Greetings by our president Prof. Dr. Walter Schober

Dear visitors of our website,

I would like to welcome you to Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt online. With 700 employees, we support more than 6,000 students in 65 technical and economic bachelor's and master's degree programmes. 150 professors in five faculties, five research institutes, about 140 international partner universities and a modern administration - these are further key data of our university. But what is behind these figures? It is quality in practice-oriented teaching, innovative strength in applied research and a campus with an attractive environment in which we place our students at the centre.   
A core feature of the studies at our university is its application orientation. We train students to become specialists and managers who are in demand on the labour market. A dynamic and successful region with a distinctive economic structure creates good conditions for this. Internships and project work in cooperation with regional companies are central components of every degree programme. In addition, our university is distinguished by its family character. In this way, we ensure the success of a highly qualified education through individual support. And we offer our students a career path from Bachelor's to Master's to doctorate at one of our research institutes. Over 100 doctoral students follow this path.
We offer companies various forms of cooperation: We are not only happy to have partners for dual studies, but also offer a wide range of part-time programmes in academic continuing education. There are also opportunities for cooperation in research. Here we occupy a top position among universities of applied sciences nationwide. With around 60 research-active professors and their almost 200 academic staff, we cover a wide range of research fields. With the CARISSMA research building, we form the nationwide leading scientific centre for vehicle safety. And as the Bavarian AI mobility hub, we are building a centre for artificial intelligence with around 100 employees, supported by the High-Tech Agenda Bavaria. With our innovations, we are securing the science and business location in the centre of Bavaria.

And live up to our vision: Personalities and Innovations - for a future worth living.
I hope you enjoy our website and invite you to visit our social media channels. Of course, I would be particularly pleased to welcome you in person to the campus of the THI in Ingolstadt or, from autumn 2021, to the satellite campus in Neuburg/Donau.


With kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Walter Schober

President
