About

History

Founded in 1972, the University of Wuppertal (UW) is still young. Its twin goals are academic excellence in its individual disciplines and the consistent development of the interface between these disciplines and the world of practical experience – in a word, the transfer of knowledge and technological know-how.

Research

As well as its many different teaching programs the University of Wuppertal offers a wide spectrum of research activities, covering both fundamental and applied research in almost all departments.

UW's key competency lies in the interdisciplinary dovetailing of its research activities. The four already established Interdisciplinary Centers indicate the strategic orientation of UW research.

Research is not an end in itself; it is a service to society. In view of this, the transfer of knowledge and technological skills between the university and the worlds of business, industry and culture is integral to UW activities. This applies from individual thesis topics through to contractually based research cooperations.
