and members of the world of business, the curricula are devised in order to optimally prepare students for the requirements of companies and their future professional life. All our lecturers have profound professional experience and many of them worked in companies before joining FHWS.

Cooperation opportunities for interested companies

In the last decades, numerous cooperations with companies have been concluded. In addition to the cooperation within dual cooperative studies, project and final theses are created, which deal with specific issues from industry and business.

In order to support promising young professionals while they are still studying, the national scholarship Deutschlandstipendium is an excellent opportunity for companies.
After 23 years of its own job fair Praxisforum, FHWS now participates in the job fair JOBMESSE study&stay offered by Universität Würzburg GmbH. With this, FHWS continues to foster the communication and information exchange between companies and students.
In addition, companies can act as sponsors or support certain events of FHWS and/or the FHWS CareerService for image purposes. There is also the possibility to place an ad in our study guide.

FHWS research database

The FHWS research database Forscherdatenbank provides an overview of teaching and research activities of FHWS personnel. By this database new possibilities for research cooperations, networks and the transfer of knowledge are created. The tool is supposed to support everyone inside and outside of FHWS to find the right contact person. Internal use may comprise finding contacts for research announcements, research and development projects or support for internal processes; interested third-parties can use it to find specialists for commissions or partners for establishing research consortia. Note that the database is currently only available in German.
