Experience the company in all its diversity by combining your academic studies and your vocational training while creating the best starting condition for your professional future.

The university studies at Baden-Württemberg Co-operative State University (DHBW) start on October 1st of each year, last six semesters (three academic years) and are divided into a theoretical and a practical component.
Each semester is divided into 12 weeks of theory and 12 weeks of practice. This creates an appropriate balance between theory and practice. Participation in a foreign language exchange program for at least one semester is also required. In doing so, you will receive a second degree from the exchange university.
The targeted theoretical preparation helps students to better recognise and understand operational workflows.
Conversely, the DHBW subject matter is better processed when it is enriched by practical application.
