Welcome to Kempten University of Applied Sciences!

We warmly invite children to attend four university lectures each semester held especially for them. The topics cover a very broad spectrum – history, natural science, politics, law, mechanical engineering, to name just a few. The professors and lecturers carefully tailor their talks to suit this special audience to ensure the enquiring young minds can enjoy, get drawn in and fully understand the lectures.
Since Professor Arnulf Deinzer launched the Kids’ University in 2005, some 6,000 children have had the chance to tackle all sorts of exciting questions in science and research in depth.
