Bauhaus University Weimar

We are an international university at home in the unique, cultural city of Weimar. We are a vibrant institution, not a museum. We invoke this tremendous paradigm to answer central questions regarding art and culture, technology, science and society using modern methods. 


The Bauhaus, the most influential design school in the 20th  century, was founded in 1919 in our main building on campus.  Distinguished experts from various disciplines and countries have worked here together with their students to revolutionize education. They have left a permanent mark on the design of the living world through modern art, technology and science.


With faculties and areas of study such as Architecture and Urbanism, Art and Design, Civil Engineering and Media, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has a distinctive identity within the German university landscape.


The research activities at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar are diverse, international and interdisciplinary. The unique university profile is strongly rooted in the Bauhaus tradition which interconnects technical, scientific and creative-artistic endeavours. In addition to successively promoting the research areas “Digital Engineering” and “Cultural Scientific Media Research”, the university supports other research fields, such as “City, Architecture and Environment”, “Material and Construction” and “Art, Design and Media Art”, all of which play an important identity-building role.


The Career Service is part of the General Academic Advising department at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Throughout one’s studies and after graduation, it provides support in all matters of professional orientation and entry in the workforce.
