For high school graduates who wish to combine an academic degree with an apprenticeship
Clever school-leavers with tertiary admittance who wish to combine an academic degree with a solid, practical apprenticeship can complete our combined degree and vocational programme in 4½ years.
Parallel to your university studies, we train you in our high-tech training workshops and in various departments. During the university phase, you can concentrate fully on your studies since you are financially supported throughout the entire training and study phase by the training remuneration or a scholarship.
The combined degree and vocational programme starts with the apprenticeship phase (incl. vocational school) on 01 September. After 13 months and part 1 of the final apprenticeship examination, the degree phase at the University of Applied Sciences starts on 01 October. During the lecture periods, you will be a full-time student. In the lecture-free periods, you will undertake the practical training phase at Kathrein. During your internship semester, you will take part 2 of the final examination for industrial mechanic or electronics technician for devices and systems at the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK). This is the completion of your apprenticeship. In the following lecture-free periods, you will work in our engineering departments where you will also write your bachelor’s thesis. The duration of the combined degree and vocational programme is 4½ years.
