What is the difference between Universities of applied sciences and Technical Universities of Germany??

So many students ask this question, the simple and short answer to this is that TU is more research oriented and provides a very theoretical knowledge based on the subjects which related to a specific field. On the other hand, Applied Sciences or FH (Fachhochschule) is totally focused on practical knowledge or industry oriented studies.

With a TU degree, you are eligible to pursue your further Doctorate Degree according to percentage of your grades. With FH degree, generally you can not further pursue your Doctorate Degree but only with some special profile and conditions, you can pursue it.
