Paper and Bioprocess Engineering Exchange Program

This program is open to all ESF students interested in studying at the Munich University of Applied Sciences (MUAS), in Munich, Germany.

MUAS is located in the heart of Munich. It is the largest university of its kind in Bavaria and is the second largest in Germany. Students can choose courses taught in English from among 14 departments, including the areas of papermaking, printing, technology, economy, social studies and design.

Munich is one of the most beautiful cities in the world with the highest quality of living and is ranked as one of the safest cities in Germany.

The city of Munich, capital of Bavaria, is a green city and major European culture center, with a reputation as a high-tech location, home to headquarters of leading companies such as BMW and Siemens. Bavaria is one of the strongest economic regions in Europe.

Munich’s goal of being the first city with over one million inhabitants to supply electricity only through the use of renewable energies by 2025, is resulting in a massive implementation of renewable energy projects, including photovoltaic, wind, biomass and hydropower.

Interested students need departmental approval and to submit the MUAS online application material through our International Education Office.

Interested students should first schedule an appointment per e-mail.

Favorite Quote
“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” ― Margaret Atwood
