Vice Rectorate Teaching and Studies

We create opportunities for exchange between all members of the university.

We think and act in a networked way in order to map the diversity of the topics of the university holistically.

We all shape the apprenticeship together at our HTW Dresden.

Our topics

We want to make teaching and study programs future-oriented and support you in their design. This ranges from pre-courses for students to the joint development of teaching to career counseling for future professional worlds. In doing so, we receive impulses from business, society, associations and the Wissenschaftsrat, the Stifterverband and others, and creatively introduce them to our university with lecturers, faculty and students. The core of our strategic approach and operative work is always a common implementation of all university members.
