EAH Jena University of Applied Sciences was founded on 1st October 1991 as one of the first institutions of higher education of its kind in the newly founded federal states of Germany. In the interest of a scientifically profound and practically oriented education, the university cooperates with universities in Europe and beyond. There is also an intensive cooperation with industry: world-famous companies like Zeiss, Jenoptik, Siemens, and Bosch, and the industrial research institutions in Jena represent modern technology, up-to-date management and scientific innovation.
The city of Jena is in the middle of Europe in Thuringia, the “Green Heart” of Germany. The traditional old university town is a well-known center of high technology and, moreover, it is situated in a unique, charming landscape. About 100,000 people live in Jena and 23,000 are university students.
