The Universität der Bundeswehr München was founded in 1973 in the beautiful city of Munich with the aim of providing officers and officer candidates of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) with a university education that would also prepare them for civilian careers. After all, most regular offi-cers leave the military after 13 years. Since its founding, the number of students has been rising steadily: today there are around 3,700 registered students, including 360 women, 50 civilians, and 150 international students and officers.

In contrast to other universities, the standard period of study at the Universität der Bundeswehr München is only 3 years for a bachelor's degree and one additional year for the master's degree. Our diplomas are nevertheless fully state-approved and are considered to be on equal standing with those awarded by other German universities.

The Universität der Bundeswehr München is made up of the University and a College of Applied Sci-ences and offers a total of 13 programs of study in 7 departments of the University and 3 depart-ments of the College. Our excellent scientific facilities allow high-level research that is competitive on an international scale.
