Difference between Technical Universities (TU) and Fachhochschule (FH)

Difference between Technical Universities (TU) and Fachhochschule (FH)

Technische Universität (TU) Vs. Fachhochschule (FH)

Almost all the German universities can be broadly classified as either a 'university' or a 'University of Applied Sciences' (as weird as it may sound). Techincal Universities (TU) are the subcategory of universities. They are more research oriented and provide theoretical knowledge based on the subjects which related to a specific field. On the other hand, Universities of Applied Sciences (FH) are totally focused on practical knowledge or industry oriented studies. TUs are ideal for the students who have plans to pursue a Doctorate Degree after their master studies. Similarly, FHs are good for the students who wish to work in an industry immediately following their masters studies. However, this is not a strict categorization.

Technische Universität (TU)

TU universities focus more on research-based learning. Typically 90% of the course work will be based on research projects and they do have Industry funds to invest in their R&D. If you are looking forward to achieve PhD after masters or would like to have a professional career in teaching, these universities are best.

You can still apply for a job after finishing your masters in a TU.

After completing your PhD you can continue as a lecturer for Master’s/bachelor’s in the same college.

A degree course at a University is far heavier on theory and for those seeking to pursue a scientific career, this would be a decent alternative. A well-developed research and development portfolio – way above the FH average -ensures continuous new material and innovative topics in degree courses. University degree courses seem to be variable, this implies the student will be able to set his/her study speed oneself, which suggests that it usually takes longer time to graduate.

Fachhochschule (FH)

FH universities are basically focused on practical approach to learning. The courses are 70–80% practice based. These universities have a very strong relations with industries. If you are going to do job right after you graduate, FH suits your goals.

FHs do not offer PhD. You cannot apply for Ph.D after your Master’s in the same college. However, you can do a PhD in a ‘university’ after finishing your masters in a FH.Clearly, the choice goes with you, whether you wish to work after your Master’s or pursue a Ph.D.

In FH, most degree programs are within the field of engineering, natural sciences and business administration. Degrees within the field of humanities, social sciences are rarely offered at the ‘Fachhochschulen’. Internships in companies for a shorter period give an upper hand to know the real-time functionalities and requirements. Also, A high percentage of lecturers directly from the private sector (guest lecturers from industry).
