Jade University of Applied Sciences

The Jade University of Applied Sciences is located in Lower Saxony’s northwest. In total, 7,500 study at the three campuses located in Wilhelmshaven (4,800 students), Oldenburg (2,100 students) and Elsfleth (600 students) . As a newly founded university with its focus in the areas of maritime, engineering and business, the Jade University of Applied Sciences is known for its wide range of subjects and innovative teaching methods. The Jade University of Applied Sciences offers 37 Bachelor's and ten Master's programmes, led by a team of 180 lecturing staff. The university emphasizes a hands-on training and long-term cooperation with the regional industry – thus, many courses are offered in combination with practical training within a dual system of education.
The Jade University of Applied Sciences regards itself as a research-based, family and environmentally-friendly university. In the areas of applied research and development, it is one of the highest performing technical universities in Germany. It envisions its promising areas of research in the fields of energy and environment, health and technology, mobility and logistics, including information and communication. Despite being founded in 2009, all three study locations have a long tradition in their respective educational priorities with the nautical training in Elsfleth dating back to 1832. In Oldenburg engineers have been trained since 1877 and in Wilhelmshaven the original Academy for Business Administration was established in 1947.
The Department of Maritime in Elsfleth at the Jade University has a history of more than 180 years as a nautical training school and it is now the largest maritime university institution in Germany. The Maritime Campus in Elsfleth houses some of Germany’s only facilities, with a ship handling simulator, manoeuvring basin, offshore training centre as well as the worldwide unique Heavy Lift Simulator. The courses in nautical science and maritime and port management form the maritime core of the department. The International Transport Management (ITM) programme is to be integrated as a high-profile to attract international students to the new  International Logistics Management (ILM) course. Students of the Master's programme in Maritime Management can also strengthen their international career perspectives through academic activities supported by the Australian Maritime College. Currently, an extra-occupational Master’s programme is also being developed. With the acquisition of several doctoral scholarships, a unique opportunity has recently been created at the Department of Maritime Studies in Elsfleth to offer, among other things, all academic degrees in the maritime sector from a Bachelor to a PhD in conjunction with the University of Oldenburg and the Institute OFFIS.
