Universities of Applied SciencesEdit

Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) were established in the early 1970s to help German industries maintain their international competitiveness. With their new approach they put higher education on a solid academic footing based on practice-oriented education and -increasingly- applied research.[3]

Universities of applied sciences differ from other universities by preparing students through application-oriented and interdisciplinary instruction. Although research is becoming increasingly important to UAS, teaching and practical experiences in non-academic settings are very important parts of the education. Their objective is to enable graduates to apply systematic theoretical and rigorously methods-based knowledge to resolve practical problems flexibly. This enables UAS graduates to integrate quickly into the business environment after graduation and thus provides them with a strong competitive edge for their future careers.[4]

UAS7 New York, Inc.Edit

The UAS7 Liaison Office New York represents the seven universities in North America. UAS7 New York Inc. was founded in 2005 and became a tax-exempt nonprofit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the United States tax code in 2017. The New York office is supported through contributions by the UAS7 member universities and independent fundraising activities.[5]
