What are the advantages of the different study models and how do I apply for them?
You are financially secure and acquire a thorough knowledge of a company while you are still studying.
If you decide to take the “Degree Programme Plus” option, you combine an apprenticeship and a degree programme (leading to a B.Eng. degree) at Esslingen.
With the “degree programme with enhanced phases of practical experience”, you enter into an agreement with one of our partner companies to complete all the practical phases of your programme in that company and work there during the semester break. In return, the company supports you financially while you are studying.
For whom is the study programme suitable?
You enjoy high-tech and electronics.
You are interested in computers and Information Technology.
You are interested in systematically analysing and solving problems.
Accuracy and openness to new things are some of the skills you have.
Maths and physics are not difficult for you at school.
You are in a particularly good position if you have already completed an apprenticeship in the technical field.
During my studies at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, I certainly appreciated the pleasant working atmosphere during the lectures and the open communication with my lecturers and the President’s Office. The lectures in combination with the associated labs helped me a lot in practice.
