Information for Prospective Students

What stands out about studying at the HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences? Small groups, our practical-orientation, award-winning instructors, numerous innovative projects, and excellent partner universities around the world. And best of all: our campus is located directly on Lake Constance (with its very own beach bar) and only a skip and a jump from the Swiss Alps.

Electives Outside your Major

HTWG Konstanz students are encouraged to think outside the box of their majors and begin to develop other essential skills, such as soft skills, already early on in their studies.

The HTWG Konstanz thus offers a broad range of electives and extra-curricular activities: from our legendary university theater, which has performed in such unusual locations as an indoor swimming pool or a discotheque, to the Open Innovation Lab, in which students can tinker on new ideas using 3D printers, milling machines or virtual reality glasses. Or students can join our successful racing team that builds its own electric racing motorcycles or race cars and participates in international competitions.

In the framework of our Extracurricular Studies Program ("Studium Generale”), students can take such courses for credit.
