If you are unsure about which of the engineering or informatics degree courses at Offenburg University suits you best, consider first enrolling in the preparatory study program “startING,” which is offered both in the winter and summer semesters.

If you are interested in an additional pedagogical component of your studies, consider our “Plus” degree courses, which prepare you both for a subsequent teacher training course (i.e. one of the Master’s degree programs in Vocational Education) and a career in industry. Graduates of our vocational-education Master’s programs typically go on to complete teacher training at a vocational school to become full-fledged teachers.

Finally, if vocational training seems too hands-on to you and an academic education too theoretical, or if you are exactly looking for a combination of the two, Hochschule Offenburg in cooperation with renowned companies in the Ortenau region and the Technical School in Offenburg offers the “KOMBI” study course, which leads to one of the following degrees at our department:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and IHK-certified training as electronics engineer for machines and systems (the IHK is the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce)
  • Bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics and IHK-certified training as mechatronics technician
  • Bachelor’s degree in Applied Computer Science and IHK-certified training as IT specialist.
