International students have different options to study at the Luebeck University of Applied Sciences: either within a full time bachelor or master degree program or as part of an exchange program.

While most of the degree programs are primarily taught in German, we also offer international programs taught exclusively in English.

International Bachelor Programs

  • Joint Program with Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE)
    MSOE-Logo

    The international program of FH Luebeck and the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), Wisconsin, USA, can be chosen by German students as well as American students.

    German students who want to join this program must be enrolled in either

    at FH Luebeck. Being such a Bachelor student, one can choose the international branch and finish the studies in the USA.

    American students must be enrolled either in the Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering program or they must be students in the Rader School of Business at MSOE to take part in the international program.

    MSOE students will study at FH Luebeck from September through June of their junior year. One year later, German students follow to finish their studies in the USA. Successful completion of this joint exchange program awards a student two degrees: a Bachelor of Science from both Universities.

    All courses are taught in English, but instruction in conversational German is given at FH Luebeck. All course work transfers to the MSOE program and participation does not delay a student's progress towards graduation.

  • Joint Program with East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST)
    ECUST-Logo

    There has been active contact with Chinese Universities since the mid nineties, especially in the areas of Shanghai and Hangzhou on the east coast of China. Within the framework of this network, students and scientists at FH Luebeck have the opportunity of studying and researching at the partner universities.

    Building on the experiences of many years, a special pilot project began in 2004: FH Luebeck and the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) created a joint study model which is partly delivered in Shanghai and partly in Luebeck. The associated bachelor programs are called Environmental Engineering and Information Technology. After eight semesters, the graduates of these English programs are awarded a German-Chinese double-degree.

    Each year since 2007, about 70 to 80 Chinese students come to Luebeck to study their semesters 6 to 8. For the first phase, the joint study model is only available to Chinese students; following the start-up phase,  it is also planned to offer German students integrated semesters in Shanghai as free movers going out.

    This project has been very well received amongst German Universities and has also received an award for being one (of only seven) of the best practice models for German-Chinese cooperation.

International Master Programs

  • Biomedical Engineering, M.Sc.

    Luebeck's Biomedical Engineering Master Program is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in research and development, academia, or industry. The objective of the program is to educate students in the interdisciplinary fields of engineering and medicine.

    The program is offered by both the University of Luebeck and the Luebeck University of Applied Sciences. The language of instruction and examination is English; the program starts each September and the program's duration is 4 semesters (120 credit points).

    More detailed information on the program's website: www.bme-master.com

  • Environmental Engineering, M.Eng.

    The objective of the Environmental Engineering Master program is to qualify students in the interdisciplinary field of environmental engineering, focused on state-of the art techniques, cutting edge technologies and methods presented by internationally acknowledged experts.

    The setup of the study course emphasizes the most efficient problem-solving strategies of today's networks. Joint learning conceptions are integrated, resulting in the ability to look from a different point of view and to adapt and optimize solutions efficiently in a technical, economical and socio-ecological context.

    FH Luebeck has a long tradition of interdisciplinary education, research and development. One major focus is put onto environmental techniques, chemistry, engineering and management in the field of air, water and soil.

    The master program is designed as a full-time study course of 3 semesters with a work load of approx. 40 hours per week. The program prepares engineers for working in the fields of R&D, industrial applications and processes and education in an international context. The modular structure of the course enables an entry at any semester without difficulties or losses.

  • Mechanical Engineering, M.Sc.

    The special approach of our Mechanical Engineering Master program is a strategic partnership between students, their universities and the industries. There is a strong intention of this study program to involve companies into the process of education and research and furthermore to encourage students to take over responsibility for their own studying.

    The program aims to attract students from all over the world although it is tentatively based on the Bologna Agreement for study programs within the European Union (EU).

    Within this study program, we are going to offer the opportunity of studying e. g. one semester at one of our partner universities in the Baltic Sea region. This special branch of the program is named "International Design Engineer (IDE)". Hereby we are able to offer an extended range of classes, subjects and know-how to the students and the industrial partners; significantly more than one single university would be able to provide.

    Our Master of Science program is strongly orientated to efficiency and built on a scientific and application-based approach: We stick to our competence and business as a University of Applied Sciences!

    The language of instruction and examination is English. The program generally starts in the summer term (March) and optionally in the winter term (September).

    More information about prerequisites and application procedure can be found in the program application information.
