Bauhaus-Universitat Weimar is an international university with a highly distinctive spectrum of subjects. Situated in the historic city of Weimar, Germany, it originated from two progressive, international institutions: the Weimar Saxon-Grand Ducal Art School and the "Staatliches Bauhaus". Both were infused with different nationalities and developed ideas known and respected the world over. We at Bauhaus-Universitat Weimar continue to forge a unique path that offers unparalleled opportunities by combining science and technology with art and design as well as with international philosophy.In 1919, Walter Gropius created the Bauhaus in Weimar - four years later he called for a search for the "new unity of art and engineering". That meant combining the vanguard of art and design with modern industry. With this approach, the Bauhaus became the most famous school of architecture, art, and design in the 20th century.Bauhaus-Universitat Weimar sees itself precisely in this sense as a "Bauhaus of the 21st century" - open, experimental, ultra-modern in the technical as well as in the aesthetic sense, free from any imitation of the past, a "digital Bauhaus". The university's objectives are reflected in the main fields of study and research in architecture, civil engineering, art and design as well as the media. The result is an ideal space for creative academic and artistic work, supported by laboratories, workshops, studios, and libraries. In addition, Bauhaus-Universitat Weimar is a truly international university, with a large number of exchange, study, and research programmes throughout the world, including in Addis Ababa, Chicago, Lyon, Moscow, New York, Rome, Shanghai, Tokyo, and Zurich.

Today’s university is rooted in an outstanding tradition. Important chapters in the history of art and architecture over the past 150 years were written here in Weimar. Initially a pure art college, it later assumed the character of a modern college of applied science with numerous engineering/architectural disciplines, and is now once again an institution where the fields of art and technology are brought together through the faculties of architecture, civil engineering, art and design and the media.
