The Regensburg University of Applied Sciences (Template:Lang-de, literally: East Bavarian technical university of Regensburg) is an university in Regensburg, Germany. It was founded in 1971 as a college for technology, business and social work. Today the university is one of the largest institutions of applied sciences in Bavaria. Its eight faculties offer 24 Bachelor's degree programs, 13 Master's degree studies as well as five postgraduate courses. Emphasis is laid on Arts, Business, Design, Social Affairs and Health.



The history of Regensburg University of Applied Sciences goes back to the middle of 19th century, when the private drawing teacher Johann Dörner founded a private school for construction and plan drawing in 1846. In 1868 this school was united with the "königlich bayerische Realschule" in Regensburg which can be translated as Royal Bavarian Highschool to offer education in construction professions beyond regular school education. A few decades later in 1953 it was transformed and renamed into the so called "Bauschule für Hoch- und Tiedbau" (Template:Lang-en).

Birth of Johannes-Kepler-Polytechnikum

Because of raising numbers of students in Regensburg, the goverment of Oberpfalz decided to expand the educational offers of the Bauschule in Regensburg. As a result of this the faculties of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering were founded in 1958. From now on the school was known as Johannes-Kepler-Polytechnikum, named after the famous German mathmatician Johannes Kepler.
