Welcome to the Career Centre for Professorial Development

We offer information and services concerning your professorial career at TH Wildau or another Technical University of Applied Sciences (UAS, German: TH/FH).

UAS are a type of university that is very popular in the German-speaking countries. In comparison to regular universities, research at the UAS is particularly practice-oriented. Professors cooperate closely with partners from industry and business to find solutions to urgent application-related questions. Unfortunately, the UAS type of university is still little known outside of German-speaking countries, which is why only few international applications arrive for advertised professorships. Yet there are many international candidates who are qualified for a career as a UAS-professor. We would like to attract international professors and support people at different career stages.

For professors

Togehter we create opportunities for individually designed freedom - for example through

  • professional support for appointment committees
  • new possibilities for reducing teaching load
  • individual opportunities for development

For students

We advise you on the UAS-professorship and support you on your individual path - for example through

  • offers of mentoring and exchange
  • individual career counselling
  • support in finding a company or research institution

For Associate lecturers

Together, we design creative teaching and support your further qualification for professorship - for example through

  • exchange formats with professors or students
  • individual career counselling
  • customised offers for development

For Academic staff

We provide you with support in your academic career and open up opportunities for development - for example through

  • individual career counselling
  • support for both your academic and professional qualification
  • the option of taking on teaching assignments

For Alumni

Staying connected and shaping the future together - for example through

  • newsletter of the career centre and information on university news
  • the option of taking on teaching assignments
  • exchange formats between alumni and students


The Career Centre for Professorial Development is committed to the principle of diversity and consciously promotes the diverse career paths to a TH professorship. Since the Career Centre is working against the Germany-wide shortage of experts at Technical Universities of Applied Sciences, it is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the framework of the "FH Personal" programme.
