The university views itself as a multidisciplinary campus-based university combining various engineering sciences and social and health sciences disciplines within a clear communication framework, thus enabling students to tackle issues and problem solutions that broaden their individual scientific horizon.
The university has a strong regional focus, viewing itself as a link between regional and international expert groups. It is receptive to issues and problems specific to the region and seeks regional involvement in its capacity as an academic centre and driving force in teaching, research and continuing education.
The regional emphasis is also strongly reflected in the specialist subject orientation of the courses and teaching, research and continuing education. The main emphasis is on the following occupational focuses and areas of competence.
This area of expertise includes teaching and research for all practical fields of social work and intervention, training and education outside the classroom, as well as the economy and management of non-profit institutions.
This area of expertise includes teaching and research for prevention (primary, secondary, tertiary) and for health management. The fields of Nursing Sciences/Management and social services management are part of an integrated health care system research concept.
The academic disciplines of this area of expertise focus on spatial relations including nature and environment and their design. Their characteristic features are sustainable regional development and infrastructure and the economic, ecological, and social conditions underlying such development and infrastructure and these also extend to encompass the recording, processing and provision of spatially related data.
This area of expertise is characterised by a focus on resources and technology and a academic approach in agricultural and food production, the use of biogenous and natural resources as well as technology and quality management.
The main focus of work within the framework of this area of expertise is on consequences and planning and on the social and technical challenges for essential provision and technical infrastructure brought about by demographic change. It is characterised by interdisciplinary work and research, a process in which all university specialist subjects deal with the object of research from their respective viewpoint and using their specific methods. In this respect, this area of expertise focuses on conceptual and strategic aspects regarding the development chances of the region.
Consecutive Bachelor and Master programmes are an important element of the university profile. Besides the attractive Bachelor programmes, the range of highly competitive Master programmes constitute a core aspect of university development.
The development of scientific excellence in practice-orientated teaching and research is an important aspect of the Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences, which it supports through quality control, evaluation and accreditation of the programmes it offers.
