The Bremen University of Applied Sciences enjoys a long tradition that goes back to 1799. Approximately 8 000 students enroll in 70 degree courses in areas such as engineering, natural sciences, economics and social sciences; about two-thirds are required to complete semesters of study or praxis abroad.

An open sourced multi-player environment tool has been developed by a team at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, in association with the University of Applied Sciences of Bremen. Betaville is a new crowdsourcing program designed to collaborate the ideas of developers, architects, engineers, builders, ad residents. Currently, Betaville features an accurate 3d depiction of New York City. People are able to access this map and propose changes by altering the city and importing new design ideas. The future of urban development may rest within this revolutionary tool.

M2C Institute for Applied Mediatechnology Bremen

Das M2C Institut an der Hochschule Bremen verbindet die wissenschaftliche Perspektive angewandter Medienforschung in der Informatik mit den Medienstrategien im Bundesland Bremen in praktischer Hinsicht: Medien sind heute mehr denn je zum Bindeglied zwischen dem einzelnen und der Gesellschaft, Arbeit und Freizeit und insbesondere zwischen innovativer Idee und wirtschaftlicher, sozialer, ökologischer und kultureller Weiterentwicklung geworden. Die Bedeutung der digitalen Medien in der Wechselwirkungsgesellschaft zeichnet sich dort ab, wo die Entwicklung innovativer Produkte, neue kulturelle Handhaben, neue Arbeitsprozesse und neue interdisziplinäre Forschung zum notwendigen Baustein werden um in einer Situation der globalen Integration handlungsfähig zu sein.
