University - The Particular

Jade University of Applied Sciences is a young university, but it draws on a long educational tradition. What does this mean? It was founded in 2009, the result of a merger of two universities of applied sciences. That means you will find the very latest learning and teaching concepts here, in addition to the solid experience and expertise of educational establishments dating back to 1832. What's more, although around 8,000 students are currently enrolled, they quickly adjust to the family-like atmosphere and enjoy lots of support throughout their time at university.

Study Programme - Main Focus

With our 50 degree programmes ranging from Architecture, Construction, Geoinformation and Engineering Sciences, to Medical Technology, Business Administration, Nautical Science and Logistics, to Management/Information/Technology, we can offer innovative variety to suit all strengths and interests. Degree programmes such as "Audio Technology and Audiology" and "Assistive Technologies" are unique to Jade University of Applied Sciences.

Background - The Insight

After its founding in 2009, the new university needed a new, catchy name. The perfect name was not difficult to find, as the Jade river winds through the three campus locations of Wilhelmshaven, Oldenburg and Elsfleth. The Jade is a river in Lower Saxony about 22 km long, with its source near Oldenburg. It meanders through the District of Oldenburg in the Weser Marsh, and finally reaches the sea in Jade Bay, east of Varel.

One well-known graduate of Jade University of Applied Sciences is Olaf Lies, the current Minister for Economics of Lower Saxony.

What's special here?

Once a year in November, some 30 professors from Jade University of Applied Sciences and Oldenburg University take over the turntables in popular Oldenburg clubs. The "Night of the Profs" is great fun, and students get to know their "profs" from a completely different angle. The University's largest charity event draws more than 2,000 party guests each year.
