HTWK Leipzig is pooling competences in four teaching and research areas. Thus, the university is committing to unity of teaching and research.

The respective areas are based on the strengths and potential of HTWK Leipzig and the current and future demand of economy and society, and combine cross-disciplinary studies and research activity. Within this framework, clusters are formed which contribute to forming new networks and activating synergies. They are essential to the strategic measures of the university. The degree programmes at HTWK Leipzig are scientifically substantiated and with a practical orientation.
