Working on a better world

Our planet is over 4.6 billion years old. And despite having only just arrived, we’ve already made a huge impact. We can’t imagine what the world will look like in 10,000 years’ time. We can however imagine what kind of world we want to leave behind for our children and our grandchildren. What can be improved, what can done be better, what can be done smarter.

HAS University of Applied Sciences has been addressing the world of tomorrow for over 70 years. Locally and globally. Where’s the perfect balance between people, planet and profit? How can we provide enough good and healthy food for everyone? How can we create a healthy living environment?

At HAS University of Applied Sciences, our education, knowledge transfer and research are aimed at day-to-day situations, in real life. Combining the expertise and experience of HAS University of Applied Sciences’ lecturers and field professionals with the fresh perspective of our students. That's how we’re working together on solutions to minor as well as major issues in the field of agribusiness, food and the living environment.

The world of HAS University of Applied Sciences is big. But at the centre of it are always our students and course participants. Open minded, curious and alert. True HAS students. Ready to get to work.
