About the programme
The full time course comprises of lectures, practical work sessions, an industrial placement, and a final Diploma thesis. The programme lasts 6 semesters and focuses on general fields of study in the first three semesters, while specialised subjects are covered in the next three semesters. Industrial placement in one of the local companies is 12 weeks long and takes place in the fifth semester.
An obligatory course and an entrepreneurship seminar in the third year assume that students master key topics from the first two years which are interdisciplinary connected in these two subjects.
In the diploma thesis, students typically continue with the project they carried out during their industrial placement. This allows for more thorough problem solving connected with a concrete working environment.
