Constructor University offers innovative postgraduate opportunities

Constructor UniversityNew degree programs, new collaborations, new formats, a new leadership and a new name: 2022 brought numerous innovations for Constructor University in Germany.

The private university in Bremen also hit record numbers with over 1,800 students, and it can also claim significant breakthroughs in research and signed new corporate partnerships securing millions in funding.

This academic year was one for the books for the university in Bremen-Grohn, Germany. 1,829 students are currently enrolled at Constructor University – this is over 12% more than the largest number of students ever hosted in the history of the university. Young people from 119 countries have come to study in Bremen, consolidating the English-language university's position as the most international one in Germany.

Cutting-edge infrastructure is also in the making: hybrid lecture halls and team-based learning rooms are to be inaugurated in the coming months. Explosive growth is impossible without new synergies and the year has been a pivotal one in terms of corporate cooperation. Partnerships with companies such as Anisoprint, known for 3D printing systems, ChemDiv, a global leader in drug research, JetBrains, software giant in software development, and with the tech company Continental, open up new opportunities for students to gain practical experience.

At the heart of the university’s business is research – an area which had many breakthroughs in 2022. For example, the development of world's largest industrial delta 3D printer on campus. With a commitment to focus on entrepreneurship, start-ups on campus flourished this year among students and alumni. Student developed "Lanafrica", a central database for African languages, founded their own companies or became socially involved in the Bremen region.

One team made it into the top 50 of the Google Solution Challenge with their app "Lighthouse", which helps in the search for missing people. The "V-Bionic" team even won the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2022, using the $100,000 prize money to further develop their solution for treating hand paralysis using an exoskeleton.

The excellence of research and teaching at Constructor University was once again demonstrated by its outstanding performance in university rankings. In the U-Multirank evaluation, the university took second place in Germany. Worldwide, it was able to maintain its position among the top 25%.

The most significant change in 2022 came in late November, when the private university in Bremen received its new name: Constructor University. Having said farewell to its former name “Jacobs University,” Constructor University is now moving forward with new energy.
