Dual degree course

Linking higher education and in-company training

The degree course is linked with in-company and inter-company training. During the 1st first part of the degree course, students spend three days a week in company training and additionally during the lecture-free period. The knowledge required for successful completion of training at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) is imparted during training at the vocational school (BBS). The 1st part of the course ends after four semesters. At the same time, the training is completed with the IHK examination.

The 2nd part of the course consists of two semesters of full-time study, with periods of operation during the lecture-free period, in which university-supervised projects are carried out for the course. The final Bachelor's thesis in the 7th semester again takes place in the company.



Students are selected by the partner companies. The prerequisite for studying is therefore an additional training contract with one of these companies.
