Today's Aalen University was founded on October 1st, 1962 as the Aalen State Engineering School . In January 1963, the engineering department for metal finishing and materials science in Schwäbisch Gmünd was incorporated . On April 1, 1963, the engineering school officially began teaching in makeshift barracks . At the end of 1968 she moved to the “Beethovenstrasse” location built by Günter Behnisch . In 1971 the state engineering school was renamed a technical college and in 1997 it was renamed Aalen University of Technology and Economics . In 2006 the "Electronics and Computer Science" and "Optics and Mechatronics" faculties move to the new "Burren" location. In 2010 it became a university of applied sciences.


Aalen University currently has around 60 courses in the fields of technology and economics . After completing their bachelor's degree , students can gain further qualifications in around 30 master’s degree programs . Around 150 professors and many other lecturers work at Aalen University.
