Winter Block Seminar 2021

Improve your English and get ready for an exclusive international and technical experience!

You are an international student, your are enrolled in our Plan-B program, or you just finished school and are waiting to start your studies? Take part in a live online seminar offered by the Faculty of Management at the Esslingen Hilltop Campus in Germany.

In the Winter Block Seminar in Technical Basics international students acquire fundamental technical skills and engineering knowledge. This unique experience broadens the understanding of technical business administration in an industrial environment, at the interface between technical and business areas.

Of course, you receive a certificate for your passed exams stating the corresponding ECTS. If you pass all 3 exams, the “Technology 1” module can be credited at TBB and TAB and as part of the Double Degree with the Gannon University. And if you fail? Don't worry, the module can be repeated in the regular course of study and does not count as a failed attempt.
