Welcome to the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Amberg-Weiden (OTH)
The Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Amberg-Weiden (OTH – Technical University of Applied Sciences) is located in the Upper Palatinate, an administrative district of the federal state of Bavaria. It is home to four departments on two campuses in Amberg and Weiden, respectively, about 40 kilometers apart.
With approximately 3,500 students and an academic staff of 83, the University offers excellent conditions and career prospects. In addition to the regular academic programmes, students can choose from a variety of extra-curricular courses and activities to sharpen their skills and broaden their minds. Our graduates are in great demand on the regional and national labour markets, and our University constantly secures top places in university rankings.
Our main objective has been and still is to provide our students with a practical, theory-based education in close cooperation with our partners from business and industry. This practical orientation draws much of its strength from our professors’ extensive hands-on experience - all of them have worked outside academia for at least five years. Students benefit from small group teaching, practical seminars and laboratories and a compulsory work placement.
