In 1992, the different schools were unified and comprise today’s Leipzig University of Applied Sciences. Currently more than 6,200 students are enrolled at the HTWK Leipzig. As the only technological/applied university in Leipzig, the HTWK is also the centre of innovative engineering science in the region.
The rapid increase in the importance of engineering science is directly connected to the increasing importance of life science and medicine in Leipzig. Life sciences and medicine is becoming one of the main engines of science and economy in this region.
