Research at OTH

OTH Regensburg is one of the most research-intensive universities of applied sciences in Bavaria and has held the title of ‘Technical University of Applied Sciences’ since 2013. OTH Regensburg is guided first and foremost by its five core themes: Energy and Mobility, Information and Communication, Life Sciences and Ethics, Production and Systems and Buildings and Infrastructure. Sensor Technology and Digitization crosslink these core themes as interdisciplinary subjects.

At the same time the university’s research work closely mirrors the economic structures of the Regensburg region. As a partner in joint research projects with business and industry, OTH Regensburg is able to generate fresh innovative impetus for the region – with new processes and technologies, by boosting skill levels and creating potential for entrepreneurship and business startups.
