Research is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. It is indispensable for securing our prosperity and coexistence and is of great importance, which is also reflected in the ideal of self-administration and the freedom of research enshrined in constitutional law.
For this reason, research topics at Landshut University of Applied Sciences are also defined according to the bottom-up principle. Many researchers have joined forces in interdisciplinary and cross-faculty research areas, which are an important element of the university's strategic orientation.

About us

Research at Landshut University of Applied Sciences

Researchers are supported by the provision of modern infrastructure and numerous support services. The Research Unit informs, advises and supports researchers and those interested in research in a variety of ways.

Insights into the world of research can be gained during studies, and it is also possible to enter the world of research later in life.

Scientific career opportunities

In order to support students interested in pursuing a doctorate, Landshut University of Applied Sciences offers research-oriented project modules in many Master's degree programmes. The cross-faculty and cross-university Master's degree programme Applied Research in Engineering Science plays a particularly important role here.

After completing a degree programme, students can gain or deepen their experience in the world of research by working on a research project. This can also be used to work towards a doctorate.

Since 2023, universities of applied sciences in Bavaria have also had the right to award doctorates, meaning that in addition to cooperative doctorates with a university, doctorates can also be awarded directly at the university's graduate centre.

For people with a particular interest in research and teaching, the junior professorship is also an opportunity to embark on or pursue an academic career.
