As an applied university, the THB traditionally has close contacts to regional and non-regional industrial partners, and is devoted to preparing for jobs with German companies. It has excellent contacts to the manifacturers Opel and Ford, both located within a 50km radius around the campus, and several car supply companies. The TH Bingen focuses on electro-mobility, renewable resources, and mechatronics.
