Nuertingen-Geislingen University can look back on almost half a century of proud tradition. Founded in 1949 as a College of Agricultural Engineering, it was converted into a University of Applied Sciences in 1972 and later got its current name "Nuertingen-Geislingen University (NGU)".
Today, the degree programs have been greatly enhanced by the strong core competencies in business, economics and environmental studies prevalent at the university.
