Our goals

The association seeks: 

  • to maintain and develop links between graduates of Kempten University of Applied Sciences. We keep a membership list which all ordinary members can access, and informal exchanges at regular meetings and other events provides a framework for networking know-how.
  • to promote professional development. The association aims to run a wide and diverse range of events addressing current issues of direct use and interest to alumni.
  • to support teaching at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. Students do not/cannot find out whether teaching and placement content and material was tailored to work until they leave university. The experience of alumni in the form of critical feedback can help improve University training.
  • to answer key questions such as routes to a professional career and specialisms by supporting current students at Kempten University of Applied Sciences. The association also aims to facilitate placements, final year dissertations, etc.
  • to promote the transfer of knowledge and technology at Kempten University of Applied Sciences – a fundamental aspect of association work. This long-term commitment is to further strengthen links between the University and business, benefitting the economy in both Kempten and the Allgäu region as a whole.
  • to improve links to business. We offer companies contact with students, graduates and professors. This interface function benefits both the new members of staff and the companies themselves. It enables problems to be discussed and dealt with on a broader basis and synergies to be harnessed.
