The UAS Erfurt
The UAS Erfurt was created in 1991 with the goal of the care and the development of science and the arts through research, teachings, study and further training.
It developed from the school of engineering for building industry as well as the school of engineering for horticulture and since then has followed the many years of university tradition in Germany.
At present about 4,500 people are studying here, whereby the portion of students amounts to approx. 50%.
Approx. 148 professors as well as scientific staff and employees are busy with the training of the students and further scientific tasks of the UAS. About 215 further employees and staff are employed with tasks, such as support in teaching and research, in the rector’s office and the central administration, in different institutes, in which university library entrusts as well as at the university computer centre and in the workshop. The total number of employees thus amounts to approximately 370 persons. Of which approx. 46% are female.
The students of the UAS are trained in 6 faculties at present in a large number of different courses of studies for the Bachelors and Masters degrees at different locations in Erfurt.
It is a particular challenge for universities to become family-friendly, in other words to make it easier for students to combine study and family, and for workers to combine career and family. A university requires and facilitates different solutions to, for instance, production businesses or the services sector. Wide-ranging differences in the structure of teaching and research, varying demands on time and personnel in the academic sphere, in administration and in studying make standardised rules difficult. And there is a limit to how far universities can be compared.
For this reason the UAS Erfurt has decided to undergo an audit as a family-friendly university, so that the compatibility of study and family, or career and family, can be improved by taking structured, targeted measures over and above those already in place.
