Engineering, economics, design, and 'green' disciplines constitute the four pillars that more than 40 forward-looking diploma, bachelor's, and master's degree programmes in civil engineering/architecture, electrical engineering, information technology/mathematics, product design, mechanical and process engineering, and business administration are based upon. These degree programmes include a number of subjects that are unique to post-secondary education in Saxony such as agriculture, horticulture, landscape planning and development, environmental monitoring and analysis, geoinformatics and surveying, as well as geoinformatics and cartography.
International connections of the various courses and placements abroad are essential characteristics of Dresden University of Applied Sciences’ modern approach to teaching, which also train students' intercultural communication skills to foster an important east-west interface.
International teaching and research cooperations and student and university teacher exchanges sponsored by the university help to maintain close contacts with numerous universities and colleges in Europe, Africa, America, Asia, and Australia.
