Bachelor of Science
Hochschule Mannheim - Mannheim University of Applied Sciences is offering international and German students the opportunity to gain the internationally-recognised Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Automation Technology degree as part of the Engineering Sciences international study programme. The degree is normally awarded after a seven-semester course of study comprising 210 credits.
Studies start in the September before the first semester as a three-week language, culture and orientation programme. During the first two semesters, lectures and lab courses are held exclusively in English. Language instruction - German for students from overseas and English for German-speaking students - is an integral part of the degree programme. In addition, all-day language classes in two or three-week sessions take place in the semester breaks.
The fifth semester is set aside for a six-month work experience term (internship) in industry. During the last year lectures focus on special automation technology topics. In the last semester at the university, the student embarks on an independent project to fulfil the requirement of the degree Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Automation Technology.
The Automation Technology programme was accredited in June 2004 by ASIIN, the German governmental body responsible for the accreditation of university information technology, science and maths courses.
The programme starts every winter semester (in September).
The University also offers a Master of Science programme in Automation and Energy Systems.
