We are dedicated to making a positive impact on the world and remaining at the forefront of research. Our main focus is on mobility, with projects such as developing plug-in systems for electric public transport, using data glasses in production, and understanding language to increase international intercultural competence, to name but a few.
The WHZ has three main locations: Zwickau, Reichenbach and Schneeberg. We continue to invest in state-of-the-art facilities, including ensuring our Zwickau campus library remains one of the finest in Germany.
We seek to provide a first class educational experience for students in all aspects of their studies, from Bachelor and Masters degrees, to the traditional German Diplom. Having good student-teacher ratios helps ensure our students reach their full potential.
The WHZ attracts around 4,700 students from across the world. We help students develop a range of skills essential for future employment and provide many opportunities to make the most of their time with us.
Working with Others
The WHZ has good global partnerships both to other universities such as in China and America, and to national and multinational companies, like Volkswagen and Audi, giving students the chance to gain some great experience, equipping them for life after university.
I hope your experience with us is rewarding, enjoyable and successful. We will always strive to ensure the WHZ provides a first-rate experience for everyone who works and studies with us.
