A young university with a modern profile. With the founding of the University of Applied Sciences (FHB) in April 1992, Brandenburg on the Havel became a university town for the first time in its history of over a 1,000 years. In just five years the site of former cuirassier barracks in Brandenburg's military district was transformed into today's FHB campus with renovated buildings alongside newly constructed buildings. The FHB offers attractive, cutting-edge degree courses in three disciplines: engineering, business administration and economics as well as information technology and media. More than 3,000 students are enrolled at the FHB, studying in modern teaching facilities and laboratories in a leafy campus setting.
