Be future ready with practical German education

For over 20 years, IU has been at the forefront of German education, offering specialised degree programmes in business, engineering, and technology.

Germany is known for its universities of applied sciences (or Fachhoschulen), such as IU, where theory and practice go hand-in-hand. This means you will:

  • Learn from IU lecturers with 3+ years of professional experience.
  • Apply knowledge gained to real-world case studies.
  • Acquire valuable industry insights and in-demand work skills.
  • Be fully prepared for the challenges of the working world.
