The programme with extended practice combines a regular bachelor’s degree programme at the university with intensive practical placements relating to your academic subject matter with one of our partners.
Dual system students complete intensive practical blocks in their company during lecture-free periods, the practical semester and while writing their bachelor’s or master’s thesis. You will be involved in various projects, ideally rotating between different departments, and might also get the chance to manage your own small projects as you progress.
There are carefully planned alternating blocks split between theory and practice, based on the usual structure of the degree programme in question. Whether you continue to work in the company during the theoretical elements of your training at the university of applied sciences depends on your employer.
This gives companies an ideal opportunity to already introduce young people while they are studying to the specific tasks they will be expected to perform later on in their professional lives. In turn, students already gain initial insights into their range of tasks.
The sandwich programme with extended practice rounds off with a vocationally based bachelor’s thesis produced in your choice of host company.
