Road trips are fun, right? This is one of a special kind. You will literally hit the road on your journey to learn about German engineering. We have planned courses during the morning which will be topically continued in the form of company visits in regional cities afterwards. In the late afternoon, we drive back to academics as there will be further eye-opening lectures on relevant business topics.
To round up the day, you can engage in delightful social activities in the evening – or take your time to charge your batteries for the next day.
On your tour, you will be able to connect with academics and professionals who are experienced in their field: During the courses, lectures, or company visits. This could be a way for you to “get a foot in the door”. Maybe you will find your passion in one of the companies’ business fields and would want to work for them in the future?
You will share the journey with other students who come from various countries and cultures all over the world. This is a perfect base for you to exchange ideas with like-minded people who are interested in the same thing as you: Engineering & Business.
Is it already a dream for you to start your career in Germany? Well, this is the chance you’ve been looking for. This could be the foundation to pursuing your goal - a great opportunity you would not want to miss.
Or maybe you are just curious about the German way of doing business and engineering?
In any case, you are very welcome to join us on this journey.
You might wonder what it means to be studying at a German university of applied sciences.
The universities of applied sciences are a vital part of the German higher education system. Around 40% of all students are enrolled at a university of applied sciences and the system keeps gaining popularity outside of Germany. With a position right at the transfer point of science and business, students get the best of both worlds combined. The students not only learn about latest scientific findings, but also about how they can be applied to business.
Learning in universities of applied sciences takes place in relatively small groups, hence in a personal atmosphere and with a high teacher-student-ratio. The professors are required to have at least five years of practical experience in their field of teaching so that practical orientation and relevance of the content is guaranteed.
Another specialty of universities of applied sciences is that they maintain strong bonds with regional or international companies. They cooperate on projects, letting the students get highly relevant insights about business from early on. This way, useful connections can be made, and students get the chance to build a network early in their career. For the students, all of this leads to an easy entry into the professional work life and can open various job opportunities.
