What our students and graduates say

Vincent on campus of Hof University
Tariq on campus of Hof University

Vincent from Germany

"The Artificial Intelligence and Robotics program is the perfect opportunity to learn everything about AI. Not only do you get a mathematical look behind the technology, but you also learn how to apply it in project work and your own implementations. All questions related to the field are answered in class, and it is not uncommon for social issues to be addressed.

As a location, Hof University has the great advantage of being very active in science and research. Not only do you have access to the concentrated, up-to-date knowledge of the professors and lecturers, but you can also easily use the technical solutions of the university for all your needs. As a result, you are excellently trained in the field and have the best possible opportunities for a career in industry or research.

I have enjoyed every aspect of my studies and can hardly imagine that the opportunities available could be topped anywhere else. I can highly recommend the course and Hof University!"


Alaa from Syria

"Studying master's Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Hof University has been an enriching experience. I appreciate the program's comprehensive and up-to-date curriculum especially because it combines both theoretical knowledge and hands-on lab work. Moreover, the professors are extremely knowledgeable about the field, and they are always keeping up with the latest advancements which can be seen in their lectures.

In addition, the university’s staff are very nice and extremely helpful, and almost all of them speak English which is a plus for new international students. The university also provides language courses at multiple levels for quicker integration into society. As for the city of Hof, it’s a very relaxed and welcoming city with everything a student would need, it also has very nice scenery and beautiful nature."

Tariq from India

"Hello everyone, I'm Tariq from Jamnagar, India. The Master's in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Hof provides a comprehensive understanding of AI, covering the latest architectures and their integration with robotics. The course is primarily in English, but the additional German language knowledge provides benefits for daily communication. Despite Hof being a smaller town, it offers  various attractive places like a bowling alley, ice skating, a picturesque lake, and a watchtower for city views. 

What sets Hof University apart is its exceptional support and infrastructure. The institution facilitates various opportunities, such as the I2P2 project. Through this initiative, I had the privilege to collaborate with students from Pennsylvania State University in Philadelphia, USA, on a robotics project. This experience not only enriched my academic journey but also allowed me to explore different places, striking a perfect balance between studies and exploration."

Neha from India

"Hof is a very quiet and ideal place for a student to live. The university itself is very supportive, with many opportunities for students like me to get involved in various events. I am a student who is interested in research. Hof University has given me a good foundation by allowing me to participate in various winter and summer schools, conferences, etc.

The university has supported me with a scholarship to help me focus on my studies and also participate in external career-oriented events. The Welcome Center at Hof organizes events such as a cultural workshop at the beginning of my studies, which helped me a lot in dealing with the culture shock."
