Conference Venue – Universität der Bundeswehr München UniBw

Campus 33

Universität der Bundeswehr München is located in Neubiberg just at the city boarder of Munich. It was founded in 1973 with the aim of providing officers and officer candidates with a university education that would also prepare them for civilian careers after their service.  Since its founding, the number of students has been rising steadily: today there are around 3,700 registered students, including 360 women, 50 civilians, and 150 international students and officers.

Divided into the University and a College of Applied Sciences (Fachhochschule) Universität der Bundeswehr München offers a total of 13 programs of study in 7 departments of the University and 3 departments of the College.

The university also offers scientists a wide field of subjects for fundamental and applied research. Here the main research efforts are concentrated in the engineering departments.

The researchers there have first-class, state-of-the-art laboratory equipment at their disposal, and their intensive research contributes considerably to the third-party funds flowing into the Universität der Bundeswehr München. As numerous national and international cooperation projects illustrate, the various departments of the university are equally sought-after by industry representatives and other research institutions as project partners.

The Universität der Bundeswehr München is one of Germany’s few campus universities. It covers an area of 140 hectares and contains all facilities which students and lecturers require for successful learning, teaching and research. Most of the students live on campus in dormitory rooms, and none of the lecture halls are more than a 10-minute walk away.
