Studies and practical training



Studies and practical training

From the winter semester 2022/23, we will be offering the bachelor's degree programme DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES as a study programme with practical training with regional companies for the first time.

A study programme with practical training offers you optimal opportunities to get to know the company during the accompanying practical phases and to deepen your practical experience from your studies in a company.



In the Bachelor's degree programme DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES with practical training, you attend the same modules of the regular Bachelor's degree programme and supplement them with practical phases in the company. You are enrolled as a student at the participating universities, Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences and Clausthal University of Technology, and are part of the student body. You also sign an employment contract with the cooperating company.

The DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES degree programme with practical training lasts up to seven semesters (six semesters plus a voluntary practical semester as a semester off). You complete your studies with a Bachelor of Science degree. We recommend completing the practical semester in the sixth semester.


The practical phases

For the practical phases in the company, you have a total of about eight weeks in the lecture-free periods in February, July and August. You will complete your practical project and subsequent Bachelor's thesis in the sixth semester. In addition, you have the option of a voluntary internship semester in the company, in which you can deepen your skills and abilities for professional practice. It is possible to apply for a semester off for this.
