About the Program:
The University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim exists since 1971, emerging from the Holztechnikum that had once earned Rosenheim the title "city of wood". This tradition lives on in the range of courses offered today: students from all over the world learn everything there is to know about architecture and interior design while also learning to use basic resources such as wood for as a construction material. But many students use the university's international contacts to get practical training abroad, in Canada for example, where Rosenheim knowledge is much in demand.
Germany, Oktoberfest, Porsche, Autobahn, and World War II are some of most common images that people think of when they think of Germany. As Europe's largest economy and second most populous nation, Germany is a key member of the continent's economic, political, and defense organizations. European power struggles immersed Germany in two devastating World Wars in the first half of the 20th century and left the country occupied by the victorious Allied powers of the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in 1945. With the advent of the Cold War, two German states were formed in 1949: the western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the eastern German Democratic Republic (GDR). The democratic FRG embedded itself in key Western economic and security organizations, the EC, which became the EU, and NATO, while the Communist GDR was on the front line of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification in 1990. Since then, Germany has expended considerable funds to bring Eastern productivity and wages up to Western standards. In January 1999, Germany and 10 other EU countries introduced a common European exchange currency, the euro.
Rosenheim is a district and city in the south of Bavaria; just south of Munich. It has a population of approximately 60,000. In 1234, Rosenheim was mentioned for the first time as a market. The town's landmark is the gothic spire (65 m) of the parish church St. Nikolaus (1450) with its baroque onion dome (1641).
