Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences

The HHN – Study future topics, shape the future

HHN’s 8,200 students make it one of Baden-Württemberg’s largest universities for applied sciences. Its focus is on technology, economics and IT. Four campuses in Heilbronn, Heilbronn-Sontheim, Künzelsau and Schwäbisch Hall offer over 50 Bachelor’s and Master’s programs geared towards the future. But no one is just a number here: teaching and learning occurs in small groups. Whether you want to enroll for full-time studies, studies with in-depth practical elements (a model that combines theory and practice), cooperative studies (vocational training plus studies), or study while already working in a job – we have the right program for everyone.

HHN is a university for applied sciences, which means that research features prominently. Whether it’s artificial intelligence or virtual reality, HHN engages in intense and cross-disciplinary research into socially relevant topics such as autonomous cars or man-machine interaction for Industry 4.0.
